Theme of Themes

This week we welcome Lily Sloane — host of's Radical Advice, and also composer of soundtracks, themes and jingles for podcasts, film and radio shows like the Top 30. She's here to talk about the art of composing for such constraints and share music that inspires the process.

Also this week we feature the new record Water from SadGirl, provide ample inspiration to play a whole lot of lazy, summer-evening music that continues to accompany San Francisco's current climate.
