John Congleton
Welcome to the season finale of Bottle Rocket Company podcast!!! this was so fun and and I sound foolish for even saying that!! This episode features none other than the man himself, John Congleton. John is a producer who has made some incredible albums and helped me make Sunflower. It's such an honor to be along the other names that John has worked with and I hope y'all dig this episode. We have some great southern accents all over this one so strap in for a wild ride!!

Dan Wilson
Whats up y'all back again with an ep that I love a lot  This week I had the honor of talking to Dan Wilson who helped me write my song 'Deep Sea Diver' on Sunflower. Dan is an incredible artist as a member of the band Semisonic and has written songs with artists like Adele and The Chicks. We get into a lot of goofy stuff in this episode like Grateful Dead tapestries and non-fatal dinners with aliens, but Dan also gives a ton of great advice on making stuff and staying creatively inspired. I'm so thankful to have gotten to work with him on Deep Sea Diver and so glad he let me ask him a million questions on this podcast!!

Steve Ralbovsky
Ah heck yall, this is a real good one This week I had the privilege of talking to Steve Ralbovsky, president and founder of the label that I work with called Canvasback Music. Steve's been doing a&r for a long time and we talk all about making my album Sunflower together, what types of creatives we are both drawn to, and the magical show at Lealand that brought us together all those summers back. Also, my bad y'all, my audio cuts out a couple times in this one, but you can tell what I'm saying using context clues most of the time!! Hope you enjoy it!!

We talk a lot about his process as a photographer and as a creative, but mostly we just goof around for a while. I think you'll like it!! Hudson is @hudderybuttery on IG!!!!
