In honor of the 25th anniversary of her debut album Eighteen Over Me, host J.D. Reager talks to musician and songwriter Garrison Starr about the making of that record and how having a breakthrough hit (“Superhero”) changed her life, plus her escape from the evangelical South, how her sexual orientation lead to difficulty in both her personal life and professional career, overcoming creative self-doubt, and collaborating with folks like Neilson Hubbard, Glen Phillips and Margaret Cho. J.D. also spins “Don’t Believe in Me” from Garrison’s 2021 album Girl I Used to Be.
Available via Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts and everywhere fine podcasts are distributed.
