YouTube’s DJ Cummerbund, Author Mike Martin, and the Rage2Rainbows Founders on The Backpack

Episode Description

The Mystery of More Effective Protests Set to Music! On this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone, we'll talk with YouTube star DJ Cummerbund, mashup and remix artist extraordinaire. His mixes are legendary! He’ll combine Metallica with Stevie Wonder, or Iron Maiden and Judas Priest with WHAM. Kerry was especially impressed with his poignant mega mashup “Blurry in the USA,” featuring Miley Cyrus, Puddle Of Mudd, Jay-Z, and lots more people you’ll definitely recognize. You'll also meet Canadian mystery writer Mike Martin, author of the “Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series.” We’ll talk with Mike about how he’s always been a writer (even while holding down many different jobs over the years), and how he made the leap from freelance writer to mystery novelist.

Rounding out the show are Emily Weltman and Madison Butler. We’ll talk with these two agents of change about starting Rage2Rainbows, a service that helps you make donations in honor of your haters to organizations they’d hate! Their goal is to make the world a safer place, so they support organizations who help victims of racism, violence, bigotry and bullying. We’ll talk with them about making a positive difference.
