Roddy Nikpour dives into Dry by PJ Harvey. She’s a grunge pioneer carrying on Kurt’s spirit through her own ongoing legacy. She was one of his close peers — so much so that Dave Grohl has invited her to fill in for Kurt to perform Nirvana songs. 

As part of Women's History Month, our next three episodes will cover some of the other women-fronted bands on Kurt's list, including The Slits, The Raincoats, and Kleenex. 

Hosts: Dusty Henry and Martin Douglas
Audio Producer: Roddy Nikpour
Podcast Manager: Isabel Khalili
Editorial Director: Larry Mizell, Jr.
