OMGDSM's posts

It's official. The hard drive in the computer on which I recorded (and [eventually] edited and mixed) all of the interviews I completed in 2014 has locked up harder than leftover fruitcake. I’m working on regaining that functionality, but being a low no budget operation means that such things proceed at a less than ideal pace.

THE BAD NEWS is that all the interviews I had in the can are gone into the unknowable void. I didn’t really have the means to backup that much audio (see above re: budget), and when the drive stopped spinning, they disappeared.

THE GOOD NEWS is that we're starting over with a clean slate. This is the perfect opportunity for you to tell me what I should point my as-yet-unpurchased microphone at in 2015. What are the people or projects more people should be talking about? What #DSM  stories would you like to hear (or tell)? You can share your suggestions on your preferred social media platform, or by email to

Thanks for listening, and here's to a happy, healthy and productive #2015.

Hey everyone, I just wanted to check in and apologize for the long wait between episodes. I've had some personal and professional challenges that required me to put OMGDSM on the back burner for awhile. Just this week, as I was gearing up to produce a new episode, the computer that I use to record and edit the show decided to eat its own hard drive. I'm working on trying to replace it, but it's going to mean rebuilding a lot of stuff from scratch. I'll do my best to get a new episode released as soon as I can.

In the meantime, to learn more about what's happening in the arts and culture community here in #DSM‪ , please check out the Des Moines Social Club's "Scuffle" and Brian Campos' Pants OFF #Podcast

Making a folder for songs to feature on the show, my fingers typed “Snogs” instead. I decided to leave it that way.
