A Shot of Jamieson, Episode 2.3 - Chris Ott (shallowrewards)
The newest episode of A Shot of Jamieson features music writing veteran/video criticism pioneer Chris Ott, a.k.a. Shallow Rewards. We talked about the reception of his Shallow Rewards video series, the great venture capital/media conglomerate takeover of the music journalism industry, boring day jobs, and our favourite music and writers of the year. We also touched on his recent ebook, Commentaries on Pop 2005-2012, which is absolutely worth your time and money.
As always, thanks for your support; I’m open to any questions, comments, or concerns. My main goal for this year’s installment of podcasts is achieving gender parity, so consider this an open call for women in music writing: if you’re interested in hopping on a podcast, please let me know! (Recommendations are great too.) I have some really awesome women lined up for episodes over the next few weeks, and I can’t wait to record and share those with you. Happy listening!
