This week we have the talented AF dudes from Reno metal-core band, Salythian. These Reno natives laid some serious rock and roll on us here at Dogwater Studio.  Not only are they seriously accomplished musicians, they’re social media wizards. Listen up to hear how they do the thing they do.

Thanks to the band for being on the show! We had a great time interviewing you three and we’ll be looking out for your upcoming shows. Follow them on Facebook so you can too! Salythian rocks. Literally.

In other news, I would like to give a shout out to Headquarters Bar and to the bands that played Saturday night to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. SWIGS, One Ton Dually, and Riptide Bandits slayed that room and raised $360. If you haven’t visited Headquarters yet, get your tail down there. It is Reno As Fuck in the best way. If you’re inclined to help your fellow Renoites make downtown greater than ever, head over to their fundraiser page. There are some pretty sweet rewards, but really, the only reward I need is HQ staying open so I can see more rad shows like Saturday night’s.

Thankfully we’re not burning and we’re not flooding! Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent natural disasters. We love you. This week we’re joined by JUST Rory and Rick because they told me not to come in. It’s okay because I really *was* scissoring the drummer from SWIGS. You guys were all spot on. ANYWAY! Y’all are in for some great instrumental surf punk, some talk about old naked Satanists, and jokes about me (Kadillac Kim, in case you’re not following along) hooking up with our podcast guests! We even have new interns to make fun of! Don’t worry guys, you too can be like me with enough ambition and a vagina… oh wait. As fun as it is to talk about incest and Satanism, we actually have a band here, so let’s get into some music.

Riptide Bandits have been around for a “really long time”, according to band members. They are so legendary they don’t even need to know when they formed. It is as if they always existed. They might be vampires.

Trevor “Trevair” Snowden – Stomie Hole

Hello and Welcome to the Worst little Podcast!

We have a full house of hosts tonight including a new face, Kadillac Kim (that’s me, hello). Our guest tonight is award winning disabled athlete, Trevor Snowden. Snowden’s larger than life, hope-filled presence is almost too big for the studio. In 1997, Trevor was preparing for a career in extreme snowboarding when he suffered a catastrophic spinal injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Trevor pulls no punches when talking about how his injury has affected his life. In addition to being an athlete, he is an inventor, video game designer, and rapper. Trevor’s full-length album, The Wheelchair Extraordinaire, is available on iTunes. Listen in for a yet to be released track and Worst Little Podcast exclusive from Trevor and learn about what he has in the works or just where to find him singing karaoke.

Over the years Snowden became increasingly unhappy with the standard wheelchairs insurance provided so he invented his own custom wheelchair specifically designed to provide athletes to stay active. This wheelchair is now known as the Trevair. Trevor’s invention has helped him launch a new off- roading sport, wheelchair supercross. Snowden holds the world record for jumping 55ft over cars in a wheelchair and his stunts have been featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
