Humanitou: Conversations of Humanness + Creativity
06: Joe Johnson, singer-songwriter and storyteller, on truth in fiction, death, loss and isolation, and playing the famed Ryman Auditorium
In this episode of the Humanitou Podcast series, I talk with singer-songwriter and musician Joe Johnson, a storyteller that learned at the sides of homegrown orators on the porches of Southern Mississippi. The most common themes of his music -- death, loss and isolation -- have been with him his entire life. He’ll share why. We find plenty of laughter in our conversation, too. We explore truth in fiction. There’s plenty of music, drugs and friction with the law, and then a rainbow that led to a new foothold far, far away. And … just a lot more really good stuff. It's all at humanitou.com.
