43: Craig & Katy talk about Year One of the Pod
WELCOME TO THE EDUPUNX PODCAST
First thing's first - we've been a podcast for ONE YEAR! And during that time, we have had so many fascinating conversations with a bunch of awesome people. One thing that has been only merely touched on is information about me (Craig) - so Katy had the great idea of the two of us sitting down to chat about my exposures to the worlds of education and punk and the podcast. Truly breaking down the edu, the PUNX, and the podcast!
We dig into how I grew up as a first-generation college student who loved school, and developed into punk kid who challenged authority at every turn, adapting DIY ethics, and eventually starting a podcast that connects people with those things in common as well. While there have been many pieces of my life strung together throughout the episodes of this podcast, here's a true chance to learn a bit more about me, the guy behind the podcast!
- This week we shared tunes from the new Retirement Party album, "Somewhat Literate," which was released on May 25 through Counter Intuitive Records.
- We shared the songs, "Scene 48," "Grand Am," and "Truck Stop Casino."
- The album is currently available FOR FREE DOWNLOAD on their bandcamp site, so you have no reason to not download this album right now!
- And hey, if physical music is your deal, you can snag the vinyl pressing or a CD from the folks at Counter Intuitive Records, like we did over the weekend!
As always, you can CHECK OUT THE NEW SPOTIFY PLAYLIST!
- This was a rough week for me and a few others, so I wanted to hype the National Suicide Prevention lifeline. Please know that you have an outlet in case you need someone to speak with when you aren't feeling great.
