003 | Documentary Filmmaker Brent Hodge is SOMEWHAT into collecting vinyl

In episode 003, Bryan talks with his friend, and one-time collaborator, the filmmaker Brent Hodge (A Brony Tale, I Am Chris Farley). Brent discusses his newest obsession/“somewhat”-- collecting vinyl. As of recording, he’s only 5 records in, but his interest in music’s role in our lives, his ideas around being a fanatic and leaning into it via one's hobbies, and his plans to bolster his own collection of records makes for a great conversation.
