Osiris Podcast Spotlight: John Barlow’s Memoir, Clifford Ball Soundcheck, From Wall St. to Edibles and More

July 10, 2018

Several recent episodes from the Osiris podcast network catalog are on tap this week, from Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow’s new memoir to checking out Phish’s one-hour soundcheck from their first-ever festival, Clifford Ball. Happy listening! 

Peter Barsoom left Wall Street to make the finest cannabis confections in the world. The Nuka Foods founder talks chocolate, science and the art of the low dose on State of the Garden, the official podcast of the New Jersey Cannabis Industry Association.

Beyond the Margin explores Mother America Night: My Life in Crazy Times, the newly-released memoir of Grateful Dead lyricist and true American maverick, John Perry Barlow. Beyond the book, hosts George and Michael discuss Barlow’s songwriting catalog, as well as his ever-relevant “25 Principles of Adult Behavior.”

The God Ween Evan crew seemed to dissolve into oblivion in episode 10, so it’s nice to find them back on their feet for number 11, aptly entitled “Evan if You Don’t.” As great music is alternately shunned and embraced by Evan, we are transfixed.
Author, blogger, podcaster and music reviewer extraordinaire Phil Freeman’s 20th Burning Ambulance podcast features beautiful jazz and a wonderful interview with jazz bassist MVP Buster Williams, whose hundreds of recordings include works with Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock.
How can you not listen to a soundcheck from Phish’s first festival, the Clifford Ball? Host Myke Menio’s 44th episode of  The Daily Soundcheck brings the goods. Historically he explains the festival, the venue and then hits us with the epic, one-hour soundcheck.

And, as always, check out more great music podcasts over at Osiris, and follow them on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter for more podcast and event news.
