CDM’s friends at the Fake Science Lab report have a new podcast up, featuring Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason. As the creators point out, this is one small step for Nick, one giant leap for podcasting — Mason is the first industry figure to weigh in on an indie podcast. He talks about the book, the band, and some candid thoughts about the future of the music industry.

Fake Science has some other interesting guests on this show, too: talented German ambient producer Markus Guentner and cellist/violinist/producer Rena Jones (Rena’s been on CDM before to talk about her festival featuring women in electronic music).

I’m anxious to check out the new book Inside Out in paperback; it’s already on Amazon. I’ll add that to the reading pile inbox! (Check out the cover by long-time cover artist Storm Thorgerson!)
