Cole Cuchna has a podcast to listen to with his Spotify Dissect series.
Spotify’s Dissect is no usual music podcast and Cole Cuchna is no ordinary host. On Dissect Cole helps his listeners learn more about the classic albums they love to listen to and the artists who made them. He covers one classic album per season and one classic song per episode.
The Sacramento, California native has achieved a lot in his podcasting career in such a short amount of time. In an interview with Billboard Magazine Cuchna described himself as an overachiever in school stating “I was the guy that got an assignment six months ahead of the due date and started on the first day”–and after listening to his extremely well researched show you will wholeheartedly believe him.
Before he took over the podcast game though Cole was a struggling musician in Sacramento. In our episode of OPP with Corey Cambridge he describes his love for music as a youth, “As soon as I started playing guitar at 13 I knew instantly that I wanted to do that with the rest of my life. That was every kid’s dream but I was a little more driven to make that a reality.”
His career changed course though with the birth of his first born child. He states “When she was a baby she would eat and sleep all day so I would listen to podcasts, especially Serial. My love for podcasting came from that time”
Dissect debuted in the Spring of 2018 with the breakdown of Kendrick Lamar’s masterpiece “To Pimp A Butterfly and instantly had music lovers hooked. He’s come a long way from his humble start. Now in his eighth season Cole has brought to life such albums like Beyonce’s Lemonade, Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN, Kanye West’s My Dark Twisted Fantasy, and Frank Ocean’s Blonde and more.
This is what I know for sure. If you love music it is impossible to walk away after listening to Dissect not being a bigger fan of your favorite artists and album but you’ll also walk away a big fan of one of music’s top podcasts hosts, Mr. Cole Cuchna.
