About this Episode

Back in the 90s, I hosted a prank call fan site on my parents' dialup internet service provider. We were allocated about 20 megabytes of space, so I learned HTML and created a few early pages, one of which reviewed prank call tapes, through which I would trade for more. My collection was pretty huge, you can see the archive here: https://tinyurl.com/yc2mdk9d

One of my favorite tapes was the Phone Losers of America's first cassette. I became online friends with the group's creator, Brad Carter (a.k.a. the RBCP, a.k.a. the Red Box Chili Pepper). I followed his YouTube channel and years later he discovered my music independently. When I commented on one his videos, he wrote me back, and I reminded him that I was the same Lars from the 90s. On this week's episode, we talk about his run-ins with the FBI, how he has monetized his brand and even the origin of "Horris". Don't miss it! Super proud of this episode. This dude has been doing this for almost 30 years! That's awesome!!
