Speedy Ortiz frontperson Sadie Dupuis is someone who cares deeply. About music, about people, about the world we're living in. You can hear it in her songwriting, characterized by dense lyrics and heavy guitars, and you can see it in her actions as a union organizer and advocate for musicians.

In this session, Dupuis talks about all of that. She also talks about the new Speedy Ortiz album, Rabbit Rabbit, which comes out Friday. It's the Philadelphia band's fourth album, and Sadie gets into some of her inspirations, like color-related writing prompts and her own childhood memories.
