This week in another attempt to dig myself our of the emotional mire that is extended lockdown, I decided to talk and tell stories about something I love very much. The album 'The Calling' by The Hilltop Hoods was released in 2003. I first heard it in the summer of 2003/04 when I was 12 years old, at the Australian Scouts Jamboree, and it changed everything for me. After listening again this week from the perspective of someone who - like the Hoods when they recorded The Calling - has been chasing after an artistic dream for more than ten years, I felt a new appreciation for the music. I talked about that, and did a bit of a deep dive on one of the guest verse rappers from 'The Certificate'. Lots of fun!
