GRAMMY Museum, HowStuffWorks Launch "Required Listening" Podcast
Podcasts are having a moment. Music streaming services are having another big year.
For the first time, the two mediums will come together to tell the biggest stories in the music industry from the best, most creative musicians and singers anywhere with "Required Listening," a new podcast from HowStuffWorks and the GRAMMY Museum in partnership with the Recording Academy.
Launched on GRAMMY Sunday, Jan. 28, the first episode features a captivating conversation with GRAMMY winners Imagine Dragons. With episodes rolling out twice weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays), future guests will include P Diddy, Dan Auerbach, Jimmy Iovine, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, and Lindsey Buckingham and Christie McVie of Fleetwood Mac, among others.
The respected voice of The Recording Academy (The GRAMMYs) gives listeners exclusive access to the most amazing music artists on the planet. Each week, the program promises to “blow people's minds by providing an all-access pass to the artist inner circle.”

More than just an interview show, "Required Listening" is an inspirational look at what makes each artist tick, how they got their start, and how they got to where they are today, bringing listeners that much closer to the artist and their journey.
The interview sessions are hosted by Scott Goldman, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum at the Clive Davis Theater in Los Angeles in front of a live audience.
"Establishing a podcast is an important step in the continuing evolution of the GRAMMY Museum," says Goldman, "'Required Listening' will bring audiences everywhere inside our Clive Davis Theatre for conversation, insight and inspiration with artists from across the musical spectrum."
