Soul Sisters Podcast: Paula Cole is Okay With '90s Nostalgia (And Has a Fair Amount Herself)

Soul Sisters Podcast: Paula Cole

On the 20th anniversary of Lilith Fair and the album that propelled her to pop stardom with hits like "I Don't Want to Wait" and "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone," Paula Cole joins Jessie Katz and Darah Golub on Soul Sisters to tell us how touring with other powerhouse women stars of the '90s "felt like what Woodstock probably felt like," how she fought against "patriarchal dinosaur" executives to make her way in the music industry, and why she approves of the younger generations' comfort with the other "F word": feminism.

"I love the millennials for that - that they just have busted open that word," she says. "What's the alternative? A masochist?"

Listen to the full episode with Cole, who has a new album titled Ballads out August 11, and be sure to subscribe to the Soul Sisters iTunes channel for all upcoming episodes!
