The 6.5 Questions
1. How long have you been podcasting?
Almost two years; it's pretty crazy when you think about it. I used to walk home in the snow at 3am after work and get on the mic and edit til the sun got up. I think at some point in 2005 my girlfriend forgot what I looked like.
2. How many shows have you done?
I've done about 120 of my own shows, plus worked on other productions here and there, including work for public radio in Germany and elsewhere. I did an interview on Collectik.net recently too.
3. How has your quality/performance changed since your first show?
I started with an internal microphone on an iMac G4, and seriously, it was some amazing sound. Since then, the shows have gotten much better produced, though there are a few shows somewhere in the middle that are such low quality, you wouldn't believe it. I should've been shot.
But in terms of performance, I hope I haven't changed at all. I make an effort to be as raw as possible when I record, so hopefully none of the technical improvements or anything else get in the way of that. If I can still do all my shows like my first one, that'd be something to be proud of.
4. What podcasts do you listen to and which are your favorites?
I've tried a lot of podcasts since I started, but a few have stuck by me the entire time. Comicology is my longest standing subscription; I also love Canadian Podcast Buffet, Extra Super Action Show, the Alan Watts podcast, Bandtrax, the Scene Zine, Alternative Hip-Hop Lounge, Tartanpodcast, and Managing the Gray, among a bunch of other great shows. Also, Digital Detroit Radio is the best kept secret in podcasting.
5. Tell us about your show and who should be listening to it?
Anyone who wants seriously uncensored material, sweet tracks, and an honest point of view - that's what I want in a podcast, so that's what I've always given my listeners.
Also, if you think you don't like hip-hop, or you've given up on it because of the commercialism and thug culture, I'm the guy for you.
6. What is your background (especially if relevant to your podcast)?
I pimped out my voice for radio commercials a lot when I was a kid - I even remember some of the jingles in my head, I'm that brainwashed. Other than that, I guess I just have the personality for it. I've been trained in acting but never for radio. Works fine for me.
6.5 Is there anything else your listeners should know about you, your show, etc?
A few months ago, my blog (inoveryourhead.net) was recently named one of the ten best blogs in Canada by the CBC. That made me pretty happy.
Also, it's a common misconception that my show only appeals to a younger crowd - in fact, it's kind of the opposite: I've got professors, media executives, and senior citizens that listen to my show as well as hardcore rap fans. Give it a shot, you'll probably be very surprised.
