Dan and Jenny talk about her upbringing in Detroit, Motown, coming to Philly as a student at UArts, learning the Meisner method and how it helped inform her as a songwriter as well as an actor, Canadian rock radio, and striving to be a "valid person". Jenny's new single, 'Higher Self', is out now anywhere you get digital music, along with a video featuring dancer Abigail Kelvas.
One of the bands Dan heard a lot about this summer was Riverby. He finally got a chance to talk with August Greenberg, front-person and songwriter of the band. The two talk about how the band came together, getting tricked into living in Manayunk (where they still live), their new video that features smashed cake and a lot of fake blood, and August's love of antagonizing her bandmate, Tyler (who has nothing but nice things to say about anyone).
*Note: The artist has changed their name to August and identifies as non-binary. At the time of recording, they identified as "Sophie".
