205. Pegi Young on Otis, Janis, Joni, JJ Cale, Clapton, the Dead and her new album RAW  

Singer-songwriter Pegi Young's new album 'Raw' was inspired by her recent divorce, but her musical identity has been developing for decades, taking inspiration from her heroes, peers and people who have become friends. We talk about her biggest influences, from Otis Redding to Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell to Billie Holliday, Paul McCartney to Bonnie Raitt, JJ Cale to the Grateful Dead, Laura Nyro to Eric Clapton.

Plus, how curating the annual Bridge School Benefits has helped her discover new artists, how the trauma of her divorce left her temporarily unable to play guitar and why she hopes her new music will resonate with audiences who don't share her life experiences.

134: How to Tap Into Your OWN ENERGY and HEALING POWER with Jessica Ortner  

Have you ever felt off? You know, just struggling with nothing in particular, but never knowing what’s wrong with you?

Can you see my hand raised high above my head?! We’ve all been there!

My conversation with Jessica Ortner totally made sense of this feeling by framing it in a different way. When we feel nervous or anxious, most times it’s not just in our heads – we experience it in our whole body. When you have a stressful thought, she emphasizes the importance of talking through these feelings (you don’t have to be Suzy Sunshine all the time) and acknowledging them through tapping. After all, when your body feels more relaxed, you’re able to take control again.

So what is this tapping thing anyway? Not to be confused with tap dancing, tapping is a technique that uses your fingertips to tap the body’s acupressure points and literally “tap into” your body’s own energy and healing power. Say what?

Jessica also questioned the effectiveness of this practice. Years ago, while suffering from what was a seemingly endless cold, her brother introduced her to tapping. Where did he learn about it? The Internet. Oh boy. How much truth could there be to this? But here’s the thing – it was no joke and it actually helped her. A bit further down the road, it also helped her realize that her issues with her body weight were more deeply rooted. It wasn’t just physical. It wasn’t about a number. It was emotional.

“We have to release that stress and create a better relationship with ourselves.”

So what better way to understand this process than by experiencing it firsthand. I was selfishly glad for the timing of this podcast so I could use it for my own personal benefit (in addition to yours). ;-) During this podcast, Jessica took me through a complete tapping sequence so we could work through my anxiety and fear around my upcoming public speaking engagement (TEDTalk). I would love for you to do the sequence and insert the issue that is currently challenging you. Jessica calls it “borrowing benefits,” because you can still make a connection just by the human experience. (Love that!) Here Are the Steps/Points:

Point 1: Start with your Set-Up Statement (Even though I… I accept myself and how I feel.) Now, start tapping on the side of your hand, underneath the pinkie (the karate chop point). It doesn’t matter which side you tap on. Point 2: Move to the start of your eyebrow, right on the bone. Point 3: Follow the brow bone to the outside and tap the side of your eye bone. Point 4: Underneath the eye. Point 5: Underneath the nose. Point 6: Chin (right under your mouth) Point 7: Collarbone (Jessica uses her whole hand here) Point 8: Underneath arm (bra strap area on women) Point 9: Top of the head.

During the tapping process, Jessica stresses that the words aren’t super important, it’s the act of speaking your feelings aloud. You’re not going to do anything “wrong.”

“It’s not about the perfect word, it’s about staying with the emotion.”

Let me tell you, the tapping sequence took my anxiety and fear level from an 8 to a 2 or 3! Amazing, right? If you’re going through something, I encourage you to try it and see if it helps. It’s definitely worth a try to change your energy from nervousness to excitement.

“When it comes to how our body reacts there’s not that much difference between anxiety and excitement.”

I am so grateful that she helped me shift my fear into that space of excitement. And I love that tapping can apply to ANY area of your life – not just public speaking. Having gone through the experience above, how could tapping benefit you?

Megan Washington on Rufus Wainwright 'Poses', being out of your era, cattiness and Blacula (REPOST)  

Reposting one of my favorite episodes from the archive - my chat with sly singer-songwriter Megan Washington.

On a particularly spirited episode of “My Favorite Album” this week, 2-time ARIA winner, possible Eurovision contender and loose unit Megan Washington joins host Jeremy Dylan for a rave on Rufus Wainwright’s 2001 sophomore album “Poses”.

They break down classic track “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk” and along the way talk about the musically abusive relationships within the Wainwright family, the uncanny parallels between “Poses” and Meg’s new album “There There”, feeling old fashioned in contemporary music, the debauchery and cattiness of Rufus’s lyrics, why time slows down on stage and why performing at Triple J’s “Beat the Drum” has inspired Meg to make a disco album - plus Blacula!

My Favorite Album is a podcast unpacking the great works of pop music. Each episode features a different songwriter or musician discussing their favorite album of all time - their history with it, the making of the album, individual songs and the album’s influence on their own music.

Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker and music industry exec from Sydney, Australia. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the feature film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins, in addition to many commercials and music videos.

Clive James, Netflix and Cannes, documentary maker Simon Chinn, Damien Hirst in Venice  

When Clive James published his collection of poems Sentenced to Life in 2014, it was expected to be his last because he has terminal leukaemia. Now, three years later, he's publishing a new collection with the apt title of Injury Time. In his sunlit, book-lined studio, James talks to John Wilson about his urgent impulse to write, as he faces death, his meticulously crafted poems about life. Netflix's film Okja was booed at the Cannes Film Festival today as the row over Netflix's place at the festival continues. For the first time, two Netflix films are competing for the Palme d'Or this year. The critic Jason Solomons reports from Cannes on the controversy, and is joined by Simon Chinn, Oscar-winning producer of documentaries Man on Wire and Searching for Sugar Man, whose latest film LA 92 was funded by TV and on-demand channel National Geographic. Early last month Damien Hirst revealed his latest ambitious work Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable at two large venues in Venice. The show's Italian curator Elena Geuna, who has worked with Damien on the project for the last five years, discusses the secrecy surrounding the decade-long planning of the exhibition. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Rachel Simpson.
