I retired both of my previous podcasts, Off The Record and Simpler Sound, alongside PropertyOfZack in the summer of 2015 as I graduated college and began working for Procrastinate! Music Traitors. Podcasts, however, are something I still listen to everyday. That's why it's so exciting to be doing a new series called Timing is Everything (subscribe on Overcast or Apple Podcasts) with my Bad Timing Records partner, Thomas Nassiff, about the label itself. Why are we making a podcast about our label? As Thomas wrote:
The label was not started as an ambitious project, and we still aren’t a very ambitious label, though we have done (and are currently doing) some moderately ambitious projects (Devinyl Splits Vol. 2 is currently ongoing; the first installation is available in our webstore). But after doing this for a few years, we want to sorta catalog the label’s journey — perhaps for our own posterity, but also to hopefully help some people somewhere learn about starting an independent record label. If our story encourages one person to start one new record label, I think that’s a win.
We are partnering with Modern Vinyl on the series and the first two episodes are up now. The first episodes are a little longer than future episodes will end up being. I hope you'll find the time to enjoy another podcast featuring two white men discussing something they created. The plan is to release an episode every two weeks or so. If you listen to these first two, we’d love to hear from you — feel free to send us thoughts, complain to us, or ask us questions to answer in the fifth episode via @BadTimingRecs.
