The Art of Longevity: a music talk show created and presented by Keith Jopling, founder of deep discovery site The Song Sommelier, “the antidote to the algorithm”.
The podcast is presented with premium British audio brand Bowers & Wilkins. Each show is recorded in one take – audio only. Keith is in a purpose designed podcast studio at West London’s Qube. Guests join via Zoom. Each guest receives a show plan with guide questions beforehand. The podcast is edited by partner Audio Culture (ex. BBC team).
The Guardian: “Eschewing the in-the-moment musical deconstruction of series like Song Exploder, this new podcast from Keith Jopling explores the long game. Each episode speaks to a band whose career has spanned decades and whose success has ebbed and flowed as tastes have shifted around them”.
