The Lede: Celebrating Our 101st Episode (with a Special Guest Interviewer)


Last week, the 100th episode of The Lede was published. This week, for episode 101, hosts Jerod Morris and Demian Farnworth decided to celebrate.

To honor the occasion, not only do they have a musical gift for you, they also have a special guest host on hand to serve as the Voice of the Audience.

And it kicks off with a bang — one Jerod was reluctant to participate in.

Remember a few episodes back (right here) when Demian wrote that song for the fictitious band “Jerod Morris and the Spongebags?”

(Use that link above to listen to Demian speak the lyrics at the 4:45 mark, or scroll down to the transcript to read the lyrics.)

Well, listener demand and incessant peer pressure finally won the day, and Jerod actually recorded himself performing the song.

But it wasn’t to a dubstep beat.

No, Demian took care of that. Jerod, instead, delivered his own interpretation more appropriate for a man from the Lone Star state.

And just for good measure, an actual professional performed it as well … because why not?

So here is Jerod and Demian’s “gift” to you, dear listener: the mp3 files for each version of When the Vest Comes Off (Ooh La La).

Open them in a new window to listen privately, but do not, under any circumstances, share them publicly. If anyone involved in running Rainmaker.FM knows they exist, there may not be a Lede #102. Thank you. :-)

Okay, now that’s out of the way, let’s get on to more serious matters: like whether Demian would rather jump into the ocean or a swimming pool.

That is but one of the many intriguing questions posed to Demian and Jerod by guest host Jonny Nastor of Hack the Entrepreneur. Others include:

  • What is your favorite concert experience?
  • What would you be doing if you were not creating online content?
  • If you could have dinner with one person, who would it be and what would you serve?

For this last question, Jerod mentioned that he would serve his apparently delicious roasted brussels sprouts. And since he shot his mouth off and promised to include the recipe, it’s in the show notes on Rainmaker.FM.

There isn’t much more prefacing necessary for this episode. If you come looking for in-depth content marketing advice, you’ll be disappointed.

But if you’re up for a fun three-way conversation that gives you unique insight into who Demian and Jerod are as professionals, people, and friends, then you should enjoy this week’s episode of The Lede.

Then, next week, it’s right back to content marketing. They promise. <img src="×72/1f609.png&quot; alt="
