From Rapping, To Writing, To Podcasting, Dessa’s Resume Is Getting Longer (Rebroadcast)

Dessa has been releasing a new single on the 15th of every month.
Dessa has been releasing a new single on the 15th of every month.

The pandemic has meant a major touring hiatus for musical artists. But that hasn’t stopped Dessa from making new music.

In January, she announced a single series called “Ides,” where she releases a new song on the 15th of every month. There’s even one called “Terry Gross.”

From MPR News:

She’s also the host of a new BBC podcast called “Deeply Human.” Oh, and did we mention she has a forthcoming radio drama?

We talk with Dessa about keeping busy over the last year.
