“Books on the Bus” Podcast—Episode 2

Is Books on the Bus a rock podcast about literature, or a literary podcast about rock? You decide!

Today I’m chatting with Joey Cape, lead singer of the California punk band Lagwagon. He also plays guitar for Me First & The Gimme Gimmes and is a prolific solo artist and producer.

This episode features the origin stories for the Lagwagon songs “Owen Meany” and “Lullaby,” in addition to creative ways to promote reading live on stage, giving up on non-fiction 3/4 of the way through a book, and Cormac McCarthy—among many other topics.

Here’s Books on the Bus, episode 2:
