Enjoy the first episode “Booms Baps and Bleeps”
I’m very amped to introduce my latest podcast venture with the Word Is Bond- “Murdock’s Miscellany”!
Anyone who really knows me, knows ima nerd at heart- be it video games, anime, and gadgets to name a few, but I always noticed a thread line in whatever I like, no matter how random, it can all be traced back to hip-hop culture, in some crazy way- hence when WIB approached me last year about officially joining the family as a blogger, I knew what I would want to blog or share with the world and that’s my miscellaneous interest in things, pop and sub-cultural, but since this is a hip-hop minded site- the Murdock’s Miscellany idea was spawned as I use to have a tumblr blog that kinda showcased my random interests but now, it all makes sense and I’m happy to bring episode #1 which ties the 2 things I shaped me growing up and which I still hold dear- hip-hop & video games as I explore their uncanny connection through the last 15+ years of music!
