Five Years of Guerilla Podcasting Complete & Commemorated!

by angryhippie

As many of you may know, the podcast just celebrated the 5th anniversary of our inaugural episode. It was on November 9th 2007 that the very first episode went live. So many rants and rages later, I stand with fresh ink on my arm to commemorate five amazing years of podcasting and reaching out to anyone around the globe who is willing to listen to this angry hippie screaming into a microphone for an hour, hour plus often. With jokes though…

The show has really come along way and I feel I too have grown through this journey right along with it. So today, thanks to the extremely talented Sylvia Meza of Area 51 tattoos in the Springs, I was able to immortalize this 5 year feat in a very personal way. Sylvia designed me a tattoo that is more breathtaking and awesome than I had envisioned in my head.

Given that I have always felt that the show was sort of reporting from the trenches of the culture/class wars in this country in a Guerilla Broadcasting type of journalistic style, I wanted to have a Gorilla swinging off of a radio tower (leaning to the left of course ;) ) outfitted and ready for combat with a megaphone in his hand! Naturally the long hair and hippie glasses are nods to me, and the five sound waves emanating from the tower signifies the five years of the show.

What a long, strange (and often infuriating) trip it has been! But I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Now it is apart of me in a whole new, and non-metaphoric way…and I wouldn’t trade this stunning ink for anything in the world either. Though some painkillers would be nice…
