Yo La Tengo Part 1: 1986 - 1997

For this very special pair of episodes we decided to call in the experts!

Nick and Ewan are joined by Ben Zimmer, Jesse Jarnow, and Jeffrey Lewis. What could bring these three togethers for a mammoth three and a half hour chat? (Don't worry it's in two parts)

It could only be US Indie legends Yo La Tengo!

Ben is a renowned linguist and lexicographer, and big Yo La Tengo fan.

Jeffrey is, quite simply, a phenomenal musician, singer, songwriter, and comic book artist; he is also a massive Yo La Tengo fan.

Jesse? Well Jesse literally wrote the book on Yo La Tengo: Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo and the rise of Indie Rock.

Join us for an in depth look at the first half of the career of Yo La Tengo, and hear some shocking revelations on the way!!!
