    Hanif Abdurraqib from Lost Notes Podcast, Poet, Writer and more

    I am honored to have on a great human and thoughtful music critic, author, podcast host and all around wordsmith, Hanif Abdurraqib. I felt compelled to reach out to him after loving his season of the incredible music podcast, Lost Notes, as I knew he had connections to our beautiful DIY punk/hardcore scene. We dive in to his life in Columbus, remembering to be a fan of music (as a critic) and the process of writing. LETS GO!

    Tim Riley from Souvenirs

    My friend Tim Riley from Souvenirs is on the podcast this week on the heels of the release of their newest LP called "Love For the Lack Of It", released by Other People Records. We roll up our sleeves and get into being welcoming, balancing creativity with "real life" and his battle with rheumatoid arthritis. It's quite a journey, so enjoy!

    Serena Cherry from Svalbard

    I love the feeling of discovering new music, even when a band isn't technically "new" and Svalbard, did just that for me this year. I had to have Serena on the show, so we made it happen. Their new LP "When I Die, Will I Get Better" blew me away so Serena and I discuss that, the UK press, being an outsider and of course, roller coasters. Dive in and find out more about your new favorite band.

    Jay Laughlin from Turning Point, Godspeed and Honey

    Turning Point. What a legendary band and I had the chance to speak to Jay Laughlin, who played guitar in the band as well as Godspeed (highly overlooked post-Turning Point emo band) and his current band, Honey (a rad metal band). We discuss how he views his musical legacy, how much it cost them to record "It's Always Darkest Before the Dawn" and being creative at all costs. Jay is a lifer and I am sure glad he's put out all of the music he has.
