We are back with Hip Hop/NerdSwag artist Manus! Manus and I first met a long time ago in Burlington VT, so it was awesome to catch up and see where we’ve been. We got to talking about his past, moving, when he started rapping and how all that lead him to the Nectar’s stage and beyond. We’ll hear some old tracks of his from the Burlington days and then some of the new bangers he is working on. Look out for his song “DSGD” now on Spotify. I had a great time with Manus, chilling and talking Hip Hop, comics and all the nerdy delights around his place. So enjoy and shout out to A-Dog for the opening few tracks! 802!!

Jim Mahfood is one of comics most gonzo voices and it’s amazing to have him back on the show almost 4 years to the day after our first chat. His new comic Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks from Image comics will be released May 17th in all Comic Stores, so you gotta check it out. This ep we delve deep into what brought Jim back to his creation after 20+ years and about music and it’s effect on life. We’ll also wax intellectual about out youths, TMNT (obviously) the importance of Brick and Mortar and how cool it would be to chill with the Grrl Scouts in VR. Also, this super heady edition was taped on 4/20 so you know it gets to the deepness right quick. Featuring killer music choices by Mahfood and shout outs to the Beat Bee Sessions and his partner Jane Dope. So come with me into the Bee Hive!!!

#52 with Nick Wevurski

Open Mic night out on the town with Nick Wevurski. This week we follow up and coming comedian Nick Wevurski to his 23rd open mic. We’ll find out what goes into his set, what it takes to take that first step and then we’ll go hear his set and chat about it. Pretty fascinating night for me to see what it takes to take your jokes from the house to the stage. With a soundtrack of Burlington Vt Metal bands!

#49 at San Diego Comic Con

We were somewhere around San Diego on the edge of the ocean when the comics began to take hold. This week we are back with our Gonzo round-up of the 2016 San Diego Comic Con. I was lucky enough to attend this year’s con and work the Greg Horn Art booth. With my handy mic I was able to traverse the convention floor and collect some amazing interviews from some of comic’s most interesting and legendary names. Dave McKean, Stan Sakai and Geof Darrow to name a few. The Gonzo began to take hold as I also had my mic on during some late knight adventures with the one and only Truce II Head Rush. Then on Saturday the adventure of Comic Con>Phish lead to some amazing realizations and a chance meeting with the weekends white whale. Listen in for more Gonzo/Comic goodness!

#48 with Jamel Johnson

We are back with Jamel Johnson, comedian and former co-host of my previous podcast “Podcast Classics.” It’s a pleasure to have Jamel on the show and to dive back into the sea of tapes we have amassed since our last meeting. Did you know that podcasting is over 100 years old? Did you know that Jamel’s and my families have been podcasting together for most of those 100? Well it’s true, all of it. In this episode we found a tape of an old podcast classic. On that episode they found a tape of a classic podcast and on that episode they found a classic commercial. Since it’s “inception” podcasting has been in our blood. Jamel and I not only had a great time reminiscing about our family histories but we also learned something about the history of Washington/Baltimore sports. Pretty cool. Check it out.

#47 with Dave Crosland

This week we are back, live in the studio with Dave “King Gum” Crosland. Dave was kind enough to have me over to his studio where I got to revel in the artistry throughout the interview. We got to talk about his artistic start with concert posters, his travels, some of the strange and unusual projects he’s pitched for and much more. Dave also hand picked (how else do you pick stuff) all the music for this episode (mostly) and chose songs that played pivotal roles in crucial times in his life, ups, downs, slings, arrows, and gum. So sit back, relax and check out my chat with King Gum!

Dave has worked on:

Comics: Invader Zim, Puffed, Scarface: Scarred For Life, Yo Gabba Gabba, CBGB & OMFUG, Bad Ideas, Slop and more.

Album Art: Gym Class Heroes "As Cruel As School Children," Blueprint "1988," Incubus / Lollapalooza backdrop artwork

#46.2 with Fred Moore

We’re back with part 2 of the Fred Moore interview. This episode begins with the very show where Fred and I met, Sound of Urchin, Halloween 05 at Nectar’s! We then get back into the Grateful Dead and Ween, all taped by Fred himself. This episode we also get a visit from very special guest Tim Heidecker? Great Job! Also we’ll take a listen to a song taped from the Invitational at John & Peters in New Hope featuring Dean Ween, Original PFunk guitarist Michael "Kid Funkadelic" Hampton and B-ill. Fred tapes and masters these shows as well and you’ve probably seen his setlists online. So sit back and enjoy part two with Fred Moore.
