Dissecting Song Exploder, “The Best Use of the Podcast Medium Ever”
/

Song Exploder is one of the most widely celebrated podasts on this or any other planet. The host, Hrishikesh Hirway, is a multi-hyphenate kind of creator working across a number of impressive projects and roles. Most notably on this show, however, he takes a step back from being a dominant voice and creative thinker to let his guest receive most of the airtime.

This isn’t just his interview style. It’s the show’s production style, too: almost nowhere in the middle of the episode will Hrishikesh appear.

Song Exploder teaches us a number of things about creating better, more immersive experiences as showrunners. In this episode, 3 Clips producer Tallie Gabriel brings us an episode and three tiny pieces, revealing a few hidden techniques, that we can all learn from — even if we’re nothing like Hrishikesh (and few are). It’s a deep dive into some deep emotions found inside one of the world’s most deeply moving shows. (We say: bring it.)
