When I first spoke to Jack Barkley about interviewing our mutual friends, Shadyside Allstars, he enthusiastically offered to go back and listen to the old shows in order to avoid asking the same questions that have already been asked. This made me chuckle. I think I've probably asked Shadyside a few questions over the past six years ... but have they actually answered any of them? No, this is a band you just wind up like a top, then let go. To date, there has been very little point in trying to plan or structure around them. I just think of my time with them as being like one of their infamous jams -- there are sections, and cues to move on, but no real planning involved. Not wanting to spoil the surprise, I told Jack not to worry so much with research, since it's been a few years, and who's really going to remember little details like a duped question anyway? Oh yeah, podcast listeners are. That's right, the same batch of rainmen who call me out every time I off-handedly mention an old show and give the wrong show number. I mean, yeah, I can recite the show number of just about every Star Trek, but that's actually important stuff.
Well, sorry to disappoint, but we did dupe a few questions this time around, however we did, in fairness, actually get serious answers, and a pretty decent debate about whether it's better to play to technical correctness or to what the audience will better identify with. Honestly, I thought the allure of actually being live, with a video feed, and free alcohol would have pushed this one over the edge, and really it did, though thanks to the miracle of editing (this was originally a two and a half-hour interview, remember), we actually ended up with something coherent, intelligent, and in places, quite educational.
