The Holy Ghost Of David Byrne

The Hang with Gregory Porter

From Talking Heads to filmmaking with Spike Lee, there’s a lot of creative joy to be had bringing people together in what Gregory dubs, the Holy Ghost of David Byrne. They reach back to the days when borrowing vinyl from the public library held more influence than the internet, and discuss how a simple bike ride can change the way we look out for each other, whatever our differences.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

David Byrne: All This Pleasure With A Punch In The Stomach

All Ears with Abigail Disney

This week on All Ears Abby invites us all to take a break from ongoing election shenanigans and enjoy a lively interview with musician David Byrne, whose eccentric musical stylings as the former Talking Heads frontman catapulted him into a multi-faceted career as an artist across many modes of expression. He’s written books, designed art installations, created journalism projects, and last year adapted his acclaimed concert tour, American Utopia, for Broadway. He and Abby look back at his remarkable journey and talk about some of the ways art pushed him to grow as a person, giving him perspective on some of his youthful, broad critiques of middle class American values. These insights led him to some revelations about his earlier work that manifest with a kind of joyful, percussive melancholy in American Utopia. Spike Lee filmed the show right before COVID hit in March, preserving a mood that seems like a perfect fit for these times. Lee’s filmed adaption of American Utopia is currently screening on HBO Max.
