GUEST POD: Empire Burlesque on Watching The Covers Flow (WCF 1)

This is an episode of Watching The Covers Flow with Ray Padgett. Watching the Covers Flow is a podcast that dives deep into covers of, and by, the most covered songwriter in rock and roll: Bob Dylan. Host Ray Padgett (Flagging Down the Double E’s newsletter, Pledging My Time book) explores covers across era and genre, from a hip-hop “Subterranean Homesick Blues” to a bluegrass “Ring Them Bells” to Dylan’s own frequent detours from writing his own songs to singing other people’s.

And also, because Ray tackles the same album we talked about on our last episode – Empire Burlesque. He shows how covers produce a very different take on these songs.
