John Anealio is a great musician and always good for a smart conversation. Yeah, we get a little geeky (or is it nerdy) about sound tech at the beginning, but then we hit all of the good stuff.


Plus! Two songs

George R.R. Martin Is Not Your Bitch

The Millennium Falcon For Christmas


They can both be found at

NaNoWriMo is over and we get back to what we do. Jonah went to the final DarkoverCon and Mikey released his new album Dangerous Gifts

And as we head into December we are launching our first ever fundraiser. We are asking for a little help to buy better recording software and to cover the hosting costs. But it's not just a "give us money" thing. By donating $25, you name a song and Jonah or Mikey will record a cover and send it right to you. Go over to http://prosandconspodcast.blogspot.com/ to help out the show and get a song.
