Bandsplainer, the podcast where host Olivia Ladd explains the impact of influential bands, recently tackled the massive body of work from Patti Smith. Guest Elena Franklin, of the band Reality Something, joined Ladd for a discussion of the music, literature, fine art and countless spheres of influence that Smith has been involved with over her fourty-odd years of creativity.
