    Happy Quarantining wherever you may be! Hopefully you are staying healthy, safe and inside. Please welcome Riley Gale to the show this week, who is the vocalist for the almighty Power Trip. We discuss his relationship with touring, the music business (and his complicated feelings on it) as well as competition between bands. As usual, it's a wide ranging conversation that I am glad we contained. Enjoy and support all of the touring bands that have recently had to cancel their upcoming tour dates for the foreseeable future. Our music community is reeling and we need to help where we can.

    Andy Othling from Lowercase Noises (live from NAMM w/ Gator Cases)

    I had a great experience recording my first "live" podcast at the NAMM Conference back in January of 2020 with my good friend Andy Othling from Lowercase Noises at the Gator Cases booth. We get in deep with his struggles and bond over anxiety, depression and how that has affected the creation of his music and more. This conversation made me feel less alone and I hope it has the same affect on you. Thanks for listening!

    Gator Cases has a ton of great podcasting equipment, check it out!

    BONUS EPISODE - Ray Harkins and Finn Mckenty talk the business of podcasting on The Punk Rock MBA podcast

    A special bonus episode of the podcast this week is a discussion I had with my good friend Finn Mckenty who runs a great YouTube/Podcast channel called The Punk Rock MBA. He had me on the show to discuss the business of podcasting and we get real deep on this subject. Considering I get a lot of questions about this, I figured it would be great to post this here. Thanks for listening!

    Ryan Patterson is a lifer. He currently plays in the incredible Fotocrime and has put time in other genera pushing bands like Coliseum and The National Acrobat. He's a very thoughtful person and I was delighted to have him on the show discussing his life in Louisville, Kentucky, the pursuit of creativity and so much more. We get real deep, so settle in and enjoy.

    Josh Hagquist from The Beautiful Mistake

    Welcome to this weeks chat with my good friend, Josh Hagquist from The Beautiful Mistake! We get into the history of the band, his life being a trumpet player and ego. We really pick apart so many topics that don't typically get covered in this show, so I really hope you enjoy it. They have a new EP out on Wiretap Records in March of 2020.

    Travis Tabron, ex-Varials & Ethan Harrison from Great American Ghost

    We have a double header of modern metalcore for you today! First up, we have Ethan from Great American Ghost discussing keeping his band together and balancing real life/tour life.

    Then, I have Travis Tabron who used to sing for the band Varials. We recorded this before he left the band and in this chat, you can hear a little bit of his thought process behind him leaving the band (without me even knowing it!). We also discuss the Philly hardcore scene and why recording vocals is a really terrible experience. Enjoy!
