Hey Everybody It’s Jimbo was a delightfully offbeat podcast by Jimbo on The Overnightscape Underground. He asked me if I were up for an interview, and I was more than happy to oblige. Update 2020: Jimbo is no longer with us, so this episode is particularly special to me. Thanks for All The Great Shows.
