This year has been a banner year for HoptologySD in the sense that I’ve spent a lot of time branching out and trying to meet other folks who talk about and cover the Craft Beer scene here in San Diego. I’ve made a lot of new friends as the months have rolled along and none of those have been better than the guys at ThreeBZine.Com. You probably remember Cody, one-half of the ThreeBZine podcasting duo, who was kind enough to contribute to my series on craft beer snobs and craft beer geeks. However, I had not had the opportunity to engage with the other half, the musical half, of ThreeBZine.com, and that is the one of a kind, Dustin Lothspeich.
In my estimation, Dustin is a modern day renaissance man. Not only is he a podcaster, he’s a writer of both words and music as well as a vocalist and guitarist for several local San Diego bands. As someone who has zero musical ability, other than singing every thrash metal song ever written, I’ve always been insanely envious of musicians. A strange thing about my relationship with Cody has been that more often than not, Dustin and I had not had the opportunity to meet on my appearances on the ThreeBZine podcast. Well, I had to rectify that immediately and I wanted people to have the opportunity to get to know Dustin better, so he was very kind when he agreed to be the first victim, errr… guest to be interviewed by me, here at HoptologySD.com.
I’m thrilled to present the interview I did with Dustin of ThreeBZine.Com, Old Tiger, Diamond Lakes, Boy King, and I’m pretty sure he was also in Motley Crue and Poison at some point as well.
First a quick thanks for agreeing to do this, you and Cody with be my first interviews on the site. Hopefully it goes well and I don’t make a mockery of internet journalism. If that’s even possible. First, I wanted to ask how you got involved in the ThreeBZine Podcast?
“”A mockery of internet journalism” — LOL even the use of the word “mockery” and the fact that all of those words are spelled right, puts you several steps above most others in the field. haha
