Natalia Lafourcade is a force. As you’ll hear when she sings during our conversation today she has a gorgeous voice. But she’s also a deft songwriter who’s able to weave together traditions that feel both modern and old at once.

And she’s also a beautiful interpreter of song—take for instance the phenomenon that was the song “Remember Me” from Pixar’s film Coco. Or take the many instances where she’s recorded some of the classic songs from across Latin America—performing on songs by greats like Violetta Parra from Chile and Agustín Lara from Natalia’s home state of Veracruz, Mexico. After spending the last seven years interpreting those masters, Natlia’s released De Todas Las Flores, her first album of originals since 2015.

On today's episode Justin Richmond talks to Natalia Lafourcade about the evolution of her artistry over the last 25 years. She recalls the time a hummingbird inspired her to move past a creative rut, and how the logistical challenges of recording her latest album to tape wound up creating an urgency that ultimately fueled the creative process.

explores what it means to live a good life.


We do that with the help of special guests,


like Hollywood legend Rob Reiner, Civil Rights Hero Reverend James Lawson, and


Pushkin's very own Malcolm Gladwell.


To that note, here's a glimpse into my conversation with Malcolm.


My mother understood that I was going to seek to rebel as a teenager.


So she, at one point when she saw that I wasn't that interested in going to school, she would write


notes. Malcolm is sick today in


Canada's in school and leave the date blank and just give me a bunch of them.




If you'd like to hear more of my fascinating conversation with the Malcolm,
