Salima Hamarani and Robynn Takayama met with singer/songwriter Thao Nguyen who plays with the Get Down Stay Down while bringing her politics (particularly around prisoner rights) into her song lyrics.

They started the interview with Robynn recalling a friend who talked with Thao at a raucous music festival. With several beers under their belts, he heard a bit of a country twinge. So the APEXers asked her where is she from and what her upbringing was like.
