Ep 87: Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen is The Great Unifier – an artist who brings people of all varieties and music tastes together under a celebration of pop music. For this episode of the podcast, during a recent stop-off in London, the Canadian songwriter spoke to Greg Cochrane about being two decades ahead of the curve writing protest songs about the climate crisis, the strange stuff people gift her while she's on stage (a CD demo?!) and her ambition to write a musical theatre production. Plus, some discussion about her anti-Valentines Day anthem 'Let's Be Friends', the enduring praise for her 2015 album 'Emotion' and watching festival crowds mosh to her songs.
