Russell Mark Returns (Swing and a Miss)

One last non-Petty episode before we being digging into Wildflowers! This time, Russell Mark, from The Nextdoors is back to talk about their new single “Swing and a Miss”. We talk about perfection in art and whether it’s worth striving for, we nerd out over specific production choices and songwriting form, and of course, we talk about Gary Carter, and America’s pastime.It was a lot of fun chatting to Russell again and I hope you enjoy our chat as much as we did!

A last very special thanks to Paul Zollo. Without his book, “Conversations with Tom Petty”, this podcast wouldn’t be nearly as much fun to research. And further thanks to Warren Zanes for his outstanding book “Petty, the Biography”.
