RiYL Podcast - Episode 533: Susie Ulrey (of Pohgoh)

We postpone the interview a few days, as there’s a hurricane bearing down on Florida. Tampa staved off the worst of it, but it’s another one of those things – counting yourself lucky that you made it through another one okay. In addition to managing the occasional natural disaster, Pohgoh’s existence has been a series of ups and down. The group spent the better part of two decades in a kind of quantum state – together, but also not really – until it properly reunited in 2016. This year’s du und ich is the group’s second LP in this latest go-round. It’s a deeply personal record, setting Susie Ulrey’s life with Multiple Sclerosis against an indie-pop backdrop.
