WR004: Drugs

WR004: Drugs

Here's the latest episode of the Witchpolice Radio podcast. This week's theme was "Drugs," which proved to be a little difficult, since it's such a prevalent topic in music. It wasn't hard to find songs, it was hard to choose the best ones to play. As usual, there's a short (one-hour) version as well as a longer, more rambling version, but the extended one gives you more discussion about straight-edge, hating the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the ethics of eating meat, television and other off-topic turns. I think this is one of our better podcasts to date, just in the music selection alone, but you can be the judge of that. ...

WR003: Diseases

In this, the third weekly episode of Witchpolice Radio, Rob, Jon and Sam tackle the latest theme: Diseases.

Since the first episode ended up being well over two hours in length, we tried to keep things a little more concise this time around, but it still wound up being over an hour and a half. If you want to hear the full version, you get two extra songs and a lot more discussion, but if you'd prefer a tight one-hour podcast, there's an edited version available as well. ...

WR001: First Show

WR001: First Show

So we finally got around to doing a podcast. I've been talking about this idea for years, and it came to fruition a few days ago when I sat down with Jon Askholm and Rob Crooks ** ** and recording a rambling, over-long 'radio show'. The format, if you want to call it that, was that we would each play records and discuss them, and despite a slow start, it actually started working out. We'll be ironing out the kinks in subsequent weeks (it's going to be a weekly show), cutting the show down to an hour and having a weekly theme... but here's the raw, unpolished debut episode of **Witchpolice Radio**. ...
