0:00 -:--
In this installment of Slate’s podcast about work, host Adam Davidson of NPR’s Planet Money and the New York Times Magazine talks with singer-songwriter Sarah Quintana about her life on the New Orleans music scene. Quintana discusses growing up amid the city’s deep and wide musical heritage, her evolution away from jazz favorites into original compositions, and her Kickstarter campaign (which you should really check out). And in a Slate Plus extra, Sarah talks about American Idol. If you’re not a member, enjoy bonus segments and interview transcripts from Working, plus other great podcast exclusives.
