Podcast 19: Public Domain, Essential Gear


We’re back this week with another conversation, this time with Bryan Taylor and Ryan Skiles. Bryan was featured in episode 4 of the podcast, and Ryan Skiles is the guy who makes the charts that are in every issue of The Load In.

In this conversation we talk about Apple Music’s new law proposal, Ryan’s struggle to publish a public domain song, Third Eye Blind, and the essential gear you need if you’re starting your career.
