The dopest podcast you haven’t been listing to.
I wanted an almost cathartic ritual of speaking some of the random thoughts that live in my head; like a personal confessional to no one. I live in so many realms and participate actively in so many subcultures, it’s often difficult to have conversations with people about the things that interest me, the things I spend a lot of mental time on. I don’t fit the mold by any means, so my conversation follows suit, naturally. Science, scif-fi, style, fashion, music, culture and more—all in the same brain, all at the same time. So while sitting at a Starbucks on one particular Sunday in late-2017, I began recording into “Voice Recorder” on my iPad. And with that, borrowing from an obscure line from one of my favorite movies ever—“Long Live the Fighters” was born. That continued for the rest of the year, through the holidays. The first of the New Year brought a couple more voices to the fray, more talk topics & ideas, and a new app—Anchor—allowed for those ideas to become “shows.”
Now in vol.2, Anchor allows the user to have a virtual radio station, so “RDQLUS Radio” was born, with LLTF as the flagship podcast. Other programming includes “Coffee + Convo”—a segment that picks up in the middle of a real conversation between myself and someone, and “I’m Tryin’ to Tell Ya…”; a segment where I share a few life-operational pieces of advice and anecdotes (which I intend to publish very soon). I share the proverbial mic with a couple of regulars—Gary Ballard of The Midwest Fashion Journal & Haberdash O.N.E., and Jason Thompson aka DJ Eazydoesit.
