SET BREAK: Mapping the Grateful Genome

Welcome to set break. This “unofficial” episode of Dead to Me is a bit different than our usual presentation. Casey, Eduardo, and Kevin sit down together to riff on the Dead’s less-than-obvious influences on other acts across the decades. Mapping the Grateful Genome takes a deeper dive into some of the music we’ve already discussed, while introducing other tracks for your consideration. To sweeten the deal, we’ve launched the official Dead to Me playlist, which you can find at our website and on Spotify. We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming with the next episode—consider this a heady appetizer before the main course.

ABOUT Dead To Me

A cross-cultural journey through the land of the Dead
Dead to Me is a podcast about the Grateful Dead in the same way that Friday Night Lights is a show about football. Hosts Casey Rae and Eduardo Nunes explore a profound array of cultural intersections and how the Dead’s legacy ripples through our contemporary reality in fascinating and often unexpected ways.

Produced in partnership with Chunky Glasses Media, Dead to Me is lovingly crafted to appeal to Heads and non-Heads alike. Through entertaining interviews and compelling segments—all tied to specific themes—Casey and Ed examine a range of social, cultural, political, spiritual and pharmacological phenomena alongside special guests who offer unique insights into the band and the American experience writ large.

Whether you’re a (tie) dyed-in-the-wool Head, or merely Dead-curious, Dead to Me is your venue for captivating conversations about music, culture, and so much more. It’s never too late to get on the bus.
