Singer/songwriter Liz Phair has found a new hobby while touring behind her latest album, Somebody's Miracle: podcasting. Phair has already posted a pair of podcasts on her official Web site. They have thus far featured live performances from Phair and her band, a reading of a short story and an audio trip around the tour bus.
"I'm all about podcasting," Phair told Billboard. "I'm totally fixated on it. It's what I'm into. We usually do a couple of live songs and then there are interviews. We're going to do it every Friday. It might be a little late here and there, but pretty much [it's up] every Friday." She continues, "We record the live shows and it's very unprofessional at this point -- like, sometimes they sound good and sometimes they sound terrible but it's really fun. It's like having my own little radio show. I think it's great. We listen to all of the [NPR] stuff on Sundays. It's kind of like having my own version."
Phair has tour dates scheduled until mid-November. She plays her hometown of Chicago tonight (10/25). Last Saturday, she sang "God Bless America" during the seventh inning of Game One of the World Series in Chicago.
