Personal note from Joseph:
when I first started this, it was a music podcast and it kind of sucked. I started interviewing people because it was less self indulgent and more fun. Over the inerviews, I've met musicians, comedians, cage fighters, ex girlfriends, my mom, all kinds of artists and weirdos and hustlers. I've always been attracted to people's stories and a fan of pulling the best out of people. When I first started, I told myself I wouldn't judge the value of this until I hit 100. Now that I'm here, I can say its one of the better decisions I have stuck to in the last 4 years. Thank you to everyone who has played a role in this. I hope to keep growing this more and more.
Enough mushy shit, if you haven't subscribed in iTunes, you're an asshole. Get on it.
Episode 100 Live from Jailbreak
I got to record my 100th episode live and at the Charleston Arts Festival finale a.k.a. Jailbreak joined by 3 of my favorite comedians. Shawna Jarrett, Hagan Chase Ragland, and Jon Antoine . This is my first live podcast and it was an interesting experience, but as always, it just turned into us talking shit and making fun of each other. Enjoy!
So excited about this episode! My whole life, I've had an inexplicable fascination and nostalgia for abandoned buildings but never been brave enough to explore them. With his project Abandoned America, Matthew Christopher has done just that on a grand and beautiful scale. He has documented the ruins of America through abadoned properties. Factories, asylums, theaters, he is fearless in his pursuit of a new look at an old thing. This isn't ghost hunting, and it isn't blight porn, this is a story told through forgotten spaces.
