Podcast: The Deeper Meaning of "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People ft. Neal AKA "Merlin"

Podcast: The Deeper Meaning of "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People ft. Neal AKA "Merlin"

Today, my guest and I are talking about "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People. It's a fantastic song, and I think you're going to enjoy going deeper behind the meaning of these lyrics. The song is about a school shooter, but it's not glorifying it. Foster the People is trying to start a conversation about who school shooters are. 

My guest is Neal aka Merlin, and he's a great guy. We both researched this song, and now we're getting deeper into the meaning!
