MULTIMEDIOCRITY #1 – “The Train Job”


Multimediocrity – The Broadcast! Episode 1 – “The Train Job”

Hey now, gang. When State-Lines co-founder Mr. Haas first talked with me about relaunching this here site of blogs and podcasts, I told him that I would be more than happy to contribute some of the former, and had been intending to re-up my own of the latter. The initial recording of said ’cast has been “dropped,” as the kids say, and here we are. It’s a very brief episode–only 15 minutes in length–that serves as more of a “how you doing?” introduction to me, the show, and what’s to come. Hope you guys enjoy this abridged first installment of MULTIMEDIOCRITY: The Broadcast!
