11: 'When You Eventually Unfollow Me', with guest Jack Appleby

Jack Appleby is a Social Media Strategist by day at Ayzenberg Group, a killer marketing agency in California that's worked with really awesome brands over the years. In his spare time, he talks music at a number of publications and has even dabbled in the label/management side of things once or twice. Get to know Jack as he spills the beans on just how many copies of intheclouds' 12 Lathes records were cut as well as a certain supergroup follow-up LP that exists somewhere in the world.

09: 'A Place For Us To Write Freely', with guest Brian Leak

When this thing started as an Under The Gun branded show, Brian Leak (aka The Lion) was initially supposed to be my cohost. Alas, a change in career led him to Substream Magazine where he is now Editor In Chief. A week removed from dropping his first issue there, we discuss how starting at a local rag evolved into a career.

You’ll have to forgive some audio artifacts. Brian had a rough night of being ill the night before, so he forgot his headphones. As a result there are a few overlaps in dialogue.
