Hailing from Denver, Ian Walker is an avid filmmaker, the king of the Scumpire, and an overall really nice weirdo. Our conversation goes many places, not stopping shy of guns, gimps, and other family-friendly topics. Danny Malm and Taylor Kobryn add to the catastrophe that is this episode.

While none of our episodes to date have been appropriate to do so, this episode—in particular—shouldn’t be played out loud at work or around children. Unless, of course, you work from home and your kid is cool.

 The song at the break is Violent Shiver, by Benjamin Booker.

#69: The Ghost Ship Fire

On Dec. 2, 36 people were killed when a fire broke out during an electronic music show in a warehouse known as the Ghost Ship in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood. 

Oakland's arts and music community rallied in the wake of the tragedy, hosting benefits for families who lost loved ones, as well as attempting to protect other live-work spaces in a city with skyrocketing rents. 

Music from this episode was either performed or mixed by Johnny Igaz, a victim of the Ghost Ship fire. You can hear more of his music at https://soundcloud.com/nacktmusic
