The Modern Drummer Podcast with Mike and Mike

In this episode Mike and Mike crack open the September issue and talk about cover artist Nate Smith, whose groove-drenched videos have racked up millions of views. The education segment focuses on Jim Riley’s latest article, which focuses on a step-by-step method for developing the half-time shuffle. Up for review is a set of heavily hammered, dry, and trashy Hamer series cymbals from Istanbul Mehmet. After fielding a few listener questions, the show concludes with picks of the week.
