Based in Rockford, Illinois, Sock Monkey Sound is a music and culture podcast. We have conversations about the state of music and culture in our world, picking apart musical genres while exploring the boundaries of our own perceptions and taste. Notable guests on our podcast have included Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers/Archers of Loaf), Hutch Harris (The Thermals), David Bazan and Dan Deacon, as well as members of The Dandy Warhols, Superchunk, Built To Spill, The Dismemberment Plan, Tokyo Police Club and many more.
Musician, comedian, and Tap Me Games grand beardmaster David Ballard sits in on this weeks show. He talks about how he left Rockford to pursue riches in a far away land called Chicago working on interactive games with Tap Me Games, the impact of marketing and social media (as if he’s an expert or something), and we play a round of Word Association with David.
