Tech Director Chat #007 – Let’s Stump Pete
We’ve made it to the long fabled episode 7 of our podcast! Actually, I have no idea whether that’s a milestone or not, but in this week’s episode I do get to use a creepy voice, Pete and I battle the evils of the Yik Yak App, and we touch upon the “no tech” philosophy of the Waldorf School. I also introduce a regular segment, “Stump Pete”, in which we get to question whether he’s fit to call himself a musician.
All that and more on this week’s exciting episode of “Tech Director Chat!”
