Episode 014: From PA to Eternity w. Justin Bender

Musician, producer and now mobile game designer Justin Bender is a long-time friend of yours truly, and asking him a be a guest on the show was a clear no-brainer.

From his time in bands like Cessate, Third Ion and Into Eternity, Justin has toured the world over and played in front of thousands of fans. He sits down with me to cover the course of his career writing and performing music, his production work with other bands, and the launch of his first-ever video game!

Chapter of the Mad was the premiere online Metallica Fan Club Chapter from ’96-’99. Founder and chapter co-head Jameson Calantoc joins me via Skype to talk about his early days as a Metallica vinyl collector, the ambitious beginnings of Chapter of the Mad, and why it eventually shut down. I also get his thoughts on Metallica’s output in the years since, and an update on what he’s up to now.

Episode 009: Born to Entertain w. Mike Carroll

Musician and sound engineer Mike Carroll joins me via Skype to break down over a decade of being involved in the Edmonton music scene. We chat about his work as a sound engineer, his time in bands like The Cowabungas, Bikini Atoll Beach Party, and Systems To Chaos, and what a creative mind does when faced with social distancing.

He also throws in a tip that every sound engineer should know when working with live bands, and vice versa!
