Hey there, hi there, ho there! Welcome to the wild, wonderful and wacky Silly Pancakes podcast description - guys…you’re in for a real treat. Really.

Seriously - a real, tangible treat.

I’m a liar. I have no tangible treats - what I do have is an audibly satisfying podcast featuring the mega-talented musician and all around good guy, Ned Durrett. I’ve wanted to have him on for a while and we finally found the time to sit down and chat.

This episode is great! I promise. Pinky promise.

Ned and I chat at length about growing up around music, starting a band with best friends, love, relationships, creativity, stupidity, adolescence and everything in-between.

You’ll learn something from this episode. I’m pretty sure I did…I don’t know what though. I’m sure it’ll crop up when I’m 50. Yeah. Ooof - 50.

Finally, please support Ned and the Dirt - they’re a terrific band and you can help them make their next record! Check out their Kickstarter and pitch in whatever you can. This album is going to be great!
