From playing alongside Glenn Branca in seminal band Theoretical Girls to producing the first Sonic Youth album, Wharton Tiers has his fingerprints all over the late-70s/early-80s New York scene. Add to that his work with A Band and Glorious Strangers, and Tiers' discography provides the perfect entry point to the visceral world that is no wave. 

Since then, Tiers has also gone on to produce such beloved and acclaimed albums as Dinosaur Jr.'s "You're Living All Over Me" and Helmet's "Strap It On." Today, Wharton Tiers remains active with the Wharton Tiers Ensemble, Superduperlooper, his solo piano work, and the brand new Wharton's Expanding Jazz band.

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
