Inside Music Podcast #3 – Jacob Tender (Substream Magazine)

It’s back! We told you last week that our hiatus from podcasting had come to a close, and as proof we’ve returned exactly seven days later with our third episode ready to be shared across the world wide web. We know a lot of you have asked about getting this show on iTunes, and we promise that is on our immediate to-do list. For now, you can stream and download this show, as well as the rest of the Inside Music series, on Soundcloud

This week’s episode features Jacob Tender, Digital Editor for Substream Magazine and former editor of Under The Gun Review. He may only be 21, but Jacob has already reached professional heights seasoned vets often long to achieve, including having a personal essay about his favorite band kickstart what eventually became one of the biggest band reunions in recent memory. He’s proud of everything he’s done, but it’s what he has one the horizon that truly captures our imagination.

Over the course of the hour-long conversation found below, Jacob and I talk about his life in writing, as well as how factors outside the music industry can impact people’s professional plans. It starts with a strong focus on writing and blogging, but as things carry one we begin to speak in a far more general sense about the industry as a whole. It’s a hopeful, yet cautious conversation, and I’m glad we got it all on digital tape.

Our plan is to release a new podcast every week from here on out, and we already have another episode 90% complete. We hope you have as much fun listening to this show as much as we did making it. I know we’re not on the iTunes store just yet, but we will update you on that front soon. For now, let’s get to the show:
