If you've ever wondered about the story behind a song, how it was built and came to be, "Song Exploder" is your new best friend. Hosted by Hrishikesh Hirway (though he says far less in this show than in his other podcast "The West Wing Weekly"), "Song Exploder" is an interview based podcast, where an artist will dissect one of their songs to its barest bones, from its inspiration to how they chose to compile it.
"Song Exploder" features songs of all various genres, but on of my favourite episodes is the breakdown of the theme song to Bob's Burgers. Loren Bouchard, the creator of Bob's Burgers, is also the mastermind behind its fun theme. He breaks down how the theme has evolved over the seasons and how it has come to perfectly define the quirky comedy.
