Here it is! The first podcast from the road. Tiffany and Todd Ballou are the founders of in Alvin, Texas. We talked here about their history and how they moved all these chickens to Texas from Peoria. Continue reading →
Japan Soul‘s Jason Paul joined me for this talk about the making and inspiration for their new album Plastic Utopia.
You can see them live this Friday, June 20th at The Bitter End. 10PM. Be there!
I’d love your support with my kickstarter for the album and book based on my solo show, Tentative Armor. All the details are here!
I needed a briefing on what has been going on with Russia and their rapidly declining human rights policies, and I know no one better to talk to about these things than by dear friend and NYC bad-ass, Ken Kidd. This is an unedited discussion recorded on my iPhone in Ken’s office. No frills, but plenty of important information that needs to be heard. Listen. Share. Act.
With numerous thanks to everyone who donated to the show, I am pleased to report that I will be picking up my new mixer tomorrow morning! Thus, MikeyPod will go back to its weekly presence in your earbuds. YAY!
WOW! Four years! I assembled some of my favorite podsafe/specially cleared artists who have graced the ‘cast in these years. Also in this episode, a contest to win the first three issues of T.O.F.U. Magazine. Listen and win!
Seriously. Thanks to those of you who have traveled this road with me for the last four years!

Apparently I am on a temporary hiatus from podcasting. Things are kinda banannas for me right now, but in a good way. I am teaching in all the boroughs (well, not in poor Staten Island) and musical directing A Grand Night for Singing at Theater 1010.
Fear not, things will chill soon and I will be back to the casting. Thanks to those of you who have been asking where I am!
If you are wondering what this is all about, I tend to draw all over random things that get in my path and Mikeypod was gracious enough to let me commit blograffiti here this evening. In part to provide his album art for this month, although fashionably late, but more importantly it means I got to scribble all over his blog for a while. That was fun, although not the part where I thought I broke the internet by doing so. I’d totally do it again though. Thanks sir!
