Malcolm Gladwell and Rick Rubin Launch a New Music Podcast, Broken Record: Listen Online




This past month, Malcolm Gladwell (author), Rick Rubin (record producer), and Bruce Headlam (media desk editor of the New York Times) teamed up to launch Broken Record. It’s a music podcast that doubles as “liner notes for the digital age.” Or, as Gladwell tells Rolling Stone, it’s “a kind of musical variety show.” Some episodes offer an in-depth narrative. Others feature mini performances and interviews with musicians–plus an assortment of “digressions, arguments, back-stories, and random things to disagree with about music.”

The episodes released so far can be streamed online here. For new episodes, subscribe to the podcast via iTunes or Spotify. The latest episode with Niles Rodgers and Chic appears below:
