Thao’s Grandma Makes A Statement

When indie rockstar Thao Nguyen isn’t rocking the stage around the globe, she’s listening to public radio. So of course we had to bring her in to tell a tale about her sweet, lovely grandma--who you definitely don’t want to mess with.

Thao composed all the instrumentals in this segment specifically for this story. The other two songs are from her album, We Brave Bee Stings and All. She is currently performing at Radiolab’s live show and is working on a new album.
