On this episode, Eric Hodge chats with Andrew Marlin from Mandolin Orange about their song 'Echo' from the album Blindfaller.

Marlin says the song is about how as communities expand, its important to keep our natural resources in mind. The idea for 'Echo' came out of a conversation he had with fellow songwriter Josh Moore.

"One day they could possibly cut down all the oaks and put up monuments of the trees."
