This weeks episode is brought to you by The Cellar at Alturas’ live show booker, sound man, public relations director, and a local musicians best friend, Dennis McDonald . He and his son Uriah stopped by ye olde Dogwater Studios to discuss the ins and outs, highs and lows, ups and downs of a ten year run putting on shows of all kinds. It’s a great story about a passionate music man who is in it for all the right reasons.
We hear tracks from local bad-asses Grimedog, Murderock, Machine Gun Vendetta, KANAWHA, The Grimtones, and Elephant Rifle! Each track we hear comes with a great story, often with a personal, and a touching reason behind the pick.
We love doing these showcase episodes and we hope you enjoy hearing them. Visit the Cellar stage at Alturas and say hi to Dennis, the man making it all happen. Thanks for listening!
…and we are BACK!
Like many of you, we were a little unprepared last week and made an 11th hour decision not to record the show. We do apologize to our scheduled guest, Andii Rose, for the late notice and hope to get her rescheduled later this summer. So in the meantime, do us a favor and check out the link to her FB and music.
This week we were able to utilize the technology of the FUTURE (now)!!!! A big thanks to Zoom Cloud Meeting Pro for being available to help us make this show happen even during a global health crisis. We have recorded a show in disparate locations and STILL had a great time.
Continuing with Week 3 of Women’s March, in a Worst Little Podcast first, we bring you The Grimtones in a live, teleconferenced episode of the show. If you know the show, you know Michelle Belle and Carter Stellon are longtime friends of WLP and co-conspirators with Dogwater Studios.
Originally, they were supposed to come on to promote and upcoming show (with Sit Kitty Sit… who showed us the Zoom app so we can do their podcast in a couple weeks), shich has since been cancelled …. (but according to sources, MAY still happen over the interwebz, so stay tuned). So, we hung out and talked about their release from last December, the
plague COVID-19 health crisis, and how we’ve all been faring in lockdown.
They also treat us to some actual live acoustic music! We get just a couple songs off the CD “Nine Lives” (which you can check out everywhere online), but mostly, we get whole new iterations, unique utterances, of some great Grimtones tunes.
Live we say in the show, we hope everyone out there is staying safe and isn’t in dire need of anything. Most importantly, we do encourage everyone to wash their hands and stay home as much as possible – especially resident nurse, Kadillac Kim! If nothing happens, we did our jobs.
We also wanted to list some important information here too, regarding public assistance if you or anyone you know is facing financial jeopardy during this time. Please avail yourself of these resources:
If you need to apply for Unemployment Insurance, or want to simply find out if you are eligible, officials suggest applying right away and thank you for your patience in this time of need and uncertainty. You can apply at http://detr.nv.gov
If you need help resetting your UIB password or username, please visit http://gov.nv.gov/Forms/Unemployment/
If you want to apply for SNAP (food stamps) or Medical coverage, and the Governor encourages every Nevadan without insurance to apply (so no one is without adequate medical care at this time), please apply for your benefits at http://dwss.nv.gov
Washoe County School District and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada are continuing to serve pickup meals for all children 18 and under at area elementary schools and middle schools. Get more information at https://www.washoeschools.net/Page/14379
Keep your nose clean – and thanks for listening.
Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast. We’re live from the recent, snowy past this week for our third installment of our Women’s March shows with The Grimtones! For the first time ever our awesome intern Shrek got to hang out in studio A with Nick and Kim! Congrats on making it across the hallway, Shrek! This week we’re asking important questions like: are you still friends with her and is she going to listen to this podcast? Tune in for fat, sweaty, German brats, botched circumcisions, and punk rock battle wounds (RIP, Alise’s ankle). But MOST IMPORTANTLY, there’s some badass music from one of Reno’s strongest lady musicians.
The Grimtones spend their days cookin’ hot dogs, snorting kool-aid, fumblin’ about on yee plotter, and recording music. You can see Michelle, Carter, and young Nick, March 31st at Shea’s. They’re currently hard at work recording their new album at Dogwater Studios.
Thanks for the clap, Carter, and thanks to the Grimtones for being such excellent guests! Next week we have guest host Mikey Ramirez from The Shames joining us to interview Rachel McElhiney of Failure Machine and Alise Corbin of SWIGS for our final week of Women’s March shows!
Go see a couple of shows this weekend! Here’s Kim’s picks:
Friday – Acid Teeth // ManifeStatioN // Infecto Skeletons // Grimedog at Sheas. 8PM 21+
Sunday – Moon Hooch w/ The Accidentals & Six Mile Station at The Saint. 8PM 21+

Thanks for listening to another week of us getting drunk with our friends and thanks to Shrek for being hilarious. Life is short and we love ya, Reno.
Helloooooo, Reno, and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! We are joined by a full cast and crew tonight and we’re hella excited to share some time with roaming singer-songwriter Liam Kyle Cahill! We’re catching up on the last week of Reno shenanigans with all our hosts, including our review of Generation We: a HipHOpera. Spoilers: we loved it. We’re also recapping Offbeat Fest, and, oh yeah, we have a musician here! We’re welcoming Liam Kyle Cahill back to the podcast for the first time in a couple of years! He’s got some stuff to say and some exclusive songs to preview here for you! So let’s get into it.
Liam’s sound has been described as Mumford & Sons in a bar room brawl with Bob Dylan at a punk rock concert. Liam hails from Reno and has spent most of the last couple of years touring full time. World traveler and touring musician, Liam has earned the label Nomad By Fate.
Liam’s recent shows have been in Tahoe and Truckee just this past weekend. Stay tuned here for updated show dates!
