RAIN STOPS PLAY (formerly known as Ear Corn with Mark and Bruce) is a weekly podcast centered around the ongoing struggles faced by artistic types in these challenging times.
Mark Crozer is the bass player with The Jesus and Mary Chain and also the singer-songwriter behind WWE Bray Wyatt's entrance theme 'Live in Fear.' Bruce Windwood is a writer-producer-director of numerous projects including the award-winning feature film '12 In A Box.'
The usual mix of serious discussion and inane banter. This week... Rethink. Reskill. Reboot. What's really going on here? Plus the Lockdown Lowdown, Mark's Shopping Addiction and On The Hook with Simon Hook.
More second class chit chat from The Axis of Idle, including You Don't Have To Be A Celebrity Question Time and more. Mark would like to apologize for mistakenly saying that the French word for 'crow' is 'carreau.' This is obviously utter nonsense and the correct word for 'crow' is 'corbeau.' Thank you for your patronage.
It's a bumper One Year Anniversary edition of the podcast (taking the name change into account of course.) Today the chaps talk about time travel, making things, plug Mark's new radio show (The Dream Stream, 1 PM EST every Friday on KPISS.FM) and share Episode 6 of Eternal Strife.
Tune in for the results of the Great Rain Stops Play Trombone Experiment. Also featured this week: More hammock chat, a double 'You Don't Have To Be A Celebrity Question Time and Episode 5 of Eternal Strife.
Well then... today's show features a little bit of the usual silliness but a whole lot of very serious discussion about racism in the wake of African-American George Floyd's death at the hands of white police officer Derek Chauvin.
Fifty minutes of utter nonsense featuring live coverage of the 52nd McVities Annual Knobbly Knees Contest, another Bruce Rant, Celebrity Question Time with Jo Caulfield and Isobel Campbell and much more!
Another does of silliness from the Axis of Idle featuring live coverage of the 97th International Tiddlywinks Championship, Episode Two of Eternal Strife and a Celebrity Question from comedian Michael Spicer.
Light-hearted chat with Mark and Bruce featuring Endless Struggle: The Board Game For Middle Aged People, Episode One of comedy-drama Eternal Strife and Celebrity Question Time with questions from John Cleese & Jo Caulfield.
