This episode brings our listeners another community conversation with a first time candidate. Cate Berger is running to be the state representative of Ohio’s 41st district. We wondered what motivates first time candidates, and if elected, how they can bring change to Montgomery County.

TINO has released his new project Past Due and @TheIzzyRock catches up with him and the backstory of the songs.
TINO is a product of Ohio. Born and raised in Cleveland he moved to Dayton for college and picked up the mic. TINO blends the art of dropping knowledge with modern sounds, and high energy delivery using a myriad of rhyme schemes and unique flows over production ranging from golden era boom bap to trap mixed with soul samples and electronica. TINO has been featured on hip hop mainstay DJBooth (https://djbooth.net/songs/tino-back-in-86
and https://djbooth.net/features/artists-under-1000-3 ), done interviews and/or been featured by numerous Dayton media outlets such as Dayton Daily News, Sound Valley Dayton, and WSYO 91.3 FM.
Our host Libby Ballengee had her first front page story in the Dayton Daily News. Quite the thrill for her! The funny thing was, it was all about mousetraps and ping pong balls. Not the usual ingredients for a front page story, but nonetheless, the piece received lots of comments and praise.
Her accolades were a teeny tiny fraction in comparison to the thrill that our guest today felt as a result of that story. Andy Nick from Real Art, was the true subject, and how he and his team turned a simple 30 second commercial involving mouse traps and ping pong balls into a phenomenon that’s been viewed well over 20 million times and counting.
Andy is also an avid Flyers fan, music lover, video gamer and proud Dayton we are honored to host him on the podcast. In this episode we explore what it feels like to be retweeted by J.K. Rowling, what makes Dayton special, and lots more! Enjoy!
We want to also send a big thank you and shout to everyone who has been supporting our funding campaign at Ko-Fi.com/venuschild. We are providing independent journalism and we are grateful for the support.

Darryl Robbins, the person behind Overthought Musik has been a member of the Motel Beds, an engineer and producer of Guided By Voices, the Boxcar Suite, and Smug Brothers joins @theizzyrock to discuss Overthought Musik.
Years from now when Local Music Day is a long-established event many will wonder how it got its start. Perhaps the best way to explain how is to look at Album from Overthought Musik. In fact, if it wasn’t for Album there most likely would be no Local Music Day. The reason is that the idea for Local Music Day came from wanting to promote Album in a way that also celebrates the best of Dayton. In addition to being the initial point of inspiration for Local Music Day, there are many great things about Album
Comprising of eight songs featuring eight different singers, this unique project from D Robbins brings some of Dayton’s best together. Apart from being some of the best work D Robbins has done, Album is sure to introduce listeners to many great musicians. With each song having its own individual feel it’s near impossible to pick any standout songs. Ask eight different people what their favorite song was and chances are you will get eight different answers. That is the reason why Album from Overthough Musik is so good, it has variety without sacrificing any quality.
Both those already familiar with Dayton’s music scene and those who are not, need to listen to Album. Overthought Musik has put together a work that is simultaneous an excellent example of why Dayton’s music scene is so special and a sample of different local talents. If you still haven’t realized that Dayton’s music scene is something special now is the time to get onboard.
