The American Numismatic Society (ANS) has released the sixth episode of season three of its podcast, The Planchet. In this episode, the Society has a conversation with singer-songwriter and activist Billy Bragg, discussing his interest in collecting Iron Age coinage from the United Kingdom, and more. Bragg is a well known and popular artist from the UK.
Singer-songwriter and activist Billy Bragg joins the Planchet for a wide-ranging conversation about his interest in collecting Iron Age coinage from the United Kingdom (and coins generally), early regional and tribal history from where he grew up, the personal connection to that history through holding archaeological artifacts, and bonds shared between fathers and sons. We end the conversation by talking about “roadside America” and the search for interesting and historical out-of-the-way places while on tour. Billy is touring the US from September 27–October 16, 2022 in support of his new album, The Million Things that Never Happened.American Numismatic Society
