Music Gossiping On The Danko Jones Podcast

Danko Jones podcast

Danko Jones podcast

One of my favourite thing I worked on this year was helping edit international rock ‘n’ roll star Danko Jones’ new book I’ve Got Something To Say.

To help promote said book Danko had me on his long-running podcast in the fall.

We didn’t actually do much “promotion” of the book, but we sure had a time gossiping and light trash talking all sorts of things music.

If that’s not enough Michael Myers content, Sarah also appeared on Consequence’s themed-Halloweenies podcast to discuss the film. You can listen to that here:
