Music Made Us

Music Made Us takes listeners on an 8-stop journey across the United States, exploring how music’s influence helped shape and build the unique character of each locale. Hosted by Wax Poetics Editor Andrew “Monk-One” Mason, each episode focuses on a different city, with a local artist or DJ acting as our guide, taking listeners through what the city’s musical history means to them, how it influenced their life and career, and ultimately how music helped shape the qualities of the city itself. In each episode you’ll hear personal stories from the artists, plus their hand-selected music chosen to give you an insider’s view of the city's sounds.
