For the 125th episode I sat down with Si Lewis of the band Amplifiers for a talk about the journey and sometimes, the struggle of being a productive and consistent artist while simultaneously trying to “adult” properly. We also discuss our shared perspectives on trying to keep a positive attitude through all of the noise in our heads and understanding that the world is a very, very busy place. Everyone has a life to juggle and at the end of the day, it’s all about pursuing the things makes us and the people we share our lives with happy. Sit back, relax and let's START THE BEAT!

For the 124th episode I sat down with Trevor, Allison & Mark from The Long Hunt. For those of you not familiar, The Long Hunt is a instrumental rock band with a very minimal but complex sound that transcends multiple genres.
