The Real Congregation :: Virtual Tours Of Unmapped Cities :: 5/14/13
Despite our best attempts at atlases and map making there are still a few cities that Rand McNally won’t be able to assist you in finding. Come along with your virtual tour guide, Marc With a C, as he leads you through some of these, shall we say, “less traveled” destinations. Some of these places are pretty seedy, but as long as we stay together, we should be okay, right?

The Real Congregation :: We’ve Got You Covered! :: 3/5/13
So, we had a request for a microsode by one Geoffrey Voss. A request that we’d devote thirty minutes to the art of the cover song. The arrangements, how one is chosen, etc. Sir Voss also requested that we have Walt Ribeiro from For Orchestra along for the ride. And that sounded pretty good, but… it just wasn’t enough.
Instead? We’re devoting TWO HOURS to this wide topic, playing you some of the coolest and most interesting interpretations around. Your host, Marc With a C (that’s me), knows that there’s no way to really wrap this episode up in a way that will please everyone, so he’s done his best to merely dip his foot into what is ultimately a very, very deep well. Come along for the ride, featuring an interview with Walt Ribeiro!

The Real Congregation :: Audrey Is A Good Host (Part One) :: 06/12/12
Shortly before the taping of this episode, Marc With a C was ordered by his doctor to go on immediate vocal rest. No joke.
Instead of ending season two of The Real Congregation a few episodes early, he instead enlisted his favorite TTS program to host the show instead. Her name is Audrey, and she is only enable with the facts and playlists that Marc has given her. However, she’s always wanted to be a star, and it’ll be interesting to see where she takes the show.
Due to our faith in how good of a program she is, we saw no need to double check this program before releasing it to you. Audrey is a good host, and besides, what could possibly go wrong?

The new episode of Marc With a C’s podcast, The Real Congregation?
It’s all about Michael Nesmith!
In the world of multimedia, Michael Nesmith is one pioneering badass. Comparable only to the likes of Chuck Norris, Theodore Roosevelt and Bill Brasky, he’s the godfather of MTV, home video and online virtual worlds. Not to mention making four decades worth of brilliant songs and bucking trends. You simply aren’t ready for all of the facts about this genius, nor are you ready for just how far ahead of the curve he remains. But don’t worry, The Real Congregation is going to ease you in, starting with his pre-Monkees recordings all the way up to his relentless solo work… and by the end of the episode, you’ll likely be erecting a statue of Papa Nez in your front yard.
Your host Marc With a C is joined this week by composer (and fellow Nesmith fanatic) Chris Zabriskie. Hear us freak out over every single nuance of Michael Nesmith’s storied history!
