EPISODE 37: Home in This World: Woody Guthrie’s Dustbowl Ballads W/ Randall Poster


Show Notes

Randall Poster is an American music supervisor and a longtime collaborator with film director Wes Anderson. For anyone not familiar with what a music supervisor does, he’s the person who selects the songs to play during a movie, television show, or commercial. Some of Randall’s credits include “Skyfall,” The Wolf of Wallstreet, and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” Randall recently collaborated with Kiss the Ground on a new project called “Home in This World: Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl Ballads.” It’s a track-by-track recreation of Guthrie’s 1940 “Dust Bowl Ballads” album, a collection of songs about the economical hardships of the Great Depression.
