I'm an old-school guy. When podcasts came on the scene, I was living on the ranch in the middle of nowhere, with dial-up internet, then satellite--neither of which were conducive to streaming video or audio. As a result, I never got onboard the podcast train. Now that I'm able to stream, I still rarely do--when I'm working, I listen to music, and when I'm not working I'm usually spending time with the family, cooking, or reading.
That said, I know podcasts are incredibly popular these days. I understand the appeal, but just don't partake.
But occasionally, when asked by somebody who I think has something worthwhile to offer, I'll take part in one. I did that this week with my friend Scott Haskin, a multi-talented writer/composer/musician/producer (who, incidentally, produced the audiobooks of my novels Cold Black Hearts and The Devil's Bait, both read by actress/producer Tamara McDaniel). Scott knows a ton of creative people, and lives in Las Vegas--which, for all its bad reputation, is really one of the creative powerhouse cities of the U.S., right up there with NYC, LA, and Nashville. Each week he interviews a different creative individual, and his podcast is really catching fire.
Here are some links, so wherever you listen, you should be able to find this episode. And of course, keep checking back for more of Scott's work!
