Start The Beat is a long-format video/audio interview show for creative and curious minds. Every episode features UNSCRIPTED & UNCENSORED discussions with a wide variety of artists, musicians, chefs, comedians, entrepreneurs, and everyone else in between. Focused on, but not exclusive to the Pittsburgh, PA area.
Start The Beat was launched in 2014 by visual/musical artist Brian Sikes Howe as an alternative way to connect with his peers in the underground Pittsburgh scene and contribute something positive to the community. 6 years later in 2020, Sikes has released over 350+ episodes and helped tell the stories of hundreds to guests to thousands of listeners.
