Terms & Policies


This podcast/blog is not primarily financially driven. I started it in 2017 to build a community and learn from the interesting people I meet and interview.

Regardless, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.  So here goes…

First, the obvious: I am an internationally touring and session bassist and music director. People pay me for services rendered and intellectual property. 

Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to disclose this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for me and even more tedious for readers. But rules is rules. To cover my ass and preserve your listening/reading experience, please assume that, for every link and product I use, the following all hold true:
