The year was 2015. Show host Blake Wyland intended to start a podcast where he took a deep dive with his guests from the guitar world to explain their rigs. What happened was that, but also a whole lot more. The show quickly evolved into discussions about people's lives. Guitars, pedals, amps, etc. are the central hub of the show, but it really is more about the PEOPLE behind all of it. Both the musicians who use the gear, and the folks that create these magical tools of expression. You can expect chats about songwriting, favorite bands, family, loss, addiction, conspiracy theories, philosophy, and most of all....... food. This podcast goes all over the place. Come take a ride.

    Paid vs Unpaid Pedal Demos w/ Ryan of Demos In The Dark

    My buddy Ryan Plewatki from Demos In The Dark came on the show at long last! On this one, we take a long look at "paid vs unpaid" gear demos, talk about Shaquille O'Neal, gush about Seuf Guitars, and a whole lot more.

    Francesco Artusato of Light The Torch

    I am super stoked to bring this one to you! Fran and I really hit it off here. The dude has a great story and has put in THOSE HOURS. We talk about his story, gear and his musical life. There is some really fascinating stuff here. We got into some of his years with All Shall Perish, transitioning into the spotlight rapidly, playing for massive crowds vs real life, and how Light The Torch got off the ground.
