Comedian and artist Ramin Nazer, author of Strippy Comics, drops by to share some beer from June Lake Brewing and chat about being creative, what inspires, and how to stay productive. A call to Matt (@badwolf408) kicks things off.
Tony Thaxton from Motion City Soundtrack stops by to share some Saison from June Lake Brewing and talk about the band’s final tour, drumming, life changes, moving on, art, creativity, and lots more. A call to Dave Thaxton (@JonPaxton) in Utah starts things off.
The music at the end is Wide Awake from Secrets by Deep Sea Diver.
Mike Wiebe (@mikewiebe), the lead singer of the Riverboat Gamblers, shares some Trooper Ale from Iron Maiden Brewing, and we discuss origins, art, music, creativity, and why any of that matters. A chat with Boise State student Tiffany McCree kicks things off.
Kyle McGinn is back to talk more about Poetry, his process, how you define poetry, and what makes it good. We also read a bit of poetry and discuss what we enjoy about the genre while we drink more Moose Drool from Big Sky Brewing. It’s a relaxed, mellow vibe this week with just a few ghosts walking around above the basement. A call to Ira (@wemetintheair) gets it going.
The music at the end of this episode is Sirens from The Pack A.D.
Kyle McGinn writes poetry, and he is also cancer-free after going through treatment recently. He was nice enough to bring over some Moose Drool from Big Sky Brewing while I was in Minneapolis, and we sat in a basement and chatted about poetry, life, art, creativity, and how you move on after beating cancer. The final episode of 2015 is a positive one. Grab some Moose Drool and join in. A call to Zeke (@ironmanmode) starts it off.
Sam Mandegaran, who studied at Princeton and Cal Tech, is back this week to continue our conversation about start-ups, electrical engineering, computer chips, film, and more. Sleek Zeke from El Segundo Brewing is the beer this week. It’s a nice pale wheat ale. A call to Keith Blomberg, who directed One-Headed Beast, gets it started, and a song from Matthew Robins (a Snake Bit my Hand) closes it out. You can buy the album Noah’s Ark here.
