RSR PC 063 Greg Thomas (Silver Bullet Studios)

This month we talked with Greg Thomas of Silver Bullet Studios, End and myriad musical projects. We really just scratch the surface with Greg and it’s a great talk chalk full of knowledge nuggets.  What a Colossal (wink, nudge) interview!

We talk about some of the music we’re listening to and Greg drops lots of teasers on upcoming recordings. New With Honor. New Murmur. Will the Risk Taken album come out for the 20th Anniversary of the studio next year?! Should it?!

RSR PC 061 The Problem With Kids Today

Silas, Tate and Reena are The Problem With Kids Today. They’re also a band of the same name (wocka wocka).  We talk to them about all the usual musical topics specific to them and their band. We talk about Sesame Street, Dora and various early musical memories as well as Reena’s vlogging dad and Tate’s Miracle Legion connection and building a shed instead of getting a job with Silas and various other divergent topics as it goes. And we start with the music we’re listening to of course.

CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP (or Chopx7 for short or maybe even just Chop) joined us on the podcast this month. We talk about cybergrind, noise, where those meet and overlap for him. We talk about working with other folks on various projects. We talk about how the Chopx7 Tik Tok became as big as it is! College. Shows. Music. Conversation, as usual, stretches out from all that.

RSR PC 059 Hardcore Sweet Bakery (Nicole & Jeremy Braddock)

Nicole and Jeremy Braddock own and run Hardcore Sweet Bakery out of Watertown and their satellite location in Southington. Beyond the bakery, which grew out of a cupcake food truck, they also do community outreach programs like a book club, baking classes and a variety of events including the upcoming Punk Rock Flea Market on October 23rd at the Southington Drive-In.

We talk about how they’ve grown their business. We talk about their various TV appearances on cooking competition shows. Lots of fun talk about best selling cupcakes based on different band names and songs and custom cakes based on some outlandish customer requests. Lots of fun was had and topics branch out from there.
