Hard to believe it’s been 3 years since our very first podcast. When we first started, we had no idea what we were doing, what shape the podcast was going to take, or if it would even last. Armed with an ART USB Dual Pre audio mixer, a couple of Samson Q2U XLR microphones, and a vast knowledge about nothing, the duo of MattyV & Dan the Man unleashed a mixture of comedy & commentary on the podcasting world.
With upgraded equipment (no more left/right audio! Real stereo tracks!), a Facebook page, a Twitter feed, & the addition of Jen the Intern to try and keep the boys in check while offering her own quips and opinions, the podcast keeps rolling right along.
We thought it might be fitting to share our very first podcast from so many years ago, remastered to eliminate the annoying left/right audio (MattyV in one ear & Dan the Man in the other). Below are the show notes from that very podcast, the links have been updated to fix broken ones from 3 years ago. Enjoy the podcast and tell your friends!
That’s right, this is the inaugural pod of what we hope to be a weekly chat session between 2 schmoes that know everything about nothing! The topics vary, as do the opinions! Here are a few links to some of the topics we covered:
Check out Dan’s creation – Stickman Tim Comics on Facebook
Matty highly recommends Spotify, they have free accounts and access to literally millions of songs. Much better than Pandora because you can create your own playlists.
Dan’s first music video he saw on MTV (that’s Music Television for you young’ns out there) that he could remember was Kiss’ “Lick It Up“, one of their first music videos without their signature makeup but with the cheesy animal prints & spandex. Matty fondly remembers “Let’s Hear it for the Boy” as his first.
They did get a little political talking about marijuana legalization, taxes, & career politicians that have lost touch with their constituents.
Dan shared his view & background on why Dave Mustaine shouldn’t have been invited to Metallica’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Matty also recommends checking out “100 Yen: The Japanese Arcade Experience” on YouTube (was on Hulu originally).
REMEMBER – once we get to 50 non-scamming twitter followers there will be a drawing for a mystery box of cool stuff! So follow us and get your friends to do the same! Win free stuff!
Until next week Junkies
