In this episode I’m joined by the legendary Bob Schneider, an Austin-based musician, producer, visual artist, and podcaster.
Bob has won 58 Austin Music Awards to date, and has been a resident at the Lonelyland Saxon Pub for 20 years now, where he plays every week.
He is the host of two podcasts, I’m OK You’re OK, I’m Not OK, You’re Not OK, and The Song Club. Bob Schneider’s most recent album Blood & Bones was released in 2018.
I brought in some home-made breakfast tacos, and we went on chatting for almost two hours. We talked about many things, from what kind of food Bob like to eat, how it was to be a musician on the KISS Cruise, how he tried to bury a deer once, to how much music awards mean to him.
Although we didn’t get to eat the tacos in the end from too much talking, we had some great laughs and an awesome conversation.
