Aram drops in to catch us up on what he’s been doing in the years since his last appearance. We start off with a conversation about the importance of simple, foundational HC lyrics and move on to cover Aram’s new band, new business, and new addition to his family. Miss Michaelanne, who sat in for all three hours of Aram’s original episode, was on another continent while we recorded this one, but we still found a way to include her through the magic of modern technology.
Check out Aram’s band CHANGE.

I’VE KNOWN YOU TOO LONG
David Larson is a screenwriter from the Seattle area who ran an independent record label called EXCURSION for many years. Over the course of the last three decades, Dave has formed friendships with a large number of people who have made an artistic impact, mostly in the world of Punk Rock and Hardcore music. Many of these people have gone on to greater and more varied adventures in the worlds of art, film, music, politics, and activism. In this podcast, Dave uses the timeline of their first meeting to explore back and forth through their histories to try and gain a better understanding of how they came to be the people they are today.
They say history is written by the conquerors, and while none of these campaigns are complete yet, it is time to get some of these tales nailed down before they are lost to time and age.
