Fan favorite Gina Ree Reeturns to the underpaid after the show took a six month hiatus! What would happen in a Jutty Papacy? What does Mitt Romney believe in? What do Shakers believe in? What is a Shaker? Don’t listen to this one if you are super religious or Republican. That said, I bring up what’s great about one of those things and defend both as guest Gina Ree sits down with me to ask where the heck I’ve been for all this time!

Hello, welcome back Underpaid Podcast! In this supersized episode, I sit down with longtime friend Jon Costantini, and we talk about the changing face of media, the demise of our beloved Super Video, the largest independent video store in upstate NY, and the nerdiness we have for films! Also, feel my envy for Jon’s film knowledge and his freaking wolf story. He made a film with live wolves! What have you done?! He’s just better at it than me and you’ll see why.
Stay tuned til the end to hear our remake of “Oh God!”
Also, listen for my big news, aka why there hasn’t been any new podcasts in awhile. Thank you for listening!

Gina Ree reeturns to the show to talk about the music biz, and her latest
venture, Music Inkorporated, in the first international episode! Gina
quizzes me on music, and I get everything right! We discuss the role of the
music label in the post internet landscape. What is the business of music
turning into? What kind of role does technology take in our collective
choices on music? We discuss the Grammy awards and the difference between
performers and musicians. Then we shift gears like conspiracy freaks and
discuss public school history class and the lack of the foreign teachings.
And then we talk politics and the health care debate.Then we go back to her
reasons behind coming up with her MusicInkorporated.com business, and what
she’s looking to do for musicians and entrepreneurs. What happened to rock
music? Gina then gives me a great compliment and I reveal a secret. Listen

If you ever have been to Albany, NY there’s one place that people just know,
it’s invaded the local popular culture, and has been Bombers Burrito Bar.
It’s right in the cultural center, and Matt Baumgartner joins the podcast
recorded at The Olde English with a bottle of Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay
Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Yum. Oh, right, the notes. Anyways, this is truly a fascinating, deep conversation with a guy who makes it happen. Learn how Matt transitioned from a boring job he hated, to opening a little Burrito
restaurant, and developing it to Opening three more Bar/Restaurants. He
gives the secrets to his success! He is candid about business ideas and
practices and is a completely personable guy. Oh, and by the way, we both
are slowly getting drunk during the whole thing. I’m not going to spoil it
with notes. Just listen already. I literally get drunk with an icon of
local culture and you learn things.
