KXRW Vancouver Presents
The Show for Everybody… But Not Everybody Will Like It.
About The Show
What is Fusebox you ask? Well, Fusebox is a podcast. But not about pods… or casts. Although casts are interesting because you can write and draw on them… except you wouldn’t want a cast because that would mean you broke something which, you know, would really suck.
So yeah, Fusebox is a podcast about stuff other than casts or pods even though our studio is like a pod… sort of. Or not.
Wait, what was the question again?
Meet The Host
Accomplished musician, amature mixologist, and ferret-wrangler are a few of the many talents Marc brings to Fusebox. A native of the West Coast,
fate and good timing brought Marc to the Pacific Northwest where he owns and operates the award-winning audio design studio Fuse. He won an Emmy™ award for music, sound design, and character
voice on NBC’s “Shamu TV”. But just don’t ever ask him about chem-trails… or
Other Host... sort of
Originally from Utah (Yeah, we couldn’t believe it either), Milt started his career as a DJ for a number of long-defunct radio stations across the country… which isn’t a coincidence as Milt likes to point out. His true calling came as a Program Director, but his real passion is as a Board-Operator. Once got stoned and ‘got busy’ with a certain blonde actress… while driving… through Utah… before being pulled over and arrested.
Irreverent without being malicious.
An audio cartoon.
These are just two of the ways we’ve described our show to folks. With witty banter, deft writing, interesting interviews with a wide variety of fascinating guests, and cleverly crafted comedic bits, Fusebox really is The Show for Everybody… But Not Everybody Will like it. But, heck, try us out! Push Play! Drop the needle! Listen and smell for yourself! Besides, it’s only 30 minutes out of your life to give us a listen!
What, you got better things to do?
Once upon a time, 2015 to be exact, there was a sound designer and voice actor named Marc Rose who was having something of a mid-life crisis which evolved into this really stupid idea to do a podcast (clearly, the guy needs a date). Anyway, he went ahead and did it by, somehow, bribing this other dude named Milt Kanes with promises of riches and possibly “donuts” (more on that later), so Milt decided to come on board because, heck, how long could Fusebox last? Three shows maybe? Eleven minutes?
So they did their first show and yet another loser, er… I mean friend, actor, and graphic designer named Jeff Pollard heard the show and offered to brand Fusebox by creating a crispy masthead, spanky tagline, and cooler-than-the other-side-of-the-pillow cover art. Anyway, this Jeff dude also starting writing for the show and creating regular bits and sketches n’ skits and characters and crap like that so that all of Marc, Milt, and Jeff’s loser, er… actor friends could come and play too. And play they did!
Soon, these three idiots discovered they had listeners in England and Ireland and Australia and South Africa and even Russia among other places! The next piece of the puzzle was the addition of Regina Carol to handle the social media crap (and hopefully keep Milt somewhat in line) since neither Marc, Milt, or Jeff really excel or even understand social media… I mean, what the holy heck is “InstaFace” anyway? So this “eleven minute” foray into the podcasting world has turned into an 8 years-200 hundred shows-and-counting odyssey that has left family and friends
scratching their heads.
