Over the course of the last few weeks, I put great thought and consideration into the future of the Noise Pollution Podcast.
It’s a time consuming thing to put together, and when it’s coupled with the events of my personal life, and the work that goes in to creating written content for Noise Pollution, I decided to put a full stop on it.
Then, a funny thing happened. My little blog for sharing reviews and thoughts on the music that I love, found some like minded, and equally passionate people who wanted to get involved. I am lucky to have found these guys, first and foremost, because they are good people, but also because they’re good writers, and in helping me share the load they free me up to grow Noise Pollution further.
And that is what will happen. That “little blog” that I mentioned earlier, will become more of a fully fleshed out website. Whether by making an upgrade to Noise Pollution itself, or by “teaming up” with an established website, our content will reach more eyes and ears one way or another.
Yes, I did just say ears. The people have spoken, and it seems that nobody wants me to end the Podcast. It was hard to ignore really. With that being said, I will continue it, but due to time constraints it may be a monthly thing rather than once or twice weekly.
I am lucky enough to have access to some fantastic artists and industry people, which often makes for fantastic audio interviews, and it would be a shame to not utilise that access to its full potential.
On the podcast thus far, I have shared interviews with members of international acts such as Sevendust, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Loudness, Jorn and Beastwars, as well as home grown talent like Echo Dell Tusker, Chaos Divine, Suldusk and Setmeonfire, plus some great stuff with comedian Steve Hughes, photographer John Raptis and comic book creator Aaron Sammut.
I really enjoy talking to these people. That part I could do all day, everyday. It’s the firing and actually creation of an episode that takes time. But I’ll make the time, because you asked me to.
I have a few interviews “in the can” ready for inclusion in future episodes. There are great chats with D.W Norton from Superheist, Ted from Circles, singer/songwriter Joe Matera and my good mate, journalist/chef/author and all round great human, Shane Pinnegar of 100% Rock Magazine.
Yesterday I posted an episode featuring what is probably my favourite interview I’ve ever done, which was with Paul Woseen of The Screaming Jets. I’d love it if you could all check it out, and share the link.
I’d love it if you could check out everything that we do on Noise Pollution. Support not just myself, but Rick Trewin, Greg Noble and Gregg Heldon, because these guys are all working hard to deliver great content to you guys on a consistent basis.
And of course, the podcast;
