    This week on the podcast, I catch up with one of the titans of nerdcore, mc chris. We talk about fatherhood, his upcoming projects, and what he has been up to during the pandemic. We also discuss our past tours, why things haven’t always gone smoothly in our friendship, and how gratitude can be a motivating factor for full-time artists. This week's episode was both cathartic and inspiring; and I could not think of a better guest for the milestone 100th episode!

    From ages 13 to 16, I played in a band called Horris. Though the group’s members rotated over the years, our last lineup consisted of seven members by the time we played our fourth and final show on New Year’s Eve, 1998. This week, I talk to the only other member who was part of the project from its middle school genesis to its breakup in high school, Shawn Levin. We also talk about the time we went to see ICP in Palo Alto in March of 2000 and why camping in Big Sur is amazing. Thanks Shawn! Awesome catching up!

    The PDX Broadsides

    This week on the podcast, I talk to placentologist / nerd musician Dr. Jess F. Hebert about midwestern accents, crowdfunding, and why eating placenta meat might not be the best idea. We also talk about the merging of sciecne and art, and how performers like Tom Lehrer helped pave the way for irreverent, smart, transgressive music. Dr. Hebert talks about how science is for the enthusiastic, which I thougth was a genisu way to put it. She's had an awesome journey so far, and she was really fun to talk to. Thank you Dr. Hebert!
    Special Guest: Dr. Jessica F. Hebert.

    Dr. Jeb Middlebrook, Ph.D.

    Dr. Jeb Middlebrook, PH.D. (a.k.a. Jus Rhyme, a.k.a. Privilege) and I met in 2008 while he was working towards his PhD at USC. I had heard about his anti-racist activist work in Jason Tanz’s “Other People’s Property”, and had seen him on VH1’s “White Rapper Show”. We talk about his journey from the music industry, to academia to becoming a successful realtor! Middlebrook has always been there to inspire and educate me, and was one of the best dancers as Ash and my wedding in 2018. Thanks Jeb!
    Special Guest: Jus Rhyme.

An awesome interview. Thanks Sean!

    This week on the podcast, I talk to a friend I met online 25 years ago, Douglas Burke (Phone Freak), who when he’s not podcasting or doing standup comedy, works for a school district in Michigan. We reminisce about first meeting online in 1995, our shared love for cartoons and prank call tapes, and what he’s been up to the last quarter of the century. An awesome talk with a great friend, today’s episode shows that online friendships can be real and long lasting!

One more thing!

Lars is an enthusiast in the best sense of the word. His comments are thoughtful. This is a great podcast if you want to get into someone’s head about the things that THEY are into. Learning about new art and new thinkers is what this podcast is really good for.
