247. Trainwreck author Sady Doyle on Tori Amos 'Boys for Pele' (1996)

Sady Doyle is the author of "Trainwreck: The Women We Love to Hate, Mock, and Fear . . . and Why". She joins me on the podcast for a deep dive celebration of the great Tori Amos and her classic album 'Boys for Pele'. We get into it all - gendered slagging off of Tori's music, why her live shows were the original safe space for traumatised outsiders, the conceptual underpinnings of the album, Sady's cameo on one of Tori's live albums, Tori's unheralded influence in modern pop music and much much more. Plus we recap the Twitter furor ignited by a seemingly innocent tweet from Sady about REM. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it's influenced them. Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins.
