Podcast :



Maynard James Keenan is a singer, songwriter, producer, winemaker, and actor, best known as the vocalist for Grammy Award-winning rock band Tool, Puscifer, and A Perfect Circle. Look for TOOL’s catalog coming to streaming services on August 2 and their new album “FEAR INOCULUM” releases on August 30.

The episode opens with a little banter between Joe and Maynard talking about Falcons being used as tools to stop birds from feeding on the grapes in his vineyard.  While Joe was in Italy they used falcons to keep pigeons away from diners.

Maynard is posting live that Tool is releasing a catalog of songs via digital and streaming formats on Spotify and Amazon this Friday August 2nd.  The new album is called Fear Inoculum.  

Arizona had a lot of rain this year which affects a number of things including animals, farms, and more importantly the fire season.  Joe recalls his family’s experience with evacuating during the fires last year. He says that one of the biggest takeaways from the event was recognizing that you are not your things.

The conversation shifts to Maynards idea that he has been thinking about…  He feels that everyone in the world is divided and going down the rabbit hole of click bait.  The concept is to have a show where they find six people from very different backgrounds and find something to have a discussion about that they all agree on.  People who can agree to disagree about a number of other topics, but can come together one a topic and recognize that while we may have all of these other differences we are still all one when it comes to the human race.

Maynard also notes that the process of likes validating or not validating you effects the same part of your brain that heroin does.  If you can’t go 10 minutes without checking you phone, you are addicted.

This takes the conversation down a the path of technology and its effects on us, our society and the next generation.  

Maynard tries to bring the conversation back to the idea of a show that brings people together for a genuine healing moment.  Both agree that in order for that to happen it would need to be done on an indy basis. Producers and corporate greed would destroy anything like this idea.

The flow of the conversation is very smooth from topic to topic and the guys touch on a number of individual topics briefly before ending up with making hard cider on Maynards vinyard. His hard cider can only be found at either the vineyard, cellars, or Puscifer store.

Maynard practices Jiu Jitsu and Muy Thai in his limited spare time.  

Maynary had a water witch find the place for his well on his farm, they were 4 for 4 so far so…

Episode wraps with Joe joking about the plethora of things that Maynard is up to.  Says he thinks to himself that he is doing a lot of things, then he sees what Maynard is doing, and feels like he’s not doing near as much as he is!

In this world…there is so much posturing, there is so much disconnected behavior, we just need people to reconnect with their loved ones.

When you replace recognition with attention it fucks you up.

The problem is the implementation of an idea in a stupid way. It’s not the skateboard, its trying to ride it on the edge of a building!
