Radio Free Krypton interviews More Or Les

I’m nearly two weeks late with this one. If only I had a blue time-traveling police box…

Anyway, More Or Les joined hosts Mitchell, Justin and Jacob of Radio Free Krypton to talk about the good Doctor (Who?), comics, and hip hop.

Geek Music Podcast interviews Thomas Quinlan (that’s me!)

Last week I recorded a podcast with Chad Walker for his Geek Music Podcast on Fandomania.com, and we talked about the early years of Hand’Solo Records, sex raps, physical media, politics, fandoms, and the many origins of the Hand’Solo name.
