Inside Music Podcast #4 – James Cassar (Modern Vinyl)

It’s back! We told you last month that our hiatus from podcasting had come to a close, and as proof we’ve returned exactly fourteen days days later with our fourth 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

On this week’s episode, author and Modern Vinyl contributor James Cassar joins us for a conversation on life, love, and the pursuit of writing. James and I have been digital friends for a little over a year at this point, but the recording of this podcast was the first time we had actually had a real conversation with each other. You can tell we’re still trying to figure the other one out in a way, but in the end laughs are had and great stories are shared.

I told James this a bit when we were recording the show, but he is one of the few online writers I make it a point to read on a regular basis. His insight into music, as well as his sense of wordplay, are second to none in this industry. The best part of all is that he’s very much still getting started, which means he likely has many big, brilliant accomplishments on the horizon. To have him on the show is an honor, and I hope you enjoy our conversation.

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 be by the end of the month!
