First off, Happy Holidays! To celebrate, I’m doing a “buy a CD, get another CD free.” If you order directly via the Paypal link on the Music page of this site, indicate in the notes which CD you’d like for free. Some of my past recordings are even holiday-related, so if you need some Christmas tunes…
Finally – new music! I just returned from Minneapolis where I started recording with my friend and musician extraordinaire Jeremy Ylvisaker, and hopefully my album will be released early in 2016… I’ll post some new music soon on my Facebook page, which I’ve been neglecting for far too long! Give the page a “like,” if you’d like more updates!
The creators of the game Snake Oil have created a few special Beer And Board Games cards for a new edition of Snake Oil Elixir. I’m excited to have my own card!
We also had our first international guests on Beer And Board Games in February. I’m a big fan of the musician Hozier, and when I found out that his brother Jon Hozier-Byrne is a comedian, I invited Jon and his creative partner Davey Reilly to be on the show. More about how that all came about and their visit to Madison can be found in this radio interview on Wisconsin Public Radio and in this Isthmus feature:
The two episodes featuring our friends from Ireland can be found here:
I’ve also been working on a new show with Blame Society, called “Rated RPG.” It’s something of a spin off from Beer And Board Games, and I serve as a moderator and online coordinator for this as well. More about Beer And Board Games can be found in this interview we did with the Cap Times.
