Episode 23: Bob Weir
This week Bob welcomes back Bob Costa of the Washington Post, and the two of them speak with the legendary Bob Weir, founder and guitarist of the Grateful Dead and many other musical endeavors across five decades.
In this episode Bob Weir explains what he misses most about being on the road performing, and how he and his bandmates are safely rehearsing to prepare for an eventual return. He also shares what the state of California means to him and whether he'd consider running for local office, as people have been asking him for years. Finally, the Bobs discuss the political relevance today of some old Grateful Dead tunes, and which characters from those songs they think about during these challenging times in America.
