About Broken Record

For generations of music lovers, the liner notes on albums were a central part of the way music was heard. You bought an album and it came with an accompanying narrative: a digression, an aside, a backstory—maybe even an invented history. We intuitively understood that great music required not just listening but conversation between the artist and the audience and the audience and the rest of the world.  

Broken Record is a podcast that restarts those conversations–in a world without liner notes– for a new audience of music lovers.

About Malcolm Gladwell

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of six New York Times bestsellers — The Tipping Point, Blink,Outliers, What the Dog Saw, David and Goliath, and Talking to Strangers. He is also the co-founder of Pushkin Industries, an audio content company that produces the podcasts Revisionist History, which reconsiders things both overlooked and misunderstood, and Broken Record, where he, Rick Rubin, Bruce Headlam, and Justin Richmond interview musicians across a wide range of genres. Gladwell has been included in the TIME 100 Most Influential People list and touted as one of Foreign Policy ’s Top Global Thinkers.

About Flea

Flea is an Australian-born American musician and occasional actor. He is best known as the bassist and co-founding member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and co-founder of The Silverlake Conservatory of Music.
