Listen to this episode of the Moment with guest Richard Shindell:
Richard Shindell is a singer-songwriter who is best known for telling deeply human stories with his songs. His latest album is Careless. We kick off today’s show with Richard playing a song off the new album titled “All Wide Open.” Then, Brian and Richard talk about the themes that Richard keeps revisiting in his songs (10:30), the time he spent in the seminary (20:30), and why this new album is a kind of departure for him creatively (34:00). The two round out the conversation talking about Richard’s writing process (44:00) and why the dispossessed are so often featured in his music (54:00). Richard ends the podcast by playing one of Brian’s favorite songs—“The Kenworth of My Dreams.”
