What Now with Simo is a freeform, wide-ranging podcast by writer and composer Simo Sakari Aaltonen on any topics foremost on the host’s mind at the time of recording. The seasons are also collected in book form. Some favourite topics include creativity and all the arts — music, films, screenplays, fiction, poetry, comics, games, comedy, and everything in between. Messages from listeners welcomed for possible inclusion in an episode. Note that sending a recording for inclusion in an episode of this podcast does indeed implicitly give me permission to do so.
The episodes are available in many places, including here on the hosting site, on the podcast’s own YouTube channel here, below on this page in the embedded player, and on Spotify, Amazon, Google Podcasts, and Apple Podcasts.
The music playlists below are companion playlists to go with the podcast featuring nothing but great music. New items will keep being added to them. Spotify links to the three playlists so far: 1952–1955, 1956–1959, and 1960–1964.
