Crate Diggers is a music / interview podcast created and hosted by Portland DJ and multimedia artist Verbz and engineered by his brother, producer Mark Steez. Crate Diggers uses vinyl records as a jumping off point for conversations between artists. Inspired by comedy interview podcasts, Crate Diggers brings that lighthearted approach to getting to know artists, collectors, and other cool people. Guests bring some of their favorite records to play and share their connections to the music. DJs, producers, MCs, singers, musicians, bloggers, writers, all share their stories on Crate Diggers.
