The BGS Podcast Network is so proud to bring you Season 2 of Harmonics with Beth Behrs – a podcast exploring the unexpected ways that music and creativity can lead to wellness and healing.
Brought to you by BLUblox: blue light blocking glasses, backed by science.
All week long, I pop in my ear buds and listen to music or podcasts at work. I came across this one earlier last month, and I finally got the time to catch  up on this one. I listened to the Margo Price episode as well as the Fionna Prine one and the one with Courtney Marie Andrews.

There is no music involved here, just interviews with these people. However anytime I find something like this, with so much talking, it is a staple opportunity to learn all kinds of information.

If you are someone like me, finding anything that is a wealth of information is a goldmine! Just trust me on this one .

We are so thrilled to premiere this first episode of Harmonics’ Americana April series. We recently had the privilege of speaking with Fiona Prine, President of Nashville’s Oh Boy Records, and wife and former manager of the late great songwriter John Prine.

It’s difficult to put Fiona into words – as a well-respected figure in the Nashville community, she’s a role model in the music business, as an activist, in fostering community, and in her loving spirit. The way she’s brought light to those around her throughout a year of her own unimaginable grief is beyond inspiring. And amongst this grief, she has still been able to beautifully keep the spirit of John’s incredible legacy alive a year after his passing.

Fiona and Beth talk about John’s recent posthumous Grammy wins (and Fiona’s experience accepting the award on his behalf) as well as the two’s love story, mental health and growing up in Ireland, her work with non-profit Thistle Farms, and so much more.

Songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews has just released Old Monarch, a beautiful collection of poetry, and her very first of its kind. Beth’s own deep love of poetry makes for a perfect pair in this episode.

Harmonics’ Americana April is brought to you by BLUblox.
“During this pandemic, my anxiety has been at an all time high, especially with so much time spent on screens. But I discovered the most amazing solution: these incredible blue light blocking glasses called BLUblox.

Since wearing them, I have noticed a massive difference not only in the quality of my sleep, but also in the reduction of my daytime anxiety. There’s a lack of science behind a lot of the blue light blocking glasses you can find online – they’re these mass-produced products without any understanding about how light actually impacts health. One of the things I love about BLUblox is how much research they’ve done, and how their products are directly based on their findings.

BLUblox also gives back: working in partnership with Restoring Vision for their buy one gift one campaign, for each pair of glasses purchased, they donate a pair of reading glasses to someone in need.
