Jim Infantino (Fortune Tellers and Friends)

What if a psychic said you’d never make it in music? In this episode, Jim Infantino — songwriter, Jim’s Big Ego frontman, and novelist — tells us what happened next, along with stories from the early days and the road, the bubble-world of the creative mindset, a very special carriage house located in the Paris of the '90s, surprise studio visits from Aimee Mann, and how knowing your Friends from your 'Friends' can make all the difference.
