Yes, you read that correctly! The Off the Dial podcast is back after a lenghty hiatus. If you’ve been following us for a while, thank you for waiting so patiently for me to resurrect this and if you’re new to the fold, welcome to our little podcast.

Recently, I started listening to some “comedy” podcasts including the Joe Rogan Experience and WTF with Marc Maron. (For the acronym deficient, that’s What the Fuck.) I put “comedy” in quotes because, although both Rogan and Maron are comics, their podcasts, although containing lots of funny stuff, are more about talking. Rogan’s, is really about discussing with his guests what’s going on, often while high as fuck while Maron is refreshingly an incredible interviewer.
Although this episode is a few months old (it originally appeared in January 2011), this one is particularily awesome. Maron speaks with Henry Rollins about how punk rock saved his life, his strained non-relationship with his father, the death of his friend Joe Cole, the sad state of society and much more. It’s a fantastic interview and well worth the hour-plus time. Click below to listen;
You can hear more great interviews on WTF. I recommend checking out the Louis C.K. and Kevin Smith, both interested listens! You can find WTF on iTunes, in both iPhone and Android apps or on his web site.
We celebrate our 20th episode of the podcast by welcoming back guest co-host and Off the Dial contributing writer Nic Gouveia both at Subterranean Homesick Studios in Calgary including a special exclusive live performance from our former production assistant/engineer Reid Robinson and Dean-o and on location in Toronto where Starship Experience singer/guitarist Jesse Seberras drops in to talk about his band.
