Three new local podcasts for your rotation

Other People’s Podcasts is an ongoing series in which we highlight other podcasts – those outside of the We Own This Town network. We’re proud of the shows we produce and distribute but there’s a healthy dose of content being made by others worth hearing. With this series, we bring you some additional entertainment and education through more podcasts created right here in Nashville.

Music Citizens Series from WNXP
Apple Podcasts | Spotify Podcasts

WNXP probably doesn’t need us to highlight anything they’re doing! If you’re reading this site, you’re already, likely, keenly aware of everything WNXP is up. However, this new series they are producing called Music Citizens just seemed too good to gloss over. The elevator pitch is simple: “a new podcast series about the people who make Nashville’s music industry work.” The first episode is an interview with Bruce Fitzpatrick, the 80-year old owner and operator of The End. Read that again – the 80-year old owner and operator. His story is intriguing to say the least.

The first episode in the new series drops June 20th, 2024 and there will be a launch party celebration at The End on June 21st, which just so happens to coincide with Fitzpatrick’s 81st birthday. Jason Ringenberg (Jason & the Scorchers), Pujol and Brennan Wedl are set to perform. You can read the full press release here but just go ahead and subscrive to WNXP Podcasts to be ready for when the episode drops.

Let’s Talk Ladies: Conversations Across Generations
Apple Podcasts | Spotify Podcasts

One of the greatest benefits of the internet is that it eschews the gatekeepers to certain kinds of conversations. Sometimes that is a bad thing but, more often, it’s a great conduit to human connection and understanding. Let’s Talk Ladies is most certainly the latter – tackling conversations for women that are only discussed in private circles or hushed tones. Topics include everything from first sexual experiences, to the possible fallacy of facial creams, to frank discussions about periods (and menopause). If any of that makes you squirm, that’s kind of the point! The hosts of this show do a great job of making these topics more comfortable… and it’s Nashville based!

Murder on Music Row
Apple Podcasts | Spotify Podcasts

The Tennessean has taken the dip into diversifying their offerings outside of regular reporting with this new podcast series Murder on Music Row. The eight part series covers the infamous, and unsolved, homicide of Kevin Hughes that happened in the literal streets of Music Row in 1989. The first episode is available for free in the podcast feed but it’s unclear if the additional episodes will be available without a Tennessean subscription. But, hey, that’s just another good reason to support some local journalism! Give the first episode a listen and then decide if you’re ready to subscribe to dive into more.
