343 Podcast

By MidesMusic
My name is Midé and I'm a student of music. One of the things I love is the rare opportunity to peek behind the process of making music and. I watch a lot of interviews of musicians, artists, movie directors, actors and that sort of thing. I find that the magic is embellished for me when I learn about how something I've enjoyed was created.

Well this one of those kind of things lol. Not only do I get to talk about the process of working on some of my music, I get to have a chat with some interesting creators and we go behind the curtains to share some of the "chaos" that happens in creation.

343 with Josh Bridge
My guest in this episode is Josh Bridge, a long time friend and collaborator. I've seen his work grow over the years from one tier to another. As you'll hear in this episode, it all started when a small spark was created and he was handed a camera in church. Today he's not only a filmmaker but also a script writer and director.  You can watch Josh's movies and take in his work by checking out his profile on Instagram and Youtube at @_joshbridge. While you're there catch up on Mother's Cry, a visual poem that will definitely draw you in emotionally.
