Are ‘Podcasts’ Electric? The Gary Numan interview (Episode 838)

Gary Numan is an innovator, synth wizard and influence to artists and fans alike. I caught up with him backstage at the Rave in Milwaukee for a longform chat about his career and worldview. Some of the topics discussed:


  • His upcoming acoustic performance experiment/endeavor

  • The brilliant ‘Intruder’ album

  • His feelings about touring (spoiler: he loves it)

  • Thoughts on a handful of specific songs, including “Metal” and “Are Friends Electric?”

  • The notion of “legacy” as it pertains to his career


This was a bucket list interview for me, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you.
