He speaks with your host Sean Chin about performing with so many different bands over a decade, going on tour with The New Pornographers, deconstructing their song “True”, artist mystique, parental musical influences, relationship with CBC, and the demise of Canadian public journalists such as Jian Ghomeshi and Amanda Lang.
