Podcasts For Moderns / Episode .003 {PODCAST/MIXTAPE}

Yep, I’m back again folks but this time I’ve come armed with a bunch of ladies singin’ and playin’ tunes. There isn’t nearly as much of a gap between male dominance and female obscurity as in years past but it still exists on some levels. But really, the main impetus behind the theme was an abundance of lady tunes in my giant for-future-mixtapes-and-podcasts folder - so I rallied up a quality batch. If you choose to listen to the podcast you’ll notice I sound a little beat up - I’m still recovering from last weekend’s bachelor party. That’s right ladies, 2 more months until I take up arms with the girl of my dreams.

So I’ve finally done it - I’ve mastered Audacity, bought a decent mic and joined the podcasting community. You’ll still be able to stream the mix without my between-song banter on 8tracks and I will still provide a link to the files in a zip file via my Dropbox if some dude blabbing on about shit interests you not. The podcast will be linked to in mp3 format below until I figure out a sleeker way to distribute it. I’ve submitted the first cast to iTunes and it’s under review so if/once it’s accepted I will link to the feed so that you can subscribe directly that way. Anyways, it was much fun putting this together and I’m excited at fine-tuning the process! Enjoy!

Mixtapes For Moderns / Case Study #11

Well, here it is - the final mixtape of the year. There’s no compendium of ‘best songs of 2013’ or anything like that - that will (sort of) arrive later via my favorite albums of 2013 post. Shortly thereafter I am going to share a resolutions list of which I will explain how I am drastically altering the way I discover and listen to music in 2014…amongst other things. This has been a lovely year - bought a house, started a tape label and I even wrote my first snail mail letter to a friend for the first time in, like, forever.
