Nick featured on the Musicians Cooler Podcast

Posted: Jul 16, 2007

Just did one of my first interviews with a world-renowned podcaster by the name of Jammin Dave Jackson.

Dave hosts a show called the Musician’s Cooler that regularly gives away tons of great info in the form of audio podcasts you download right to your iPod.

(Perfect for those long roadtrips between gigs.)

I got into podcasts a few months back when I discovered I had 30+ Gb of free space left on my Video iPod, and didn’t know how to fill it. That and I’m just always hungry for good content.

They say you are the sum total of the 5 people you spend the most time with, so for the past few weeks, I’ve been soaking up as much knowledge from Jammin Dave as I could, listening to all the archived podcast episodes. I highly recommend you check it out.

So here’s my interview with Dave. He called me up and grilled me for a half hour on everything I’ve learned in my 365 days. Just push play!
