Laura Jane Grace joins host Raina Douris

When the pandemic lockdown began last year, many artists were quick to start up performing live online. But it was Laura Jane Grace’s desire to get out of the virtual space – and do something real – that resulted in a new album, recorded as live as possible. She joins host Raina Douris to talk about the making of Stay Alive, and what it was like to have to suddenly return home when her band Against Me’s tour was cut short last year.
