    This go around we talk to Pop musician Abram Shook from Austin,TX. We get to know each others quarentine routines, dive into the consequential effects of this shut down on the music community, and loosely offer some advice to those of you struggling to figure out how to get through this crazy time of ours. Good habits, people! Since Abram has such a sweet collection of tunes we decided to pluck a song from each of his 3 full length albums to give you a little taste of the Abram Shook stockpile! Remember, there’s still plenty out there to explore and as always we highly encourage it!  As a recommendation from Abram, we dug up the link to this “labor of love” that is a time machine Go explore this and follow the instructions at the end of the episode as a great quarantine activity!  The awesome INTRO+OUTRO music by EASY DEVIANCE Explore more ABRAM SHOOK

    11/04/2020 Duração: 01h19min

    This one goes out to our listeners who shamelessly divulge in the realms of true crime podcasts! We step off the well lit, densely populated path, and into the shadows with the host, writer, and producer of Dark Topic and Crime Machine, the one and only, JACK LUNA! The stories told on DARK TOPIC are ones that would turn the guts of seasoned police officers, and somehow Jack has come out of the booth with his facilities still in tact...sort of.  We discuss the ins and outs of curating a show like Crime Machine like a yellow submarine in a sea of true crime podcasts, adaptation during a pandemic, and each weigh in on what it might take to get away with murder these days in the age of social surveillance. Don’t worry, it gets lighter too when we talk about poop and the joys of raising children, but then it gets dark again when we go back into talk of child murder. Ooooops* SIDE NOTE: Since first hearing Dark Topic over two years ago, it’s been a TBE goal to pick the brain of MR. Luna and it is with immense  plea
