Hey everyone! My name is Trey Hanawalt and i run a small label called Lost State Records in Portland, Oregon. I started this podcast to learn more about music and the world, be it people who play in bands, run labels, or honestly anyone who does any type of art that contributes to making society a more interesting place.
Episodes will be posted on this page every once in awhile, or whenever we get around to finishing an episode.
I chatted with my friend Jeremy Mcguire from bands such as Machinist!, Leg Biters, Pope Boner and Sports Reference, he also runs and owns Killer Robot Music. Me and Jeremy go back quite a couple years. The first time i met Jeremy was setting a show up back in California at a dive bar for Machinist!, they were on tour and needed to book a date. Our mutual friend Zeke (RIP) told me they needed help, so i took a chance and helped them out. Since then we became friends and have worked together on a lot of things. I hope you enjoy the conversion i had with Jeremy!
