Writer/producer Jeff Lieber (Necessary Roughness, NCIS: New Orleans) joins me to explore the intersection between music and drama, and how he uses an obsession with an album to fuel his writing process. We talk about how Gregory Alan Isakov’s ‘The Weatherman’ has been the soundtrack to his current writing project, the different ways that changing technology has effected TV and music, what the Beatles have in common with the Sopranos, why he has failed multiple times to write song lyrics, the secrets to using songs in episodes of TV drama and why he sometimes envies indie musicians - and sometimes doesn’t.
