That’s How I Remember It is a podcast that examines the connection between memory and creativity. Each episode will feature a discussion between Craig Finn and one creator — a musician, author, filmmaker, etc. — about the role that memory plays in their art. These conversations will reveal the different ways each creator synthesizes their remembered life experiences to tell stories about themselves and the world we live in. This podcast is not a nostalgia trip, but rather an exciting conversation about storytelling, process, and the desire to create art that reflects the world the artist has experienced. That’s How I Remember It is co-produced and distributed by Talkhouse.

Episode Date
Fred Armisen
Fred Armisen is this week’s guest on That’s How I Remember It. Fred has accomplished a ton in comedy, TV, and film as a cast member of SNL and creator of shows like Portlandia, Los Espookys, and more. But the story seems to start back when he was the drummer in the band Trenchmouth. We talked here about touring in the '90s, and how that banked a world of memories that he mined to help create his amazing TV series Portlandia. We also spoke about sense memories, early MTV, Tito Puente, the period of his life between Trenchmouth and joining the cast of SNL, and discovering new things about his family history as an adult. Then we tried to figure out why the audience nervously laughs at whatever a lead singer says at a rock show. Such a joy to spend this time with Fred. Please listen and subscribe, and stay tuned for more amazing guests on That’s How I Remember It.

Brian Koppelman (Billions)
On the second episode of That’s How I Remember It, I talked with Brian Koppelman. Alongside his partner David Levien, Brian has created the television shows Billions and Super Pumped, as well as written movies like Rounders, Ocean’s Thirteen, Solitary Man, and more. We talked about his great memory for dialogue, the films that made him feel like he could be a writer, the way the language in poker rooms inspired his writing, how misheard lyrics can persevere, albums we both listened to on the day they came out, his take on legacy, and much much more. A huge thanks to Brian for joining me and being so great at this. Look for more episodes of That’s How I Remember It in the coming weeks, and don’t forget to subscribe.

Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers)
For the first episode of That’s How I Remember It, I spoke to Patterson Hood, one of my all-time favorite songwriters. Patterson’s work with the Drive-By Truckers has examined life in the Southern USA and beyond, lyrically tearing down old monuments while constructing new ones to more worthy recipients. We talked about turning memories into mythology, honoring deceased friends, and how his classic song "18 Wheels of Love" might be built on a shaky foundation. We also reminisce a bit on the Drive-By Truckers/The Hold Steady “Rock and Roll Means Well” Tour from 2008. Huge thanks to Patterson for being my first guest. I’ll be talking to Brian Koppelman, Fred Armisen, and other great guests in weeks to come, so please subscribe and keep listening to That’s How I Remember It.
