Start that mf beat

Grab a beer or soda from the fridge and tune in to Start The Beat. Brian is a great host and interviewer, who can take any topic and turn it into an interesting and engaging episode.

Hardest Working Artist in Pittsburgh

Brian is one of if not THE hardest working artist in Pittsburgh. He’s got Greywalker, he’s got Sikes and TNV and then this podcast. The conversations are fun, entertaining, educational and funny. It’s a great highlight on everything this city has to offer and it’s a must listen.

Buzz and Nick ,

Sikes!

One of the hardest working people we know. The conversations are always great and Brian talks to some of the most interesting people in the city!
