In this underacted episode, our heroes talk video game studios, the importance of sound design in the gaming process, and Joey's music store debt.  James talks about breaking gutiars, Joey rants about over-priced equipment, and they dable on guitar pedals.  Too many topics to ramble through.

In this pre-licked episode, our heroes continue their list of "found" recording tips.  They debate listening volumes, monitor selections, and where musicians should listen to their mixes.  Joey deals with his old man issues, and James slurps through coffee with slurred commentary.  Lots of puppy love in this one, folks.  Also, this was the last episode of the year with Mary Lee, as she returns to college for the winter.

Episode 78 - Start The Podcast

August 1, 2017

In this false starting episode, our heroes are joined by Katrina Griffiths (co-host of @veritypodcast & @xanister on Twitter) to talk about her new podcast, Start The Music! (@startmusicpod) where she dives into where music begins, BEFORE the rest of us hear it.  James steers the conversation into the idea of "hate" in art, Joey insists on "taking the money," and they come to the conclusion that censorship is tricky.  Of note, Mary Lee piped up afterwards with a warning about the legal ramifications of the line where art crosses into hate...  but it was after the group was cut off by the hour time limit, which is already longer than these hosts should ever talk.
