TCAD - Theatrical Conjecture And Dissertation, a fancy name for an unfancy show.

By Donald Chambers
A show about film, tv, working in Hollywood and everything in-between that pops into our heads but without all the usual pretentiousness.

Ep. 55 - Figuring this out
Like I have been saying we're going to be making some moves to get better and for this episode we did, we set up a portable studio with real mics and everything!! Now in our tradition of "reality radio" and exposing our fans to our mistakes the recording wasn't perfect. We forgot to turn off the fridge and there's a slight distortion coming from somewhere (I shall find it!!), but we wanted to make sure to give you content while we work thru these growing pains. Trust us, it will get better. You can see our temporary setup on our Facebook page, Cherrae took pictures!!
March 24, 2018
