Zerothreetwo Conversations: Interviews with the Creative Class

Jun 4, 2018

Recording a podcast is a funny thing. On the one hand, it's an artificial environment, when I hang with my friends, we're usually not talking to a microphone. On the other hand, a podcast allows the conversation to focus on what's important. For some reason, moments that may have never been said before bubble out.


This is what it felt like when I interviewed my really good friend Mark "Mcoy" Cortes. He is the founder of the band Rescue A Hero and an early pioneer of skate in Cebu. I've spent countless hours hanging out and making music with the dude, but this conversation still surprised me as he shared what he has been going through over the years. For those of you who know Mcoy, it won't surprise you to know that this episode is full of interesting stories.


The years we played in Rescue A Hero was one of the most fun periods of my life. Sadly, real life eventually took over and we've been in hiatus since 2012. But one day, we'll be back.


In this episode, we talk about the beginnings of Rescue A Hero, his experience in the various skate scenes, what it is like starting a band, and playing music in New Zealand.


Enjoy the episode.
