Songwriter's Toolbox Podcast
Want to learn what makes great songs great?
In each podcast of the Songwriter's Toolbox, I highlight a professional songwriting tool. but you don't have to know music theory - the show is meant to be accessible to everyone.
Music lovers love it because they can hear more of what's going on in songs. Songwriters love it because they learn practical tools to improve their own songwriting.
The Songwriter's Toolbox is where I keep the tools that I use in my songwriting and which I first shared in my former role as the Song Analyst on the national weekly radio program Art of the Song - Creativity Radio. It's also the title of my forthcoming book!

Pollan is an adviser to "Pollen Nation" and author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "The Botany of Desire".
