This year Zauner released a series of career-defining projects that propelled her band to widespread critical acclaim including her New York Times best-selling memoir, Crying In H Mart, and Japanese Breakfast’s third and most ambitious album, Jubilee.
On today’s episode Broken Record producer Leah Rose talks to Michelle Zauner about her triumphant year, and exactly how big she wants her band to become. Zauner also talks about casting The Sopranos star Micheal Imperioli in her video for “Savage Good Boy,” and why she ended up going a little too far in the video’s neck-biting scene.
