The Art of Process with Aimee Mann and Ted Leo is the newest artistic collaboration from legendary singer-songwriters Aimee Mann and Ted Leo. Every other week, Aimee and Ted talk to friends across the creative spectrum to find out how they work. And sure, they're friends with a lot of musicians, but weirdly not as many as you'd expect. So you'll hear from comedians, directors, novelists, show creators - ok, yes, some musicians - writers, producers and more, as they discuss the process of tur ...

Ep. 16 - Open Mike Eagle “What if Somebody Knocked Down the Pyramids?” Hello, hello! This week, we sat with the great Open Mike Eagle, to talk rap, comedy, architecture, and mental health for touring musicians! I first met Mike a few years ago, when Aimee and I, along with Mike, were guests on a PAUL F. TOMPKINS show in Los Angeles, and we had such…
 
Ep. 15 - Kim Gordon “Is Art Really All Design Now?” Very happy to bring you another interview in a different kitchen - this time, the mighty Kim Gordon’s (kitchen) (and interview)!

THEN WE GET TO CHAD CLARKE - practically the ideal guest for ou…
 
Fitting that these notes come to you today from what has become a liminal space between “home” and “tour” for me. That space is, of course, “New Jersey,” and it’s fitting because it was from here (this very house, in fact) in 1987, that I wrote a letter to our guest, Ian MacKaye. Ian’s new band, Fugazi, was asking people to rethink their relationsh…
 
Ep. 12 - Jean Grae "I Need to Create the Things That are Still Unseen" It's JEAN GRAE, folks. Hip Hop artist, writer, actor, singer, thinker... puppeteer? Jean was born in South Africa, raised in New York City, and makes so so many many good good things. IN THE INTRODUCTION, Aimee and I tackle some technical issues and try to figure out what a poly…

Ep. 8 - Eric White "Usually it's the Opposite and it's Terrible" Another harsh corporate takedown by your hosts in the intro! Extreme temperatures misremebered! And artist Eric White!

WEEK TWO OF THE MAXIMUM FUN PLEDGE DRIVE! In this episode, we sat down with "Money Mark," Mark Nishita, musician, inventor, producer, etc. We touch on everything from being a middle child, to the Chinese Exclusion Act, piano rolls, and the macho/privileged side of crate digging for break beats with the Beastie Boys. A couple of things that don't ne…
 
Ep. 6 - Rhea Butcher “A Weird Flesh Skeleton (and the Maximum Fun Pledge Drive)” VERY happy to bring you A SPECIAL BONUS EPISODE in what would’ve otherwise been a dark week for us (in the sense that we wouldn’t normally be delivering a podcast because we’re on a bi-weekly schedule, because, I mean… it’s always pretty dark these days… and weeks) wit…
 
Ep. 5- Andy Kindler "And There's One Guy Still Upset With You in Stuttgart" Late again! But this is how it goes. I had an iLok/ProTools freak-out that wasn't my fault, and I lost the file with Aimee's intro and outro, and had to have her dig through her computer, find some wifi on the road, and re-send it to me (then me re-edit it), all of which WA…

On this episode of The Art of Process, we talk to one of our favorite songwriters, Dan Wilson. From his start in the Twin Cities indie scene of the early 80s to his rise as a noted "song-whisperer," working with artists ranging from Adele, to the Dixie Chicks, to Pink, and many others among and between, he's displayed an integrity and a commitment …
 
The multi-talented Rebecca Sugar is the creator and showrunner of the wildly imaginative Steven Universe on Cartoon Network. Ted, Aimee, and Rebecca discuss how the show is able to appeal to both children and adults, how to tackle a blank page, and how early love of some art (and rejection of others) influenced their careers. Oh, and also, what art…
