Always wanted to know what's behind a certain song lyric? Then this is your podcast: Sound exploder invites artists like Metallica, Björk or Weezer who take their songs apart piece by piece and tell you how they came up with it and what's behind it. Super interesting!
Punch up the Jam
Comedians rearrange famous songs and add their own and offer a "punched-up" improved version. Sounds like a hilarious concept, right? Tune in to hear classics from Duran Duran, Madonna or Santana in a completely new way!
