Dana Gould, Beth Stelling, Robin Ince and Susy Kane join host, Dave Holmes.

Susy Kane wants to plug The Missing Hancocks, a BBC radio series she did recently that’s now available on CD. Susy recommends the Casting Call Woe Tumblr, which posts real actual casting notices from the web - "Stunning actress needed to play a naked dead body. No pay" sort of thing.

And finally, Dave Holmes is on Twitter @DaveHolmes and currently has a TV show running on Ovation, called American Canvas at LA’s Meltdown Theatre on the second Friday of every month. Dave would like to recommend Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth’s new memoir, Girl In A Band.
