My new podcast series is finally here (sort of) and I can't wait for you to hear it.
I'm thrilled to present, We're All Mad Here, a brand new podcast series co-hosted by my partner, Madeline Wilson Shaw and I.
We’re All Mad Here - Trailer
My partner Madeline and I have decided to join forces to bring you a podcast with a wide-open format featuring conversations, interviews, medium-ish dives into news and pop culture, and other loose rantings on all the things that are pissing us off on any given day.
Madeline is funny and charming and smart and truly is my better half. She always has insightful and important things to say about everything. I’m glad I convinced her to join me in making this podcast series.
I say fuck a lot and have produced a similar project (Ryan McMahon Gets Angry) before. When thinking about the next podcast series I wanted to produce, I wanted to keep the format loose, continue to say fuck, and overall, I just wanted to have fun.
Together, we’re working to blend our families in an intentional and good way, raising our son and building a beautiful life. One thing that really works in our relationship is our conversations - they’re open and frank. When we get the house quiet at night, we often sit in our den and chat late into the night. We don’t always agree (she’s Mohawk, and I’m Ojibway, know what I’m sayin’), and our chats are always excellent.
Ultimately, we often arrive at what feels like a brand-new place together. This is what we’re aiming to do with We’re All Mad Here - bring our audience to brand-new places and understandings through curiosity, conversations, love, and humour.
A few quick notes:
The podcast isn’t quite available in your favourite podcast apps yet; it will be in the coming days; when it’s available, I’ll give you a ping here.
We are going to have merch - we need to upgrade our gear. If we’re able to sell enough t-shirts and totes and stickers, we’ll be able to grab better microphones, a few cameras (did we mention we intend to build this into a video podcast too), a Rode Rodecaster Pro, and a few odds and ends that’ll level up our production in a serious way.
And finally, if you were considering becoming a paid member of this Substack, now would be a great time to join - we want to pay a producer and editor a living wage to help us make the show - your support would go a long way in enabling us to do so.
Funky theme music! Child labour! All the tea! Bring it already!
