In the words of music editor/writer J. Edward Keyes, there is a remedy for nostalgia, specifically when you're discussing new music. The best recordings didn't cease when you left your teens. Amazing songs are in full abundance, but now you have to do a bit of online legwork to unearth them. Joe's background has been a statement of his receptivity with over two decades of writing about an array of styles from hip-hop to black metal to Christian rock. The latter? A signpost harkening back to Joe's nascent journalism career writing for Christian music magazines prior to contributing to secular publications like SPIN, Rolling Stone and Pitchfork. He also left behind an early calling to be a youth pastor. Joe's currently the editorial director at Bandcamp, a music platform for independent musicians to sell their music and merchandise. He oversees the Bandcamp Daily website that is an eclectic source of interviews, genre round-ups and in-depth articles. Joe also has a personal blog, An Atheist's Guide to Christian Rock, that explores and reevaluates some of his most beloved music of the genre.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would take a moment to fill out this brief demographic survey. It will be used solely to help me select advertisers/sponsors for Talk Music Talk to offset the cost to produce the podcast i.e. audio editor, podcast host, traveling to guests to record. It should take less than a minute of your time. Thanks!
