Nick Cave 20,000 days on earth

After a brief detour from the usual programming with a special Father’s Day episode, Andy Keatts and David Lizerbram are back to regular Rock Docs programming this week. No muppets on this episode, just an hour and a half with legendary artist Nick Cave and the film 20,000 Days on Earth, directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.

Released in 2014, the film is a semi-fictionalized day in the life of Nick Cave, and leads to the greater question of whether or not this even technically counts as a Rock Doc at all. Controversy! In the film, Cave records some music, sees his therapist, spends some time with his friends—including Warren Ellis, Kylie Minogue and Ray Winstone—as well as delivering monologues, looking badass. You know, the usual, at least when you’re Nick Cave.

Joining your Rock Docs hosts is special guest Adam Scott Glasspool, musician and host of the “What Is Music?” podcast on Radiohead. Hear some riffs on Cave and the existential question of what truly is a rock doc in the episode below.

20,000 Days on Earth is streaming on most major platforms, including Amazon Prime, Hulu, Tubi, Peacock and The Roku Channel.
