Talking Lion

Talking Lion is a weekly artist-to-artist interview podcast hosted by Nate Flaks & Noah Longworth McGuire of Sleeping Lion. As artists/songwriters/producers, they have worked with many incredible rising artists since starting Sleeping Lion. Whether at sessions, parties, or over cups of coffee, they’ve had countless conversations with artists in the middle of their musical journeys.
