Words & Guitar - 097 - "Ironclad"

By Sign on the Window

Words & Guitar continues to understand we aren't the Sleater-Kinney podcast you need, while striving to remain the one that you want! In case you forgot: each episode, we randomly select a Sleater-Kinney song, live with the song for a week (or two) and then get together to discuss. This week, episode 97, "Ironclad" off 2000's All Hands on the Bad One. We discuss the song's context (4:00) and comparisons to The Hot Rock and Dig Me Out; Daniel talks us through the Monitor-Merrimack ironclad battle referenced in the song (8:45) and talk about the song itself as metaphor and guide for your daily life (17:00). Recommended this week: Daniel won the lottery to see Hamilton in Portland (!!!) and talked briefly about the experience. Kelly is in the middle of Jessica Jones' second season on Netflix. As always, full show notes at our website - Sleater-Kinney Over the Week - You can also follow along @sotwpod on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram. Happy April Fool's Day!!! Next week: a trip to the woods.
