3 Chords & the Truth: The defining lie?

What if everything you were supposed to believe about yourself -- and where you are from -- was a lie?

That's the gist of our centerpiece musical exploration on this week's 3 Chords & the Truth.

What if the glorious "heritage" you were taught to take pride in was, instead, a more compelling case for intense shame?

WHAT DO YOU MAKE of that? If you -- if your region and culture -- have been held captive by a defining historical lie, how do you make peace with the present and move on to the future?

If you have any good answers, contact me at

Intrigued? You should be. It's a hell of a question, and we meditate upon it through some great -- and diverse -- music this week.

Of course, in addition to the seriousness, we have a lot of fun, too. That's because the Big Show is the place where you never know what's going to be thrown at you next. Every song an adventure, I say.

And you'll be saying that, too.

It's 3 Chords & the Truth, and you can listen right now, right here.

Be there. Aloha.

UPDATE: You did know that the show is available on iTunes, right? Just go to podcasts and search for 3 Chords & the Truth. It's as simple as that, and you can become a subscriber.
