    No, your eyes have not deceived you.

    As some of you might remember, we held podcasts with some regularity for three or four years, but have not released one in about two years. That hiatus ends today with the long overdue Episode 6. For this podcast, "we have a very special guest for you this evening..."

    Our special guest is Mike Shinoda!

    While we originally intended to celebrate the ten-year mark for The Rising Tied and the 15-year birthday of Hybrid Theory, our pre-recorded podcast with Mike Shinoda turned into a wide ranging discussion. In about eighty minutes, we covered a vast array of topics, including but not limited to the band's upcoming 7th album, Mike's thoughts on 'recreating Hybrid Theory', his perspective on Linkin Park shows and other special insights into the music industries. Mike also took the time to answer some of the most frequently asked fan questions. It's one hell of a podcast, and we are incredibly excited to share it with you.

    In the past, we streamed our podcasts live and provided a recording afterward. However, we felt a pre-recorded podcast would give all us the freedom to broach a number of topics and provide as much new content for you as possible. We hope that you enjoy listening to the podcast as much as we enjoyed doing it, and as always, we thank you for the support you have given to this site and for continuing to participate in this community. Without you, podcasts like these would simply not be possible.

    We would like to extend a huge thank you to Mike Shinoda for taking the time to chat with us, and we would also like to thank Mike's publicity/management team for coordinating with us for this podcast. We are very grateful.

    Listen to LPA Podcast Episode 6 featuring Mike Shinoda below.

    Note: This podcast was recorded December 7th 2015 and features LPA Team members Derek, Joe, Louis, and Kevin.

    I think this has to be the best interview/podcast featuring Mike that I've ever heard. He is seriously such a cool and down to Earth guy. I have a lot of respect for him for taking his time out to do this. Thanks, Mike!

    Awesome job, guys! We finally did it. :lol:

    I hope everyone enjoys this. Definitely worth a listen.

    Wow cool. I remember you guys having a podcast! That was what got me into this site in the first place! You guys described your experience at a concert in I believe Camden, New Jersey (it was the podcast that discussed fat, drunk, hobo Santa Claus). At least, I hope it was you guys who made that podcast!

    The direction of the new album sounds really, really promising. More attention to lyrics/vocals early on is fucking great news.

    This. This really excited me. Having the music form around the song, rather than the other way around, can lead to nothing but great things.

    Maaan, Shinoda sounds passionate. :)

    That's just what the sound of Joe's voice does, I guess

    The Hunting Party will be easy to top in my opinion. I'm excited about this though. For 15 years they've made instrumental demos then added vocals, this approach is exciting. I hope there's a lot of Mike/Chester harmonies on this album.

    Also, when have they made something that sounds like Portishead? The scratching?

    If they're recording a bunch of vocals over acoustic guitar/piano, I'm almost more excited for the demos than whatever the finished thing is.

    The hidden track on the "Hybrid Theory" EP and a lot of the Xero demos have always reminded me of Portishead and trip-hop has shown up in little bits and pieces throughout LP's discography.

    Listening! Haha sounds great to hear that the first people that are listening to the podcast are considered as 'probably the core fans' by Mike.. never felt that way about myself as a Linkin Park fan. 5 minutes in I already love the cast.

    Thanks for the great effort!

    That was super cool! The only question I wished would've been asked is why there wasn't a 'making of' for THP! Still a fantastic podcast/interview regardless. Mike is such a cool guy, and thanks to Derek, Joe, Kevin, and Louis for all that y'all do for this site! Without y'all the community wouldn't be what it is today! I'm just genuinely proud to be a LP fan. The music, members of the band, and 'hardcore' community all really appeal to me. Thanks again you guys, and congratulations on a fantastic podcast.

    P.S.- Sorry if that doesn't flow very well, but it's nearly 1 AM :chuck:
