Fellow Paul Westerberg super fan, and creative director at the Mighty Roar agency in Atlanta, GA, Christian Durrett joins the podcast to talk about the 2006 animated film Open Season, which Paul Westerberg wrote 8 songs for, and how that started rumors of a possible Replacements reunion until Westerberg ended up injuring himself in his basement months after the soundtrack was released. We talk about Westerberg's star-crossed career and the pure bliss of The Replacements reunion in 2013.

Ryan has a degree in Film Studies, and he’s a musician. So, Soundtrack Your Life is the perfect intersection of his two main passions. Plus, he’s an avid music fan—hunting down rare songs from his favorite bands has familiarized him with many obscure soundtracks over the years.
