Shirley: Hi I’m Shirley Manson, host of the Mailchimp podcast The Jump. I’m pretty obsessed with music, and I particularly love talking to other musicians. Something you might have noticed in the first season of The Jump, when I talked to the likes of Big Boi about how music has the ability to transform not just the musicians who make the music, but those of us lucky enough to hear it.
Big Boi: To see people motivated by a song that we made was mind blowing. You could really enlighten people, and you could help people through music.
Shirley: Season Two of The Jump finds me right back in the hot seat, talking to musicians about what brought them to these pivotal moments of self discovery, like the legendary George Clinton.
George Clinton: You just get into the flow of it. It’s almost like a preacher. “W. E. F. U. N. K, we funky. Home of the extra terrestrial brother, dealers of funky music, P-Funk.
Shirley: The extraordinary Brittany Howard.
Brittany Howard: I, I took a chance, and I was a little afraid and not wanting to fail. Then once I like, let go, everything showed up.
Shirley: And bringing experience into song with Angel Olsen.
Angel Olsen: The hardest part of it, or the continuous part of it, is that you feel like a natural born survivalist. You are ready for anything in a lot of ways, ready for detachment, loss of anyone in your life.
