Chris Thile

This week, we talk with musician Chris Thile, the Nickel Creek member who’s taking the reins of the iconic public radio show “A Prairie Home Companion” this weekend. We discuss what it’s like filling the shoes left by Garrison Keillor, why he thinks Radiohead would be a great fit on the show and how the weekly broadcast is like a church service. We also meet two new members of the RELEVANT team, have a special sequel to the Town Hall debate (The Reckoning!), see what Nic Cage is up to, discuss the possibility of aliens and a lot more!
