Today’s guest on The Conversation Hat Podcast is Daniel Kirk, host of the Local Distortion podcast – a show which regularly features underground rock and alternative bands from Cambridgeshire and beyond. Kudos to Dan for pulling-off something which we know, from experience, is mega tricky.
In this episode we discuss
The aim of Local Distortion is to promote and reignite the independent music scene in a way that is accessible for everyone and you don’t have to be in the know to enjoy it. You can (and should) watch Local Distortion on YouTube.
This episode features a sketch entitled The N Word – written by Liam, featuring him and Ben.
We tracked down the harmonica cover or Duel of Fates from Star Wars. It really is something special.
how to become a patron (and why)
Our plan is that this show will always be available for free, but super fans are encouraged to support The Conversation Hat via Patreon. There’s a whole bunch of rewards available for doing so, including your own Conversation Hat hat, downloads of music written for the show, early access to episodes and bespoke limericks:
If patronage isn’t up your street, then maybe this is for you: Super Loot want to deliver a box of nerdy merch and geek chic to your doorstep each month, and will do so for £19.99, (you can get your first one for £15!) Take a gander, right flippin’ now!
