On this episode of Hyper Nonsense, everything’s gone wild! We talked about my solo quest to the Bed Bath & Beyond to find a kitchen scale and the aftermath that happened at Buffalo Wild Wings (they’re an Official Sponsor of Going Wild!). We made a callback to a previous episode, giving an update on our mission to find RC Cola. (In related news, Jen is obsessed with Canadia Dry ginger ale.) Then, we covered a strange web link that was (apparently) sent via text to e-mail from a mysterious source. We went over some listener feedback and finished out the show with a news article about some homeless guys who tried to sail to freedom in a stolen boat.
We’ve got an exciting episode for you! Not only are we Starbuckin’ it, but we have our first-ever guest for this iteration of our ongoing pod project. It’s Matt Sams, also known as Somnistatic. Matt has undertaken an ambitious song-a-day project for the year 2014. He’s recording a new song every day and releasing it online. As of this recording, Matt is on song number 239. He’s just about 75% of the way there and he hasn’t missed one day! During the interview, we discuss Matt’s songwriting inspiration/process. We talk about marketing and “making it” as a creative person in the Internet age. We meander thru a couple fun digressions and we play a couple of Matt’s songs.
