Adam Brodsky (Righteousness and Rejection)

Adam Brodsky gives zero fucks. Adam Brodsky cares very, very deeply. This is the dichotomy and part of the genius at the center of Philadelphia's own King of Anti-Folk (though he'd put that crown on your head and mine, just as quickly ... but maybe only if you deserved it). In this episode, Adam and I dig deep into rejection, betrayal, and hard traveling. Plus yelling at Nazis, landing a Guinness World Record, early days, vanishing acts, life, death, new recordings, and all things 'All Your Days'.
