Nate Wilcox is host of “Let It Roll,” a podcast with a series of in-depth interviews with music writers. Nate and his collaborators are assembling a history of popular music in America with a focus on the social, technological and business forces that drive the culture. Rock journalist Ed Ward’s History of Rock and Roll inspired the podcast, and Ed has been a regular guest and key collaborator. The second volume of the History was published recently, and Nate and Ed are just wrapping up a series of discussions inspired by that volume, which covers the late 60s and early 70s. In this discussion, we talk about the past, present and future state of rock and roll.
