In this episode, I have the immense honor of interviewing Dave Porter, the composer for the best show on television, Breaking Bad. We talk about everything from his musical influences as a kid (Miami Vice) to couch surfing in New York and working for Phillip Glass. Dave’s an amazingly talented guy and I hope you enjoy this podcast!
