Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith has just launched the first in a series of podcasts, in conjunction with MusicRadar.
Each podcast, which is named "In Conversation" will feature Smith interviewing a famous musician in a casual setting. In the first episode Smith sits down to dinner with Alex Lifeson of Rush. Says Smith about the podcast: "The invisible interview – that’s what I call it. Friends, thoughts, information – why do you do what you do? Admiration, respect, insight and maybe a surprise."
Three episodes of "In Conversation" are currently scheduled for release over the three weeks, but there are apparently plans for Chad to do more interviews later in the year. It's easy to see how this series could be a success. Smith is a very easygoing person, and his jovial and laid-back attitude really help him engage his interview subjects in interesting conversations.
