Episode #8 — Interview With Rubiee from Pandora Celtica

I am tickled pink about this episode because I got to interview Rubiee, one of the singers in my favorite Celtic music band, Pandora Celtica. I first heard them at Dragon*Con 2010, and they’ve been on my iPod ever since. We talk about their music, the recently-concluded Kickstarter campaign, stories behind some of the songs, what their recording sessions are like, and their upcoming schedule of appearances.

During the course of the interview, you will hear me mention a song that I thought was titled Admiral Taylor. Rubiee suggested that I meant General Taylor, a song from their first CD. Actually, the song I was referring to is Admiral Nelson, a clip of which you will hear in the interview. It is a well-prepared podcaster who gets song titles right.

In addition to the song clips and musical discussion, we touched on:

Episode #4 — Interview With John Anealio

The second Geek Side of Life interview is a really fun interview with multi-talented musician John Anealio. This guy writes music, records the songs by playing all the instruments and singing all the vocal parts, performs live, does a weekly conversational podcast, The Functional Nerds (which I highly recommend for workouts at the gym), teaches music to young school kids, and not incidentally is a husband and dad. He’s clearly someone who has mastered the art of sleeping faster. I hope you enjoy listening to this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it. John’s contact information:
