Author, freelance writer and Do You Know Who You Are? podcast host Eric Grubbs comes on the show to discuss the wide range of influences that got him into vinyl - Face To Face, Eric Carmen, Pet Shop Boys and Bruce Springsteen among them - as well has how inspiration can literally come from being hit on the head! We also discuss his 2008 book "POST: A Look at the Influence of Post-Hardcore 1985-2007" at length, including anecdotes on interviewing members of Fugazi, Sunny Day Real Estate, The Promise Ring and more for it.

We also discuss the state of mainstream country music, how his 5-year-old daughter took to vinyl, meeting your musical idols on the job, and lots more!

Troubled Hubble drummer and acclaimed photographer Nate Lanthrum talks with host Jim Hanke on this debut episode! Nate has photographed the likes of President Obama, U2, R.E.M. and Tom Waits, but the work he's most proud of was featured by the Chicago Tribune in 2014, spotlighting his interaction with the last families living in the Cabrini-Green housing projects. We discuss his original interest in vinyl (which then parlayed into collecting cameras), Troubled Hubble's early days and recent reunion after a 10-year hiatus, what it's like to be a juvenile probation officer in the digital age and he tells some hilarious stories about meeting both 30 Seconds To Mars and Fugazi's Ian MacKaye.
