Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney, Filthy Friends, Heavens to Betsy)

Corin Tucker is best known for her role as singer, songwriter and guitarist for the band Sleater-Kinney. She’s also made albums under her own name and has collaborated with members of REM on a new project called “Filthy Friends.” She’s also the mother to two children, Marshall and Glory. In this episode we discuss the early days of the riot grrrl scene in Olympia, being mentored by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, balancing responsibilities with a creative husband and how motherhood has deepened Corin’s work. I spoke to Corin in Portland, OR in October of 2017.
