Spoon first formed in 1993, when Britt Daniel met Jim Eno in a recording studio in a basement at UT Austin. Over 20 years later, Spoon has released 9 albums including their most recent record "Hot Thoughts". Britt and Jim sit down with host Hrishikesh Hirway to take us on a tour of Austin, Texas. They share stories about their arrival in town, venues old and new, their home studio, and their motel hideaway for writing music.
