Episode 47: Go FLAC Yourself

We probably don’t need to tell you that this episode is about iPhones. We probably do need to tell you that we have an awesome special guest! Welcome Adam Bloom of SynchTank, a recent transplant to Nashville and just one of many digital companies moving into Nashville. SynchTank’s intuitive software automates the entire licensing process — making your digital music and video assets faster to find, easier to manage and more profitable. On this episode we also delve into Deezer’s US launch, and we talk about Microsoft’s 2 b(az)illion dollar acquisition of Minecraft. Where have all the rockstars gone, anyways? Oh yeah, they make games.

Don’t forget to grab your ticket for our upcoming Movies On The Back Porch, featuring This Is Spinal Tap. Head on over to see all the great movies we have coming up this year.

Episode 42: Nashville’s our home, Knoxville’s our jam

We’ll miss you, Knoxville! We had the opportunity this week to see the fruits of the labors of the 9 incredible teams in this year’s MediaWorks digital media startup accelerator we ran in conjunction with the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center. All we can say is: holy crap, that was awesome.

Make no mistake. Knoxville means business.

On this episode of Conversely, we’re joined by KEC’s Executive Director, Jim Biggs, and our colleague-in-crime, Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Jonathan Sexton. And we have very special guest Haseeb Qureshi, CEO and Founder of Audiohand, an app for combining multiple mobile phone audio recordings to create incredibly high fidelity masters.

As always we love to hear from you! Email us or tweet at us. Or send us a postcard.

Episode 41: On Sociopaths, With Elvis

Elvis Wilson joins us for this very special filmy episode of Conversely, straight from the brand spankin’ new Back Porch Group headquarters at The Skillery in Germantown. We talk about film, distribution, Netflix, paywalls, and of course sociopaths (because really what’s an episode of Conversely without a few crazy people?).

Check out Elvis’ current project, Empathy:

Episode 40: This is NAMM, Donny. There are rules.

Every summer Nashville plays host to the Summer NAMM Show. It looks like a convention and sounds like a giant Guitar Center. And it’s the best place in the world to check out all the newest gear from the biggest musical instrument brands in the world.

We set up shop to demo our brand new product, Endorsee, for all the brands and artists we could possibly round up, including this guy. (What? You want to try it yourself? Well do it.)

We even asked our friend and partner Joe Glaser of Glaser Instruments to join us for a bit. Thanks Joe!

No show notes on this episode. Have a listen!

Episode 39: Taylor Swift Edition

We’d love to tell you the sound quality of this episode has something to do with #ThrowbackThursday, but the truth is we pressed record on the wrong channel and wound up with a whole episode through the ol’ Mac microphone. But hey, it’s just like the old days, right?

On this week’s episode: Taylor Swift says something positive and the internet gets its panties in a bunch; Amazon says something positive and Hachette gets its panties in a bunch; Brian says something positive and if we talk about panties anymore it will probably be construed as inappropriate.

As always, we love to hear from you. Send us your thoughts, comments, deepest darkest secrets by email or Twitter.

Episode 38: ‘Murica Edition

OH YEAH! We’re happier than the Kool-Aid Man in summer today, because Independence Day is right around the corner. Fireworks, hamburgers, bald eagles. You know, the finer things in life. In celebration of the glorious long weekend (because let’s face it, that’s what we’re really excited about), here’s a very special ‘MURICA edition of Conversely.

In this episode: Google buys Songza, Rdio buys TastemakerX, Spoon goes to the record store, teenagers strike it big on the Isle of Vine, and Music City, in addition to having the second best fireworks display in the nation, is in danger of losing a historic landmark.
