Hi Podcast listeners! In the first segment, Ryan and Dave discuss Ryan's upcoming speaking engagement at the NAMM conference and the recent MGM lawsuit settlement involving unpaid interns. Ryan and Dave also discuss indie artist Danielle Ate the Sandwich and her recent project--a 24-hour album! DATS is writing, recording, and producing an entire album of songs in 24 hours and is letting her Patreon patrons watch her do it on live video. It is a great example of effective hyper-creation, fan engagement, and crowdfunding. Find out more about her by following @atethesandwich on Twitter.
In the second segment, Ryan talks with Kill Rock Stars label president Dr. Portia Sabin. They talk about the future of the music industry and have a lively debate about whether artists should be involved with record labels. Dr. Sabin also has lots of great advice for musicians.
In the final segment, Ryan and Dave laugh over a hilarious CraigsList posting about a man trying to find the perfect lady to accompany him to Coachella. Metal Dave stops by as well to give some Grammy news.
