Episode 1 – Nuggets

Strange Currencies Podcast

It’s here – our first venture into the world of podcasting! Hosted by Matt Ryan and Glenn Krake, the Strange Currencies Podcast will take a deep dive into a different musical topic with each episode. It’s just Matt and Glenn this time, but future episodes will feature special guest contributors.

In this inaugural episode, Matt and Glenn are nerd-ing out on the classic 1972 garage rock compilation, Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968. In addition to discussing the collection’s highs and lows, they’re discussing its influence, artwork, and other associated trivia.
