Song Exploder

iTunes description: "A podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made."

Why it's on the list: In each episode, Hrishikesh Hirway picks a great piece of music, isolates its separate sounds and plays them alongside the musicians' commentary, revealing artistic secrets along the way. The best moments of this podcast involve discovering something new in a song you've heard countless times before. It happens a lot.
