The Quinn Spinn: Oct. 7, 2019

Darrin Bradbury is a world-aware folk troubadour whose writing style points out the mundane occurrences of everyday life with wry wit and, at times, dark humor. This is prevalent on his new album, Talking Dogs & Atom Bombs, which was released on Anti Records on Sept. 20, 2019.

Darrin joins The Quinn Spinn today, and we talk about the album and much more — including authenticity, society, and technology’s impact on what it means to be human in the 21st Century.
