Clint Basinger runs the popular Youtube channel ‘Lazy Game Reviews’ where for the past six+ years, he has turned his hobby of reviewing PC games and odd hardware into a full-time job. In this episode we discuss his approach to making review videos on Youtube without the all-too-common gimmick approach, how PC gaming has always been the wild west of video games, subjects he has covered recently such as the Texas Instruments calculator monopoly, the recent history of monetizing Youtube videos and how to make a living off your content in a constantly changing market, and much more.
Adam Tilzer is a recording engineer, producer, and musician who has seen a lot in his time and also has a very firm grasp on the history of modern rock and roll music. Only mere days after the passing of David Bowie, he was the first person I thought of to give some context to his life and legacy. We also discuss what makes a good recording, having music before having an image, the influence of black artists on early rock and roll, we talk about Little Richard and Elvis, engineering the music for FX’s ‘Louie,’ freaking out about meeting Amy Poehler, engineering for Keith Richards’ solo album, Adam's own work with Avon Junkies and The Defectives, and more.
