Razorcake Podcast #211: With Kurt Morris

America! Who doesn’t love America? (Well, okay. Yeah, I know.) America is a unique country—each of the fifty states that comprise the country has its own beauty and personality. I’ve had the good fortune to visit forty-six states (Hawaii, Alaska, North Dakota, and New Mexico, in case you’re wondering) and have seen some gorgeous sunsets, awe-inspiring mountains, farmland as far as the eye can see, and the bustle and diversity of its cities. Although I’m by no means a nationalist and despite its contentious political stands, I still love living in a country that has so much variety (although it’s still impossible to find a good burrito east of Chicago). So all that being said, the theme this time around is songs with American state names in the titles. Hope you hear something you like!
