Larkspur Underground (2017-)

larkspur105I composed, performed, and recorded the musical score for this serialized investigative podcast, produced by Michael Gonzalez in Los Angeles. The first season (11 episodes) finds Plainview Public Radio host Tara Bay on a mission to vindicate Jane Doe, the sole survivor of a sadistic serial killer known as The Scientist. Jane has been jailed as an accomplice while her tormentor eludes the authorities. It’s dark and disturbing, with great performances set in a variety of locations.

Here’s a post I wrote about the scoring process, including an interview with the producer.

Important Question? (2014-16)

Important QuestionCaleb J Ross and I debated taboo subjects and uncommon dilemmas—often as devil’s advocates—with absurdity, hilarity, and profundity. I’ve linked a few of my favorites episodes (of 57) below, each of which you can get through faster than a DVRed sitcom. Find the complete episode guide at or see for even more fun media and discussion.

Ep. #25 “What would you sell your soul to the devil for?”
Ep. #49 “Does anybody really know what time it is?”
Ep. #11 “Would you rather be uglier or dumber?”
Ep. #21 “Would you consider yourself racist?”
Ep. #23 “Would you rather be on the ascent or the decline?”
Ep. #43 “Who ya gonna call?”
Ep. #04 “Would you have sex with a corpse?”
