InsideOut wTnS debuts on the Osiris Podcast Network (OSIRISPOD.COM) with an "Awards-show" style 50th episode. Hosts Rob Turner and Seth Weiner play and discuss four categories of clips. After a "Best Reveal" start, the hosts in typical fashion choose to poke fun at themselves with the remaining categories - "Worst Interruption," "Worst Question," and "Worst Reveal." Amidst these categories are four "Best" performances from previous episodes which feature exclusive live songs from Sam Bush, Randall Bramblett and Kevn Kinney as well as an episode-closing one from Geoff Achison. The other categories feature portions of previous episodes with our all-star cast of guests.
EPISODE #49 WITH JEFF FRANCA
After devising a new slogan for our sponsor, Polay & Clark Accounting, Seth & Rob take us back to Thievery Corporation's last performance in Atlanta on 10/13/17, at the Tabernacle, to speak with Jeff Franca. The interview begins with discussing Franca's 'other' band, Congo Sanchez, and how the death of his brother teamed up with the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict helped inspire their first record. When the time comes to discuss Thievery Corporation, Franca discusses the amount of improv they conduct during a show, what he hopes they can grow to, and how it went by trying to convince all of his bandmates to play a Grateful Dead set.
CHECKING IN WITH: JEFFERSON WAFUL
Rob & Seth decide to call Jefferson to discuss a recent 'lighting designer' commentary piece published by Luke Stratton of The Light Side Podcast, in which Waful ran fans through his mindset while lighting a second set, Der Bluten Kat opener at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY. Waful goes on to discuss the challenges of using video projections during an Umphrey's live show, but how in NYC, they "did it for Pete". The three continue to talk about the odd time signatures of Umphrey's McGee and then conclude the interview by discussing the drastic decision of Waful and UM to use lasers during their recent NYE run in Denver, CO at The Fillmore.

Dead & Co.
capitol one arena
A trip to our nation's capitol right before Thanksgiving served as an example of how Bob Weir's penchant for 'slow-tempo' can be a very, very good thing for Dead & Co.

Ever since discovering Boston radio legend Larry Glick on his bedside tiny transistor radio sometime in the early 70s, Rob Turner has had a relentless fascination with radio. Music would soon afterwards become an obsession, and after seeing Frank Zappa in Boston in 1981, adventurous rock music quickly became a favorite. A graduate of Boston University’s College of Communication, and perpetual student of many aspects of the media world, Rob has, as he says, “skittered on the fringes” of the music industry for decades. He has consistently been a rabid supporter of live music, having seen roughly 100 shows a year from across the musical genre spectrum since the 1980s. He has also at times been accused of being a journalist, writing for print magazines like Relix, Guitar One, Honest Tune and Hittin’ The Note as well as countless internet vehicles.
Rob has lived in Atlanta since the summer of 1999 and very much found a home in the Atlanta music scene. He has worked in various capacities at many local venues, most notably The Variety Playhouse and his current Vip Host position at The Coca Cola Roxy Theater in Atlanta. His many oft-uncompensated contributions to various web sites, most frequently news items on jambands.com, were offered with the intention on shining light on music artists from Atlanta and beyond. He has been a tireless and shameless grass roots promoter since moving to Georgia, and was for a few years a key part of an organic music-based specialty show which aired on Atlanta’s 50,000 watt FM Station WZGC. Rob selects, researches and quarterbacks the interviews, and produces the podcast.
