Here it is, Episode 1 of Podioslave Tattoos the Earth! To kick things off, we invite some friends to talk about where it all started: the original Tattoo the Earth Tour back in 2000. We’re joined by Scott Alderman (TTE Creator), Kevin Lyman (Warped Tour Creator), Naomi Fabricant (2000 Tour Press/Production), Fran Strine (2000 Tour Photographer), and Mike Bellamy (2000 Tour Tattoo Artist). Each guest gives us their perspective regarding TTE, all that went on behind the scenes, and even some wild tour stories (flash floods, concussions, sandstorms and so much more).
