Episode 45 - Joel Switzer

All avoidances will be attended to and repaid unto the souls of those responsible. Namely, mine. Welcome back to part two of our much-maligned Season Three. 
I was joined righteously in conversation by Joel Nobody, or the man who calls himself such, as I skulked away to a beach setting of tourist entropy. 
Joel maintains the churning machine that is Fork and Spoon Recordings of Panama City, Florida, at the heart of the southeast's experimental scene. Shortly after we were joined at Efficiency Fest on May 5 whilst welcoming improvisers from throughout the state, Joel and I broke the thing down. We have much in common and I look forward to hearing more of the sound from his world on the show as we go forward.

Episode 42 - I Came Here For An Argument SWAPCAST

Our homegrown propaganda network continues as we welcome the boys from ICHFAA, the highly active Facebook discussion group-cum-livestream-cum-podcast to the Earth Hotel. This is the first episode with David and Dylan, with myself thrown in the free speech hotseat before stepping back to be plain-ol producer person. We discuss the point of the show, how it has come to be, and what might happen to us as a result of talking. 
The Podcast Gods are currently reviewing our case, so watch this site for the new ICHFAA podcast and subscribe on iTunes etc. when it happens! Here's to a future of friendly fighting.

This week's music:
"Empathy-Release-Empathy for Brass Quartet" by Joel Nelson
"The Noticing Song" by Cahabie Status Quotillard

Episode 41 - Alesha Dawson of Screen Door Review

The heat death swinging is all over and we return! There might be flies on you but there ain't no files that ain't backed up now so we can continue on the road of vantage seeking. My guest this week is a friend and former professor from my days in Montevallo, Alesha Dawson, who has gathered her own forces of words to bring forth the Screen Door Review, a quarterly compendium of Southern queer voices. We speak about medieval literature, the collegiate system, functions of learning, and how words have speakable power. 

Screen Door Review's first issue is online now!
