Ep. #100: “Tha True Showtime is back”

Finally! We got Tha True Showtime back on the podcast to have a blast recording once again and share with us on the details of his growing empire! Rick and Miguel had a blast going back and forth with Showtime, and we got surprising tidbits about his plans for the future - including his involvement with our podcast! In this episode we cover box office numbers and a few trailers before launching into a hilarious and entertaining interview with man of the hour fresh from Atlanta, Georgia.

Ep. #99: “Eye of the Nemer”

On this episode of CTP, Rick and Miguel had a blast interviewing the very talented and edgy indie author, Ashley Nemer! They found her to be a very quick-witted, pithy conversationalist who fit perfectly on the show. Aside from being really entertaining with the banter, there is also a lot of very interesting insights to be gained from this episode for anyone interested in writing. This episode is both funny and informative. A perfect CTP mix!

Ep. #96: “The guys are tired but the Fire is Wild”

This time it's a Shawn-n-Rickisode. We're pumped to be bringing y'all some more H-Town local talent on this podcast! We had a great time interviewing Kelli and Kayla Iutzwig from Wild Fire. They are an amazing country duo that are way ahead of their young age of 13 and 15. You will get to check out 3 of their songs in this episode, including a brand new release that we are ahead of the curve on: first we play One, then Cure (that's the new single!), and we wrap up with Young Love. These girls were amazing to interview and they're very clearly going places with their music! Check them out on their social media and everywhere they have their music available:

Ep. #95: “Guess what… It’s Showtime!”

We had a freaking awesome episode this time! Shawn is reunited with the podcast after his month long sojourn in Ohio. Miguel is overjoyed at having another mug to stare at aside from Rick's. And Rick is majorly relieved to have someone else to distract his cousin long enough to catch a break and throw him off. We had a blast together and also brought in a really entertaining guest that we're sure you'll thoroughly enjoy as much as we did!

That's right, this episode is featuring Tha True Showtime with his tracks, Hella Bands, Get Fucked Up, Supa Str8, and Pussy Like Water!

Check his stuff out at his website on SoundCloud.  

Enjoy the show!

Ep. #94: “What the Sharknado”

In this episode we have the eccentric and extremely witty, Gary Morgenstein, who is the mad genius behind the promotion of the Sharknado movies. But he is also the writer of a new science fiction hit novel, A Mound Over Hell! Which is an awesome sci-fi novel that combines a dystopian, post-World War III America with 20th century baseball legends. Miguel and Rick had a great time talking with Gary about his new book - with plenty of Miguel fanboying over his involvement with the Sharknado franchise of course!

Special thanks to the Mikalyn Hay for letting us use her music for the intro (sampled from her song, Save Yourself) and guest interview intro (from her single, Carnival) and outro (from the single, Free As A Bird). You can find any of her music at SoundCloud or on iTunes

Ep. #92: “Getting Crude with Steve Orlando”

Ok, here's a freakin amazing interview for all of our fellow DC nerds out there! (The comics, not Direct Current. Sorry guys, but you have to put away the freakin batteries!) We had the amazing Comicbook Writer/Scripter Steve Orlando on the podcast with us! The man's work with DC is nothing short of prolific and intense. This dude is the real deal and also a friend of our own Mig 1.

We're always working on bringing you the best and most interesting guests for our interviews. People that do awesome things and are just plain fun to jack around with! Steve is definitely a proud new edition to our list of podcast guests. We hope you enjoy hearing from the man himself as much as we did!

Special thanks to the Servants of Science for the guest intro and outro music from their album, The Swan Song.
