The Jump is a new podcast from Mailchimp Presents in partnership with Little Everywhere, with executive producers Dann Gallucci (of Modest Mouse and The Murder City Devils fame), Jane Marie (This American Life), and Hrishikesh Hirway (Song Exploder). First season guests are (in no particular order) Perfume Genius, Big Boi, Courtney Love, Neko Case, Esperanza Spalding, Karen O, and Dave 1.
Hosted by Garbage’s Shirley Manson, the 7-episode, short-form interview series features conversations with musicians about “the moments in an artist’s career where they decide to take a leap into something new, and after that, nothing is the same.” Each episode focuses on a single song the artist has chosen that is especially meaningful—both in their personal life and for their career trajectory.
The first episode premieres today, Monday, June 24, 2019, at http://bit.ly/thejumppodcast or wherever you get your podcasts. New episodes will premiere weekly.
