Jimmy Eat World’s Jim Adkins gets Tegan Quin, Ben Gibbard, more for new podcast series

The podcast premieres on August 6

Jimmy Eat World’s Jim Adkins is launching a new podcast series called Pass Through Frequencies, which revolves around the craft of songwriting.

In each episode, Adkins will be chatting with fellow artists, and the debut episode that premieres on August 6th features Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. Future segments will also feature Ben Gibbard, Tegan Quin, Steve Aoki, Nate Ruess, Chris Carrabba, and David Bazan.

“When I’m working on a song, it almost feels like I am channeling something,” Adkins explains of the inspiration behind the series. “It’s like I am holding the rudder with only a vague clue who might be paddling. I have to find a balanced mindset of being wholly present… and not ‘there’ at all.”
