The Tone Mob Podcast

The year was 2015. Show host Blake Wyland intended to start a podcast where he took a deep dive with his guests from the guitar world to explain their rigs. What happened was that, but also a whole lot more. The show quickly evolved into discussions about people's lives. Guitars, pedals, amps, etc. are the central hub of the show, but it really is more about the PEOPLE behind all of it. Both the musicians who use the gear, and the folks that create these magical tools of expression. You can expect chats about songwriting, favorite bands, family, loss, addiction, conspiracy theories, philosophy, and most of all....... food. This podcast goes all over the place. Come take a ride.


episode 332: "I Thought I Was Dying" w/ Jo Braga of Pedal Playhouse

Jo Braga is the insanely talented and very hard working creator behind the YouTube channel Pedal Playhouse. It is one of the most entertaining and unique viewing experiences in the guitar gear content world.

What started out as a very light and bouncy episode took a very unexpected turn when Jo told me her full story.

That said, her insane positivity and bubbly personality somehow still managed to generate laughs while we walked down a fairly dark path momentarily.

I think you'll really enjoy this episode, and please make sure to check out her work on her channel at this link:
