The Zero Check Returns

Track this Session

This is a live podcast recording of The Zero Check, a podcast about music that you’ve probably never heard of. Our show fizzled in late 2013 or early 2014 – we can’t really remember. But Steven and Rick, two of the original three hosts, decided to give it another shot. Will we find fame and success? Maybe – probably not. We just have fun talking music and recording the conversation for posterity and/or hilarity.

Join us for our return episode, we’ll discuss two albums that were influential in their own ways, contributing to the evolution of music we hear today.

Elvis Costello – My Aim Is True
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five – The Message

If you like discussing music, it doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced podcaster, or a new listener. You’re welcome to join. Don’t come expecting Alan Cross level music history – we’re just two guys who have fun talking music.

Key Take Aways

  • How to record a basic podcast
  • You'll learn something about Grandmaster Flash you might not have known
  • Same as above but about Elvis Costello
  • That podcasting can be as simple as you hoped it could be
  • Why we called our show the Zero Check
Beginner Podcasting & New Media Session

Q: I heard PodCamp Toronto is an “unconference.” What the heck is that?!

An uncon­fer­ence is a facil­i­tated, participant-driven event cen­tred on a theme or pur­pose (in this case, podcasting and various forms of digital media). Because we’re an unconference, we encourage our participants to exercise the “Law of Two Feet” (see next Q)
