Season 4 Episode 5 | Mark Isham never stops learning something new

In another loaded double-guest episode, Kenny and Robert begin the show chatting with mega-talent Isobel Waller-Bridge, composer of Emma (2020), Fleabag, Vita & Virginia and more! Isobel shares stories of early collaborations writing songs with her sister Phoebe, why she likes to sneak "easter egg" sounds and lyrics into her scores and why she loves to tackle musical projects outside of her wheelhouse.
