The Conversation Hat Podcast – Se2ep13, Tom Gaskell

[soundcloud url="" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /] What would you like to be the patron saint of? Have you ever seen a ghost? All this and more on this week's episode, featuring Cambridgeshire musician & producer Tom Gaskell. Tom is a music producer, who also sings in funk-rock outfit DAFM, and plays bass in psychedelic rock band BansheeVa.

This episode features the sketch Get The F*ck Out Of The Road written by Si Pettit, featuring himself, Roman and Liam.



Tom was one of the first guests on Stabbed Panda Presents, representing his band, DAFM. The Lightning Round in SPP is a very early prototype of what would become The Conversation Hat Podcast - KNOWLEDGE. If you're ever in Cambridge around the Christmas period you can catch the annual Christmas is a time to get F*CKED!! event, which DAFM are destined to perform. You can listen to that interview in full over here.

We liked Lauren's art work for this episode so much that we decided to add the icons to the podcast's Redbubble Store. This adorable chap is available on pillows, mugs, scarves, shirts, hoodies, phone covers, on art prints, bags, stationary and much more. Redbubble's merch is all reasonably priced and buying from them helps out the Conversation Hat as well. Which is, hopefully, something you're really up for.
