Geeks and Beats Podcasts, Episode 177: A Piece O’ Drake

What if you could own a piece of your favourite song? And you get a piece of the musician’s royalty cheque? The more people bought or streamed the track, the richer you get. That’s the idea behind Vezt by veteran rock music manager Steve Stewart. We caught up with him literally as he was getting ready to board his plane to find out how Alan’s going to pay off his house thanks to a steep investment in Drake’s next big track and how Michael’s going to keep in Facebook’s good books thanks to all those copyright violating Dad Videos he’s making.

As for an explanation of the artwork: Schmooze, the elder of my English bull terriers, was sleeping under the desk of the studio during the podcast. She snores.
