The Joker and I co-host a podcast for CoventryMusic. Like most of the creative things that drift in and out of my life, I gave it a silly title based on an even sillier inside joke because I figured no one would hear it aside from me and the Joker and our friends. Along the way, more and more people started tuning in and it became one of those underground hits. I love the punk-rock DIY guerrilla nature of the podcast with zero production value. Quickie episodes. Hit-and-run. Roughly the same length of a radio song. Episodes are usually 3-5 minutes. Tons of fun to record.
So that's how the Wook Patrol podcast was born. We had no idea we'd even post the first episode, yet five years later we cranked out almost 100 with different friends of ours, which we recorded live all over the country while we followed Phish or attended music festivals. (FYI... here's quick links to old episodes archives: 2010 Summer & Fall Tour - 2013 Summer.)
After a lengthy hiatus, the Joker and I returned for a series of quick episodes (longest was under 6 minutes) with our friends during Phish's Halloween run in Las Vegas. Guests for this batch include Nicky (aka Change100), RambleOnRose, BTreotch, Wildo, Sean W, Doctor Scotch and Butters.
Here is the quick link for the entire playlist of Wook Vegas episodes.
