I’ve been listening to podcasts since around 2007 when there weren’t many available and it was something mostly nerds like me knew about. We’re now living in a golden age of content, especially for drummers. There are so many good shows available and I urge you all to check out:
This spring I ended up with some extra time on my hands and decided to reach out to a few of my favorite drummers to see if I could interview them for a podcast series of my own. It’s something I’ve wanted to try and it’s been a fun and humbling learning experience. For those of you who do it week after week, you have my undying respect.
Over the next several weeks I’m going to release the first season of the Practicing Drummer Podcast, which includes five interviews. Four are already recorded and the fifth one should be ready to roll soon.
I’m incredibly humbled that all of these great players took the time to talk about their development and current routines, in and out of the practice room.
The first episode featuring Brad Webb should be out any day now and you will be able to find the podcast just about wherever you listen to them.
I want to give a big thanks to Bart at the Drum History Podcast for helping me pick out gear and giving me a crash course in audio editing. He was so incredibly helpful. Anything you like about the sound is thanks to Bart and anything you don’t like you can blame on me. I’m learning as I go.
