How Long

2 years ago ep. 391 feat. Ben Gibbard 01:10:12

Ben Gibbard is a musician best known for fronting Death Cab For Cutie and The Postal Service. He lives in Seattle, but we spoke with him from a hotel in Los Angeles about Federer retiring, Timothée's Vogue cover, taking a look at the man in the mirror, how to be sober when your chick likes wine, some common traits of ultramarathon runners, every musician needs a side hustle, you have to give it to jam bands, opening for Neil Young but not the Stones, the post-divorce haze, Death Cab is huge in the Philippines, some tough sync talk, back when you could make money selling records, his love affair with Teenage Fanclub, and some of his favorite LA haunts from when he lived there.
