Cortex Primer: 000 - The Initiation Ritual

June 01, 2020 — Hugh Manoid

When I first started volunteering at KBVR I was required to play 20 minutes of music as part of my training. So, I took the opportunity to make an insane, brain melter of a mix. The wonderful druids behind the Thriftwicker Audio Society have lovingly resurrected and extended this mix an additional ten minutes. It is now being presented as both the pilot episode of Cortex Primer and an audio ritual of sorts.

Protect your brains.

May 17, 2020 — Hugh Manoid

Tonight on Cortex Primer, hot wax expert Chudley LeMore joins us for a THRILLING expedition to locate the missing laundromat up the street where my wife got a 7% discount.

Will we crack the case, or will this end up like the DREADED family trip to visit Uncle "Screwy" Louie in Cheboygan? So many tomato stains...

Tune out and find in!
