Mental Hygiene Podcast #4 - Political Music w/ M. Lockwood Porter

What is the role of music in the political discussion? What defines a protest tune? What makes for an effective political song?

These are the main points of discussion on this episode of MHP. M. Lockwood Porter joins me in the studio to talk about his new album and our influences in the world of political music. His new album "How to Dream Again" takes on the topic of what happened to the American Dream? 

We make a list of our top seven political songs and discuss some of the tools that songwriters have used in the past to sneak information into the collective consciousness with well crafted songs that hold deeper meanings.
