This week I sit down with Brett Shumaker of Don't Let the Scene Go Down on Me! Collective & The Mr. Roboto Project for lots of cool talk about the current state of Pittsburgh DIY, the business of booking shows and doing what you do because you genuinely love doing it. Sit back, relax and let's START THE BEAT!

PS: If you don't want to sit through the extended intro and listener questions you can jump to the 27:00 mark for the beginning of the conversation with Brett. Just a heads up!
