Live Now Special!

Yes, yes! Welcome, welcome to episode number 8 of Le Pod. We bring you an absolute all you can eat buffet of an episode this week, featuring no fewer than 5 separate artists, from different genres and backgrounds that all performed at the recent 'Live Now Festival' streamed straight from the venue of Le Pub.

 

First up we have Welsh singer, songwriter, and purveyor of 'weirdo pop' MADI. After that, is Callum - lead singer and guitarist of folk-punk-emo trio with the greatest band name we've heard in a very long time, Toodles and the Hectic Pity.

 

Keeping this ball rolling is Mogan - a DIY bedroom creator of electronica whose songs simply beg for a full, live audience to properly enjoy them. Our penultimate pitstop comes in the form of Hip-Hop and Rap artist Andrew Ogun who actually performed his very first full live set as part of the Live Now Festival - an accolade that we were more than pleased to both facilitate and behold.

 

 

Rounding out the episode we chat to Katie, the front of South Walian garage rock titans, CHROMA.

Episode 7 - High and Mighty

Yes, yes! Welcome, welcome to episode 7 of Le Pod. This is the first of (hopefully) many ventures into the world beyond music, with this episode's destination being professional wrestling. Guiding us through this foray into wrestling is the one and only "Whiskey Chaser" Martyn Grant. He's one half of high flying, tag team High & Mighty, who recently made waves with their innovative, 'Dojo Deathmatch' which is now available to watch over on their youtube channel.

 

Amongst many other topics we get into the nitty grittys of the relationship between wrestling and music, the stigma that often surrounds professional wrestling, and which skills are most important to an aspiring wrestler.

Episode 6 - Sean McGowan

Yes, yes! Welcome, welcome to episode number 6 of Le Pod. In this final episode of 2020 (and good riddance to bad rubbish of a year, am I right?!)

 

We are joined by none other than Mr. Sean McGowan. The conversation flowed all over topics from drive-in concert experiences, to the layers of meaning in Star Wars, and famous twitter followers.

We chat to Jasper and Caitlin from up and coming, Community Interest Company, Rose Parade Recording Co., and also to Tom, the lead singer, songwriter and frontman of South Wales Indie Punk band, Bedford Falls.

Yes, yes! Welcome, welcome to episode number 4 of Le Pod. This episode's guest is a special one in many ways - he's a Welsh record smashing runner, a singer, guitarist and songwriter in several different bands, and on top of all that, he's friends with Ghostpoet.

Episode 3 - Chris Farren

Yes, yes. Welcome, welcome to episode 3 of Le Pod. This week we are joined all the way from sunny Los Angeles, by the one and only, Chris Farren. Yes, THAT Chris Farren - the properly talented, famous and hilarious man himself.

 

We get into it on the subjects of what makes a good Christmas song, being attacked by a turkey at the most inconvenient time (not sure there is a convenient time to be attacked by a turkey...), and the joys of painting smoking animals.

Available on YouTube and Spotify. Coming soon to Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts and Pocketcast.

Bonus Episode!

Yes, yes. Welcome, welcome to the first Le Pod bonus episode!

There's just too much good stuff going on in the world to wait until next week to bring it to you,(despite what the news may be telling you...).

This week we chat to not one but TWO guests - first up are the gentlemen from local post-rock trio Aaronson.

Coming straight after them are the wonderful organisers of Art On The Hill. Conversation topics include, but are by no means limited to effects pedals, the plight of the artist, and Taylor Swift vs Kim Kardashian.

Episode 2 - Jeshua Marshall

Yes, yes. Welcome, welcome. It's episode 2 of Le Pod, and in this episode Ben chats to none other than the bass playing wild man of Larry & His Flask, Jesse Marshall.

 

Nestled amongst much interesting waffle and chit chat, they talk about states of being in the United States, playing bluegrass on Warped Tour, and setting his sail on a solo career.

Episode 1 - Sam Dabb

Ben chats with Sam Dabb, the venue manager of Le Pub. They talk about the running of a music venue during a seemingly eternal lockdown, the influence of the punk and DIY community in her life, and, very briefly, Nickleback.

 

A massive shoutout to Exit_International for graciously permitting us to use their 'Chainsaw Song' as our theme music.
