The Future Of Concerts?

2020-11-1701:22:40

Episode 59 of the ReadJunk Podcast is with hosts Bryan and Chris, featuring Chris's buddies Drew and Jason (Devil's Due Podcast). We talk about the future of concerts and what's that going to look like post-COVID. We talk about the current state of things, how shows and concerts could be improved in the future, live streaming concerts happening now, how Brexit could be a big problem for UK bands post-pandemic and other things along those lines.  The transition track is from Chris Taylor.   Subscribe to the ReadJunk Podcast at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Youtube, Castbox, Stitcher, etc. or you can even listen to the episodes on ReadJunk.com!    Site Links: ReadJunk: http://www.readjunk.com ReadJunk on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/readjunk ReadJunk on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/readjunk Bryan Kremkau Art on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/bryankremkauart Bryan Kremkau Art on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BryanKremkauArt/ Buy ReadJunk and Pop Culture T-Shirts at my Teepublic page: https://www.teepublic.com/user/bryankremkau

It's been about 5 months since the last podcast episode of the ReadJunk Podcast but we're back! Just been keeping myself focused on work and personal life and not being so stretched thin with a lot of things. Believe it or not, it takes some effort putting the podcast together so just needed a little bit of a break.  I figured I'd get the usual gang back for some catching up. We discuss the music industry and what's going on in the world of COVID-19. When it will be time to go back to shows, when will you feel comfortable going to shows again and things like that. They we venture into politics and discuss the upcoming election and mail-in ballots, mask wearing. We talk about politics in entertainment and how to separate the art from the artist. On more lighter topics, we talk about missing New York Comic Con this year, what are some TV shows and movies we have been watching and we finish things up discussing our go-to Halloween movies.  The transition track is called "Agridulce" by Guerrero from Los Aggrios (@yo.soy.guerrero) and The Zensies (@thezensies). You can check out the full track and purchase it over at Zensies Bandcamp page: https://thezensies.bandcamp.com/. Thanks to Robert Julian for sharing it with the show.   Site Links: ReadJunk: http://www.readjunk.com ReadJunk on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/readjunk ReadJunk on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/readjunk Bryan Kremkau Art on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/bryankremkauart Bryan Kremkau Art on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BryanKremkauArt/ Buy ReadJunk and Pop Culture T-Shirts at my Teepublic page: https://www.teepublic.com/user/bryankremkau

Episode 55 of the ReadJunk Podcast is with Ryan Miller (DJ Ryan Midnight, 100% Ska Podcast), and journalist Eric Althoff (Washington Post, LA Times, ReadJunk) and it's all about 80s and 90s movies. Movies we grew up watching all the time on TV, not necessarily good movies. The movies we discuss could be considered underrated, under-appreciated, obscure but they were movies we watched a lot regardless of quality. We talk about Krull, Highlander, BMX Bandits, RAD, Tremors, Only The Strong, PCU, Airborne and many more movies.  The transition track done is by Vibe Mountain and it's called "AI 2."

Favorite SNL Sketches

Favorite SNL Sketches

2020-03-2101:14:05

ReadJunk Podcast has returned! This time with my twin brother Matt and our friend Chris and we discuss our favorite SNL sketches, cast members, seasons or eras, and other things that come to mind. Figured I haven't done an episode since January and since everyone is stuck at home from the Corona Virus, now would be a good time to get some episodes under our belt. Have a listen, and be sure to spread the word about the podcast if you haven't already! The transition track done is by Kevin MacLeod and it’s called “B-Roll (ska) - Islandesque.” I got the track on YouTube Audio Library. The track is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license.

It’s the first ReadJunk Podcast episode of 2020 and Episode #50 of the podcast as well! It’s with my buddy Adam Coozer, who co-created ReadJunk with me. He started Read Magazine, I started Ska, Punk And Other Junk and then we merged the sites about 15-17 years ago. This is actually the first time Adam has been a guest on the podcast and figured it would be a good time to discuss the 2020 Oscar Nominations. We usually do an article about our snap judgments of the Academy Awards but think it’s better to just discuss it over a podcast episode. We never claim to be experts on this, and usually we haven’t seen the majority of the movies but hey, it’s still fun to talk about.  We talk about the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards, 1917, Joker, Marriage Story, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Jojo Rabbit, The Irishman, The Lighthouse, Toy Story 4 and of course it wouldn’t be a discussion without Adam bringing up Rush. Adam pays tribute to Neil Peart as well. We botch the Documentary categories since we never saw any of them so no respect to those categories. We also wonder why film editing is a thing, and how come the sound categories aren't just merged. I’d love talking with Adam because he makes me laugh and we’ve always worked well with each other so I hope you enjoyed this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. If you stay until the end of the episode, congrats!  The transition track done is by Vibe Mountain and it’s called “Great Hope.” I also used the following track below for a bit of intermission music. I got both tracks on YouTube Audio Library. "Busybody" by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license.
