Obsession: Coverville Covers All

When I used to check into an office daily, I would prepare myself the night before by browsing through the podcast library, hoping to discover a new, untapped gem that would help me get through another day. Recently, I reconnected with a long-lost friend (a gem, in her own right), who reminded me of one of these long-lost music finds: Coverville.

Brian Ibbott’s brainchild thematically weaves the approximately-semiweekly shows together. From both new and established artists, catch fresh versions of your old favorites—covers from as diverse as The Cure to Roy Orbison or maybe an entire podcast dedicated to songs performed in a different language from the original. Either way, Coverville covers it all.

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts. Her obsession with finding the new, innovative, and quirky is the impetus behind this site. Leah lives with her two sons and husband in North San Diego County.
