Deep in the mysterious, northwest-Arkansas landscape, Paul met with Stephen Winter and Piano Barbarian alumnus Brian Lee.  This podcast takes the record for most tangents in an English accent.  The merits of live music and music-capitalism will be debated and discussed with fervor because Paul read an interesting article and is caffeinated.

Congratulations to the entire Piano Barbarian family as we crest into our 50th episode!  Paul randomly bumped into Frank McGlynn and Dave Puszykowski in Denver last week, and they were gracious enough to be guests on the podcast 24 hours later.  This episode features a deep-dive into straight-to-video Disney animation, which is a requirement for any podcast reaching 50 episodes.  It says so in the podcast manual.

Battered and bruises from some weird Halloween shows, Paul sits down with Lee Huff and Hannah Kendle to argue the merits of playing the solo of Great Balls of Fire with your breasts.  Lee and Paul advocate this, Hannnah actually does it.  Also, a dissection of the California piano bar scene and ponderings of how many ass-exposing-Disney-princess costumes is too many.

Broad questions are confronted in this episode, such as the merits of YOLO and the level of pride we invest in artificial appendages.  Also, Dave Alan and Travis Von Cartier allow Paul to have a mini-therapy session after being ridiculed while enthusiastically playing key-drums.

First of all, look past all the references to prison showers and blow-up dolls.  Once you do that, you'll find a a great interview with Jeff A and Jeff D of ComedySportz Quad-Cities, located in Rock Island, IL.  Paul worked at this club back in the 1900's, and the Jeffs were kind of enough to sit down and discuss the tenants of improv...and prison showers.  Find out more here: http://www.establishmenttheatre.com/

Jason & Adam work nearly every night in the touring production of Wicked, the smash-hit musical about the land of Oz before Dorothy crashed her house in it. Jason is the conductor and Adam is one of several keyboard players, ocassionally conducting himsel.  Basically, they have bad-ass musical theatre jobs, and Paul managed to talk them about their careers and musical theatre whilst only bringing up Hawaiian strippers once.  Wicked has done much to keep theatre alive in this world, and guys like Jason & Adam are the backbone of that success.
