Give Them An Argument

Current Affairs "House Economist" Rob Larson, historian and Jacobin Contributing Editor Matt Karp, and historian and Jacobin contributor Alex Gourevitch do a panel discussion of how to understand the concept of freedom in a way that doesn't just cede it to libertarians, how important that concept has been to left-wing movements from abolitionism to the early labor movement and how all of this relates to the contemporary left. Then, in the "Outlaws & Revolutionaries" segment, David Griscom joins Ben to discuss Sturgill Simpson's dreamy, druggy, political, and poetic bluegrass album "Cuttin' Grass."

Sturgill Simpson

Broken Record with Rick Rubin, Malcolm Gladwell, Bruce Headlam and Justin Richmond

Kentucky singer/songwriter Sturgill Simpson was in his mid-30s when he found fame as a country artist in Nashville. He had already lived a full life including a stint in the Navy, and years spent working in Salt Lake City rail yards. His outsider status in Nashville boosted his outlaw appeal. But as time passed, Sturgill began to despise the relentless expectations of the major label system. In true rebel fashion, Sturgill has now taken back control of his career and returned to his independent roots with the release of a bluegrass album: Cuttin’ Grass - Vol. 1 (Butcher Shoppe Sessions). In this interview with Rick Rubin, Sturgill explains why his bluegrass album is the purest expression of his work, why it bothers him that people often overlook the stories in his songs, and why being classified as a country artist has been, perhaps, the biggest detriment to his career.Subscribe to Broken Record's YouTube channel to hear old and new interviews, often with bonus content: https://www.youtube.com/brokenrecordpodcastYou can also check out past episodes here: https://brokenrecordpodcast.com/You can find some of our favorite Sturgill Simpson songs by clicking HERE — enjoy!
