Music Podcasting: Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isbell

This Nola Nerd Couple podcast is a bi-weekly podcast where we focus squarely on music. We will release a podcast on every other Friday where we talk about a new(ish) album and an older album. This week we focus on Sturgill Simpsons’ brilliant new album A Sailors Guide to Earth (my early frontrunner for 2016 album of the year) and Jason Isbell’s majestic Southeastern.
