Chuck Ragan is a mensch. Punk legend. Folk genius. Fishing guide. Author. Purveyor of hot sauce. Ragan is the stuff of legend. We caught up at the Sing Out Loud Festival in St. Augustine Amphitheatre right after Chuck poured his heart out to an eager crowd. After seemingly leaving it all on stage, Chuck still gave us a solid half hour of insight into his creative process.
Check out the Spotify playlist that accompanies this episode featuring music from Chuck and some things I've been getting down on recently, including the excellent solo record from Heartless Bastards frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom.
