Episode 91: Mike Wiebe

Download

Riverboat Gamblers and High Tension Wires frontman Mike Wiebe finally escaped Austin, Texas to discuss why his incredible bands aren’t more commercially popular, the parallels between his music and comedy careers and what it was like to see Ben Weasel punch women alongside Steven at SXSW. “It’s frustrating sometimes but the goal is to never be bitter,” Wiebe explains at one point—and that type of candid optimism translates into everything Wiebe does onstage from crafting jokes to belting out rock anthems. Inspiring is an understatement.
