“Mommy, where do Scenecasts come from?”“Well honey, just like Santa, host Collin Wade Monk has a secret workshop. Instead of the North Pole though, it’s an old house off Nolensville Rd. where he lives with his little helpers, but don’t tell that to the INS. Collin Wade Monk doesn’t have a sleigh like Santa, he just drives his 1987 Horizon all over town looking for unsecured wireless networks, so he can upload his audio joy (and 9/11 conspiracy videos) to all the good little Nashville Scene listeners, “Oh look honey, I think there’s a little surprise in your Podcasts folder.”
“Wow, Mom, listen to this week’s episode—Bobby Bare Jr.’s Young Criminal Starvation League, Solomon Burke, Codaphonic, The Corb Lund Band, Sean Reefer, Eric Bachmann, Grayson Capps, Catfish Haven, Luke Doucet, Of Montreal, Magnolia Electric Co., Helevtia, Station Myth, The Little Ones, French Kicks, and Built to Spill. Thanks, Mom. You’re the best.”
“Spread The Love, Timmy.”

As an alternative to updating Windows Media Player, a .mp3 version of the Scenecast is available above. And, of course, Apple's iTunes supports .m4a files for both Windows and Macintosh platforms.
