Alright y’all— after 2 exhilarating improvisational explorations on his acclaimed podcast Take Your Shoes Off, it was time to bring the incomparable Rick Glassman into Flow State I knew it’d be a great pod, but I had no idea I’d get to reap the benefits of Rick’s PCS (Podcast Consulting Service) free of charge! I just genuinely love hanging out with this guy so much. It was awesome to hear about the parallels between my approach to doing improvised concerts and Rick’s approach to editing and animating his podcast. Also the narrative freestyle toward the end of this ep had my adrenaline soaring!!!! I think y’all are gonna dig this one— thanks so much for being here and enjoy SHOW NOTES: Sur Jazz’s Portra 400 https://youtu.be/YzLWJOloaTI?si=26AaljZ064nl8OqO https://surjazz.bandcamp.com/album/portra-400 Harry Mack on TYSO - #195 https://youtu.be/Hs5LSHuseL8?si=4eUzeOSgNTmI9xxJ Harry Mack & Lamorne Morris on TYSO - #243 https://youtu.be/A3mHjf6lt-w?si=Qmpj2uSeAdaeMRh- I Am Phenomenal https://youtu.be/pEZCTUymiUw?si=Gi4UA-5nxqCdLS2J Rick Glassman’s Will Smith Monologue on TYSO https://youtu.be/2GjobYxWAmk?si=ZzcvXoZNEYb0dXKB&t=4021 Jim Kwik https://www.jimkwik.com/ Hypest Prom Ever (Guerrilla Bars 25) https://youtu.be/fShjMXWu6kU?t=1122 New Music OUT NOW: https://harrymackofficial.com/listen Timestamps: 00:00:00 Introduction 00:00:47 Podcasting Advice From Rick 00:11:03 Take Your Shoes Off 00:18:49 Struggles with Watching Yourself 00:21:16 Being Cool 00:28:08 Being Willing to Fail 00:31:03 Performance as Play 00:37:53 Focusing on Image vs Being Present (Smile and Be Ugly, Dude) 00:46:20 Visual Contextualization 01:03:34 Pee Break Freestyle 01:07:47 Long Form Freestyling 01:08:52 Three Girls At the Guggenheim Freestyle 01:18:00 Visualizing the Scene 01:22:59 Closing Conversation

Josh Harmon is one of the most unique and entertaining content creators out there today and it was a pleasure to have him as a guest on Flow State! Josh is best known for his Rhythms of Comedy series and for creating live sound effects for scenes from some of your favorite cartoons, TV episodes, and movies. Part of what was so cool about getting to meet him in person and learning about his story was seeing how many parallels we share! From a childhood passion for drumming to forging his own path in online content creation during lockdown, this is definitely a man after my own heart. Hope y’all enjoy and be sure to check out his amazing work!

What’s goin on y’all? We’re back with another episode of Flow State. You probably noticed by now that I’ve been going in hard on new written tracks, and I wanted to take the chance to talk a bit about where that creative impulse came from and how it’s been going. Y’all keep submitting fantastic questions, so this episode we’re also talking about meditation, overcoming self doubt, and how exactly I remember all those random words during freestyles — including during one of the most exciting, high-pressure freestyles of my life… when I got to spit a flow for Ice Cube and the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover, so pop in those ear buds and LET’S GOOOOO! *Wherever You Go, There You Are* by Jon Kabat-Zinn https://bookshop.org/p/books/wherever-you-go-there-you-are-mindfulness-meditation-in-everyday-life-jon-kabat-zinn/19968905?ean=9780306832017 *Contents Under Pressure* https://www.harrymackofficial.com/contents-under-pressure *‘Bounce House’ Car Freestyle* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqGThHzAilw *TMNT Freestyle* https://youtu.be/VH80FTveM_4?si=664RXSvFtDx77ieP 0:55 Releasing Music 8:30 Facing The Pressure 17:35 The Voice Of The Writer 21:00 The Turning Point 24:39 Q1: Mindfulness Practices 33:33 Q2: How To Go From Thinking To Doing 39:59 Importance of Putting Things Out 47:32 Ice Cube Freestyle Reaction 1:05:35 Fan Freestyle 1:11:00 Closing Freestyle
It’s only right that the first official Flow State guest is not only one of my closest musical collaborators, but also someone I feel very privileged to call a friend… the incomparable Sur Jazz!!!! The two of us only really started working together consistently a couple years back, but in that short window of time we’ve managed to live SO MUCH life together— traveling the world, doing shows, and making lifelong memories both on and off the stage. There isn’t a room on earth that Jazz can’t light up with his energy. His musical knowledge is DEEP and ever expanding. Beyond DJing, Jazz’s production skills are top notch (as evidenced by the banger we dropped a few months back called “2024”— y’all know what’s up). The two of us have talked for hundreds of hours off camera but it was awesome to finally sit down and chop it up with Jazz for the pod. Hope y’all enjoy!! 06:40 Life After Tour 09:06 Favorite Things To Cook 11:49 How did we meet? 20:25 The First Show 27:46 Being on the Road 37:21 Living In New York 47:20 Jazz’s dad 53:21 Jazz’s Musical taste 55:39 Producer Influences 58:19 Jazz asking about Harry’s different formats and the energy 1:01:05 Our 4DX Experience 1:07:55 Señor Jazz 1:12:19 Freestyle submission: Throwed Genji 1:18:00 Closing Out 1:19:19 Recap Freestyle
