I started The Podcast Worm with the intention of keeping it up regularly. The first one went live around 9 months ago now, so clearly, that didn’t happen. However, much like Halloween Unmasked, Inside Star Wars was a podcast that really caught my attention.
Mark Ramsey is the host, who has teamed up with Wondery for multiple series that dive into certain movies like Jaws and Psycho. I haven’t listened to those just yet (but I have plans to). With Inside Star Wars, I was able to learn things about the cast that I didn’t know before.
Yours truly is the guest on the latest Wasting Time Podcast. This was a lot of fun, we talked about the early years of AbsolutePunk.net and what it’s like running this website now and how it compares.
Yours truly is the latest guest on the Welcome to Geekdom podcast talking all about one of my favorite films of all time, Jaws.
We also trace Turner’s early years of constant touring and how he’s managed to find the time to write new songs and books while on tour. We talk about social media’s dual nature as a useful tool and destructive force in society too; a topic that has become a common theme among Dialog guests. Finally, we touch on the evolving music industry and how it’s affected Turner’s career as a musician.
I remember when we first put out “Feeling This,” and people were like, ‘Oh my gosh what is this? It has weird drums in the beginning and it has screaming. And Mark is screaming ‘I’m feeling this,’ and does Mark think he’s rapping in the bridge?’ There was all of this negative feedback on “Feeling This” and it’s, I think, one of our best songs.
He then goes on to say the new album is being mixed right now but doesn’t have a title, they think they’re doing writing for it, they tried really hard not to write California again, and the album will have “really aggressive stuff […], stuff that’s probably even poppier than ‘Blame It on My Youth,’ and weird stuff.”
