54 Interview with Arc Iris (Zachary Tenorio Miller & Ray Belli)

I chat with Arc Iris members Zach Tenorio Miller and Ray Belli about comedy, their careers, the writing process, the state of the industry, as well as a whole bunch of other shit. We recorded outside the Central Saloon in Seattle before their show. It was really fun interview and thank you to the band. Arc Iris is an experimental dream pop band out of Providence, Rhode Island, founded by ex-The Low Anthem frontwoman, Jocie Adams. Zach plays keys and Ray drums, and they recently toured with New Zealand powerhouse, Kimbra.

52 David James “DJ” Roy

Vancouver/ Toronto comedian, David James "DJ" Roy and I sat down to talk about his life of homelessness, comedy, being on the periphery of "the scene", the Vancouver housing crisis, his porn career, and a plethora of other things. Heads up: The audio quality is super sub-par; not sure what happened, but my apologies. It was a fun talk. I hope you can understand it. Check out DJ: https://www.opencomedy.com/davidjamesroy

24 Interview with Mike St. Jean

I sat down with the unfairly-talented multi-instrumentalist, "Two Turntables and A" Mike St. Jean to talk about the value and re-purposing of art, music, meditation and more. Oh, and taquitos, of course. He's a very heady and cool dude and I hope you enjoy it. I apologize for being a bit more wooden than usual; I was very tired. And still am. Do it up!

44 Interview with JJ Caithcart

I met JJ Caithcart at his store, SCRAPE Records, October 7, 2010. Fresh out of high school, I became addicted to music, heavy metal in particular, and learning more and more, and JJ fed that addiction with aplomb. Over the next six years, I spent countless hours there, hanging out, talking, learning, listening, and was privileged enough to help with in-store meet-and-greets with bands like Gojira, and Devin Townsend. We talk the fate of the store, the record industry in general, and his partnership with Vancouver metal band, Zimmer's Hole. Below, you can find links to a Zimmer's Hole pre-order on Indiegogo, as well as other Scrape Records media. Check it out!

43: Interview with Ché Aimee Dorval (2!)

The wonderful musician, Ché Aimee Dorval returns to the show for an hour-long interview. Since our last talk, Ché has been busy at work on her new album "Between the Walls and the Window," due out December 8th and it definitely shows in the singles that you can hear. We talk about music, the process of making this new record, her most recent foray into veganism, and social issues like the "Me too" campaign, sexual abuse, racism, and much, much more.

An Interview with Kelly Carlin

In her own words, “ Kelly Carlin is a thinker, writer, talker and doodler. She’s funny, serious, silly and deep. Sometimes she wishes she were Carol Burnett, other days it’s Patti Smith, but mostly it’s Oprah Winfrey. It’s complicated.” She is also a performer and story-teller based in LA, and as you might have guessed,…

An Interview with Grace Savage

A four-time UK champion beatboxer, Grace Savage recently released her debut EP “Savage Grace,” featuring her incredible vocals, electronics, and, well…. Beatboxing. Self-effacing and thoughtful, Grace makes time in her busy schedule to work with children with special needs and teaches them how to beatbox. I’ve said ‘beatbox’ entirely too many times. It was an…
