Episode 319: Johnny Goudie W/ Guest Host: Mark Hallman

• October 21st, 2014

hello friends! i hope you all feel a lot better than i look. i have been playing gigs and been in the studio playing on the last parts of the kimmie rhodes album. i had an amazing day yesterday with kimmie, her son, gabe, glenn fukanaga, dony wynn and bradley the patient and sweet engineer. it's been a lot of fun. kimmie has really gone out of her way to make sure i know how good she thinks i am and that just means the world to me. having someone of her caliber bring me in to her world as a collaborator with all the freedom in the world is really special. plus, it really feels like family when you're working with the rhodes clan. what a great time! i'll let you guys know when the album is out. i'm looking forward to it.

episode 319 is a bizzarro world episode of "how did i get here?" because i am the guest and mark hallman is the host. we actually recorded this episode in the summer of 2013. there were some weird things that went down with my mom's case, which we thought was over. her murderer got an appeal just a couple of weeks after we recorded this. i was pretty bummed out about the appeal and in his episode, mark and i talk about how great the outcome of the original trial was, but then i felt awful for a couple of months and didn't put this out. well, i came across it the other day and listened to it and decided to put it out. mark did an amazing job of hosting and guiding the conversation. there is a lot of love and history with us in our 32 year friendship/mentorship. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did. i'd like to thank mark for taking the time and for being my friend. let's get down!
