What makes a great cover song? Is it playing every note as close to the original as possible? Or does a great cover require a reimagining of the source material? Whatever your feeling is, this episode will dig deep into some of our favorite covers and unearth what makes a great cover so special.

In this episode, Carter sits down with frequent co-host and co-producer Mahea Lee and their co-worker and Flypaper editor-in-chief, Jeremy Young to listen to and break down some of their favorite covers!
