TALKING LION is a weekly, long-form, artist-to-artist interview podcast hosted by Nate Flaks & Noah Longworth McGuire of Sleeping Lion. As artists/songwriters/producers, Nate & Noah have worked with a number of incredible rising artists since they first started their project in 2015.

Whether at sessions, parties, or over cups of coffee, they’ve had countless conversations with artists in the “middle” of their musical journeys. TALKING LION is about hitting “record” on these conversations and having a dialogue amongst friends about what life’s been like and where it’s going.

There is no real format to TALKING LION – no set structure or pre-asked questions. Instead, the interviews develop as conversations in real time.

With that said, before hitting record, TALKING LION will always start by providing the artist with their favorite mid-day food & drink (ex. guacamole/kombucha or fried chicken/root beer) as a means of breaking the ice. Likewise, the only question asked in advance is “what is your favorite lyric from one of your songs?

This lyric is meant to be talked about and as well as written on the mural in Sleeping Lion’s studio.

On occasion, lightning round questions will be thrown in for outside-the-box fun.

Also, everyone gets a mug.
