Welcome to Sign on the Window, a weekly podcast from Daniel and Kelly on Bob Dylan. This isn’t a podcast on nostalgia or some jog around historical tombs, this is an attempt to listen (in this case) to a piece of art, let it into our lives for a week, and meet back together to talk about it. Because no art is made in a vacuum, we explore Dylan and his era and his life as well as our era and our lives. Oh, we have lots of fun too!

Because life is a simple twist of fate, we let the random gods decide which direction we will head in, by way of our extensive (if not exhaustive) list, and talk about it in depth – from initial reactions and historical context to musicality and lyrical verbosity – while talking about the life that each of us are leading. Our latest episodes are below:

SIGN ON THE WINDOW (Mondays)

MIXED UP CONFUSION (Thursdays)
