Elliott Smith Podcast Premieres Today


To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Elliott Smith’s seminal album Either/Or, and the upcoming release of Either/Or: Expanded Edition, The Guestlist and Kill Rock Stars have partnered to create Say Yes: An Elliott Smith Podcast. The six-episode miniseries will feature stories, memories, and conversations about Smith and Either/Or with folks including Gus Van Sant, who talks about using Elliott’s music in “Good Will Hunting,” Ben Gibbard, who laments never meeting Smith, and Sadie Dupuis, who reveals how his music provided the backdrop for a very intimate moment. The first episode of Say Yes premieres today, and new episodes will premiere each Friday leading up to and including the release date for Either/Or: Expanded Edition on March 10, 2017. You can listen to Say Yes here.
