On this week's episode, Matt tries something different. There is a dearth of news, so we jump straight into a monologue on how curiosity can sustain you through years of collecting. The genesis for the subject came from an interview Matt recently heard with writer Derek Thompson about his book "Hit Makers" as well as a podcast chat about the nature of curiosity and passion. It's an interesting, if slightly meandering rant, based around detective work, pushing your listening boundaries and relying on friends to enrich your listening habits and improve your collection. This is one's a horse of a different color. Enjoy!
Recently, I sat down with my dear friends Todd Stonehouse, Jeff Gower and Jenny Gower-Toms and dove into a discussion about the state of records today and how each of us got to where we are with our collections. The conversation features talk on the rising cost of new vinyl, our crotchety views on hipsters and some nostalgic memories of our earliest records. All in all, it's a great talk that explores some of the deeper reasons we value physical media and how records can be therapeutic and meaningful. Plus, there are lots of laughs.
I hope you enjoy this conversation with Todd, Jeff and Jenny. I know I did.
