Podcast: Making Sense of Kid Rock

Never change, New Yorker:


This week in the magazine, Kelefa Sanneh profiles the genre-jumping musician Kid Rock, who got his start in hip-hop, went platinum with rap-rock, and then transitioned into country music. Here Sanneh listens to Kid Rock’s music with Curtis Fox and talks about how his early years in Detroit’s hip-hop scene shaped his identity as a country-rocker. Also, Donald Hall on what reading poetry has in common with oral sex (spoiler: vowels). Listen.
