Episode 350 – We Threatin Sam Thompson

For our 350th, we have brought in Sam Thompson from Witchpolice Radio, the godfather of Canadian Podcasts. We had to have the best topic to spring on him and we found it. Jered Eames was a musician who had a plan to become famous. Redubbing himself Jered Threatin as a solo artist in 2015, he launched his career with his first single Living Is Dying. And from here, things just got weirder and weirder. With a Go Daddy account and Internet savvy, he created a hype for himself on social media, using dummy record labels, booking companies and management companies, and bought “Likes” on Facebook.

We delve into the Eames’ transformation in Threatin’, the media circus he created for himself and just what happened when his scheming was uncovered.

Sean McGinity

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Todd McGinity

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
