The True Meaning of BSing
Sean K = me, Sean Kneese. I originally started this podcast as simply a space for traditional interviews with artists and other creative types. As I started bringing on increasing numbers of diverse guests, the show organically developed its own theme: I converse with people who think and live outside the box and are pursuing their creative and intellectual passions. They are non-conformists: people who go against the grain and follow their own path. I also like to provide a platform for opinions that aren't often heard in the mainstream media, and prefer to keep a conversational feel to my interviews. I enjoy talking to all different kinds of people from all walks of life and I hope that my podcast can show that we all have more in common than we think, even if it might not always seem that way on the surface.

In this episode of BS'ing with Sean K, Sean Kneese talks to poet, author and punk rock vocalist Tohm Bakelas. Tohm has been involved in the NJ punk and hardcore scene for over a decade. Some of the bands he has been a member of include Permanent Tension and Four Fingers. More recently he has been writing and performing spoken word poetry and has published a book entitled "Orphan Road", a collection of poems and short stories. Tohm talks about his experiences performing his spoken word at open mics and poetry readings and why he gravitated towards poetry in the first place. He reads some excerpts from his book "Orphan Road". Sean also talks about some of his own music and spoken word poetry and reads a piece he wrote entitled "I Enjoy the Ride" at the end of the episode.
