Song Exploder is an American biweekly music podcast hosted and produced by Hrishikesh Hirway. The biweekly show features musicians talking about the creative process behind an individual song while "deconstructing" the song into its component parts. The songs highlighted on the program have belonged to genres ranging from pop to hardcore punk to television theme songs, film scores and video game music. Song Exploder has explored the music of several notable artists, including Björk, Iggy Pop, MGMT, The Postal Service, Wilco, Spoon, and U2.

Song Exploder began on January 1, 2014. As of July 5, 2016, 77 episodes have been released.
