Certainly well known, but for anyone not yet familiar: Darwin Grosse has weekly interview/discussions with a wide range of people in music technology:

of course what grounds all of these are personal histories, in long form. specific interests come to the forefront, of course.

some favorites from the archive (with my added note)

andrew pask - real-life insights on using self-designed performance rigs
joshua kit clayton - late 90’s bay area scene and having a political stance
pauline oliveros - on listening
gregory taylor - cassette culture and community
todd reynolds - on creativity (which sounds cliche, but this is truly sincere and excellent)

and there are many more in the archives, darwin is up to the mid 70’s now…

chris cutler’s probes series is great, but be careful falling asleep to this, as you may have vivid electro-acoustic nightmares

I absolutely LOVE the Probes!
Really one of my favorites from MACBA.
The series of the history of sampling was quite good as well, and so is the INTERRUPTIONS series.
They really do amazing job there in Barcelona!

Not a podcast, but I really enjoyed this RBMA lecture with Rashad Becker. He talks a lot about the mastering process, the unavoidability of vinyl playback distortion (and why you should buy a hi-fi turntable, not a Technics 1200). There’s a particularly interesting passage when he’s talking about his own music as creating a environment in which a number of sonified ‘creatures’ are interacting and conversing -> a kind of anti-narrative, or stasis that I found very intriguing.

Interestingly, dispels a lot of the rhetoric around preparing vinyl masters (bass phase, high frequency distortion). Using his own voice in the given room as the ultimate ‘reference track’.

the podcasts I listen to tend to be less about music and more about story telling/goofs

with special guest lauren lapkus
improv 4 humans
the apple sisters (the most musical of the bunch)
comedy bang abng is usually good
k hole
you made it weird
risk with kevin allison
call Chelsea Peretti
paul f tompkins just started a podcast on earwolf that I’m sure will be fantastic

nosleep podcast is also a great reddit community turned podcast that supports writers / narrators for horror fiction. there are a couple seasons for free at this point it is 20 dollars for a season but the people who read and write (mostly amateur reddit users) the stories get paid. I love this podcast. I never thought I would be happy to pay money for a podcast

Fellow electronic musician / geek / gamer James Alone just started a new podcast, which is basically him and his friend lee talking excitedly about video games which they love. It’s not going to change your life, but it’s a really nice way to discover some fun games to waste time on.

Going to plug my own show, too. :sweat:

I have a cassette-only, experimental music podcast called Norelco Mori.

It has been mentioned on the old forum, but I’ll let you all know here as well, that I do accept submissions. Please don’t be a stranger, email me at norelcomori@icloud.com if you have a tape of your stuff you’d like to hear on the show.

I was trying to check out some of your earlier episodes but they wouldn’t play for some reason, it could just something going on with my computer/internet but I thought I should let you know.
Very much enjoying your more recent stuff though.
Also really awesome job on your website aesthetic, it looks great!

I tried playing your first podcast and then the second one but neither worked. It would just start to load but then stop and not play. The time marker would show up but stay at “0:00”

@Ted @bwlb I seem to have similar problems. Sometimes episodes just don’t seem to load at all, never even getting at the “0:00”. I tried the first two episodes, they didn’t load. I tried the last one: worked fine. Then I tested some random ones (#19, #43) and they didn’t work either, but #43 did work when I left the site and tried again.
