Razorcake Podcast #169: With Bill Pinkel

Bill Pinkel here, special (emphasis on the word “special”) guest podcaster of the week. I was a little nervous going in as my voice sounds fine as it’s reverberating about my skull, but once when recorded it sounds like a congested toddler after a glass of milk. Not a pleasant image I realize but unfortunately apt. Also, after reading a eulogy at a relative’s funeral when I was twelve, my grandfather said I spoke too fast and that I should have practiced more. I think I did pretty well considering I was twelve and grief-stricken, grandpa! But hopefully that’s not an issue here.

I tried to pick songs that best represent my taste in music over the last couple of years and ones that hadn’t been played on the podcast before. So enjoy these painstakingly selected tracks that Todd and I, bellies swollen with burrito flesh, sat around listening and chatting about for an hour or so.

It’s still crazy to me that in a few short years I could go from loyal reader of Razorcake to regular contributor and dare I say, friend to the boys in the basement (Todd and Daryl told me that’s what they like to be called) who work tirelessly to create such an awesome magazine. See you all at Awesome Fest!
