Two-plus years of planning, hoping, experimenting, stressing, and working culminate in this collection of half-covers, half-originals: Knowbody. I made an album. It's out today! It's music. Mostly ....avant-garde? Experimental? Whatever. It's certainly not for everyone; an acquired taste, for sure. It may be underwhelming for any real musicians or music fans, but goddamnit, I did…
I talk about seeing Ricky Gervais live, the Devin Townsend Project hiatus, and mental illness in the context of Bell Let's Talk, as well as the future of this show and other projects.

I sat down with the unfairly-talented multi-instrumentalist, "Two Turntables and A" Mike St. Jean to talk about the value and re-purposing of art, music, meditation and more. Oh, and taquitos, of course. He's a very heady and cool dude and I hope you enjoy it. I apologize for being a bit more wooden than usual; I was very tired. And still am. Do it up!
I'm a lucky little fanboy and interviewed the wickedly talented Che Aimee (AH-mee) Dorval. She's had a 10+ year career as a solo guitarist and singer, having released Underachiever in 2008 and Volume 1 in 2015, and is known for her collaborations with Devin Townsend on 2009's Ki and 2014's Casualties of Cool. She's got a killer voice, a great personality, a sharp sense of humour and is a lovely human being. We met at a small restaurant to talk music, life, comedy, performing and a lot more. We also eat. I talk about myself too much. We're definitely BFFF's now.
Metal drumming legend, Ryan Van Poederyooen and I talk music, positivity, success, health and happiness. Great dude and a great chat. Thanks to Ryan for talking to me! Ryan's various pages can accessed from rvpdrums.com
I met JJ Caithcart at his store, SCRAPE Records, October 7, 2010. Fresh out of high school, I became addicted to music, heavy metal in particular, and learning more and more, and JJ fed that addiction with aplomb. Over the next six years, I spent countless hours there, hanging out, talking, learning, listening, and was privileged enough to help with in-store meet-and-greets with bands like Gojira, and Devin Townsend. We talk the fate of the store, the record industry in general, and his partnership with Vancouver metal band, Zimmer's Hole. Below, you can find links to a Zimmer's Hole pre-order on Indiegogo, as well as other Scrape Records media. Check it out!

I'm a weirdo and had a dream about Devin Townsend after our chat.
My fanboyishness paid off in the form of an interview with metal god, Devin Townsend. He very graciously came to my home and sat with a mediocre comic, podcast host and interviewer to talk music, comedy, death, the human condition, gear, future plans, and much more. It was a pleasure and he is a great guy.
The wonderful musician, Ché Aimee Dorval returns to the show for an hour-long interview. Since our last talk, Ché has been busy at work on her new album "Between the Walls and the Window," due out December 8th and it definitely shows in the singles that you can hear. We talk about music, the process of making this new record, her most recent foray into veganism, and social issues like the "Me too" campaign, sexual abuse, racism, and much, much more. I enjoyed the talk a lot, and am happy to say we have become friends in the last year. I hope you enjoy it too. Do it up!

If you know me, and certainly if we’ve discussed music, you’ve suffered through me blithering about my favourite artist. If you follow this podcast, you’ve heard my fumbling attempts at sounding insightful. And if you are the man himself, you’ve offered me more time and thought than I deserve. Yes of course, I am talking…
