Brave Motel

Stay A While

Brave Motel was a leisurely podcast started by 4 friends. After a strong initial run and a brief hiatus, it returned as a hangout/therapy session for 3 guys and some guests. Now we're back as the flagship show on an emerging podcast network.

Go See A Show is a response to the lack of promotion in San Diego's local radio scene. We felt artists should have an outlet to get their content and performances out to as many people as possible. 

Give It To Me Straight is an exploration of why we do the things that make us who we are. Who needs therapy when you have the unending void that is the internet?

Give It To Me Straight - Samantha

Right up top, my dog, Diva, is in the room walking around while we're recording. I talk to her a lot and I'm sorry. Sam is  good sport, though. She talks about committing to photography as a career. Sam also talks about her insecurity regarding her voice, which I can definitely relate to. Sam is a really cool person and I enjoyed this session with her.

Give It To Me Straight - Christian

Christian's episode was the first recorded following the Vegas round table. He was actually one of the first people considered for this show and we had a really solid chat, even if it was a short one. Christian talks about his creative process when he draws and his tendency to draw puns. He also opens up about how he tends to take on too much at once out of excitement, often to his detriment. Overall, he's pretty self aware and really cuts to the core of his answers to the prompts. At the end we talk about one of my favorite things he created, The Time Drunks.

What Happens In Vegas Pt. 2

Our Vegas roundtable continues this week. We wrap up Silvio's interview and get into Amanda's. She does a great job of setting the tone for my original vision for this show. Erich is a little quiet because he refused to stay close to the mic, but I don't think it should be too big a deal.

Also, sorry for screwing up the email and twitter in the outro again. That'll be fixed next episode. The email is and the twitter account is @BraveMotelGITMS

What Happens In Vegas Pt. 1

This is it! The first episode of the show that restarted it all. Brave Motel is back and bigger than ever largely due to the idea that eventually became Give It To Me Straight. It feels good to be podcasting again.


Today's episode is the first of a multi-part group interview. A last minute decision to bring some recording equipment on a group trip to Vegas resulted in 6 friends exploring the things that brought them to where they are as people.
