In the interview, we talked about concert venues, the blessing and curse of labeling music, follow-up fandomy questions, Facebook stalking, retail magazine etiquette, and out of control Magic the Gathering spending.

Also, I want to put out a call to fans of geek music. During the months of June and July, I’m hoping to record some banked episodes of the podcast for August, September, and maybe even October. If you’re a fan of geek music, I’d love to talk to you about that fandom as well as any other fan-related stuff you’d like to talk about. If you’re interested, get in touch and we'll set something up (details below).
