Two Cookie Mini was featured on the Notes and Bolts podcast last week. They are a record label that record a weekly podcast focusing on conversations with Chicago creatives. Past guests included Liz Mason (zinester, manager of Quimby's Bookstore, Shameless Karaoke), Ryan and Andy (HeWhoCorrupts record label), Kerry (from the Vegan Skate Blog), and countless other musicians, writers, artists, zinesters, etc.
Johnny Misfit got to site down and chat with host Kriss Stress about zines, growing up punk rock and the influence digital media has on both. We also talked about the Misfits (more than we should have).
Listen to it here streaming on their site. They also have it available on Itunes as a free download.
