Audio Urbex

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. When I work on entries there are certain pieces of music that aid me when writing, editing photos, or generally researching urbex locations. They’re great motivators.

Koh Ohtani – Shadow of the Colossus – The Opened Way

Marilyn Manson – A Place in the Dirt

Nine Inch Nails – Right Where It Belongs (Live)

A Silver Mt. Zion – Stumble Then Rise on Some Awkward Morning

…and one more for those who grew up in the 1990’s. I remember being awestruck by the ragtag group of eco-terrorists that broke into the gritty Shin-Ra Mako power plant. It may have inspired me to become an urban explorer later on in life.

Presenting the American Urbex Podcast

American Urbex is a means to motivate myself to get out the door and explore new places. Unfortunately… or fortunately depending on your point of view… there are only so many urbex locations to explore nearby. Because I do not have unlimited funds does not mean that I am limited when exploring new things. One of those new things for me that is cheap to explore is podcasting. I have decided to stick my head out there and see what happens with American Urbex Podcast. There are a few episodes already recorded and I have scheduled release dates set. Using some of the money donated to American Urbex, I have invested into hosting for a podcast.

What is the American Urbex Podcast?

In the first couple of episodes I will be talking about some of the places I have explored. I will discuss some of the background information, the location details, and what motivates me to keep going. Future episodes will address topics such as research methods, preservation, camera equipment, online resources and more. The natural rhythm and flow of the podcast will work itself out as time goes on. So without further ado I present unto the public the American Urbex Podcast.
