Debs and Errol are a geek music duo from Toronto. In our time together we talk about all of the good stuff: how they got together, Toronto conventions, odd treatment from non-geeks.

And then we get into February Album Writing Month! Debs and Errol have done FAWM a number of times and are kind enough to bestow their wisdom on Jonah and Mikey.

Chris Hussey does cool stuff. He has written gaming supplements and fiction for RPGs and is a member of the Fear The Boot gaming podcast. Plus, he won the Edward R. Murrow award. What's that about? Good thing we don't talk about it because I don't want to know.

Listen to

Fear The Boot

It's New Years Day! What better way to kick off the year than with a conversation with Ben Greenfield.

Ben is a science-based fitness guy who doesn't preach crazy workouts and starvation diets. He uses, well, SCIENCE! And it's pretty fantastic.

He answers two big questions for us: 1) How to go to a con and not come home with the crud, and 2) Jonah takes airborn and Mikey say's he's crazy. Who's right?

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.
