Episode 26: Collector's Club with Kristian Sorge (Record Nerdz Podcast)

Host of the Record Nerdz podcast Kristian Sorge joins me to discuss his 5,000+ collection of records, his urge to collect only the rarest forms of any particular album, digging at the world's largest record fair in Holland, and his day-job as a casting director, working on films like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist." We also talk about specific rare releases in his collection from The Misfits, Run The Jewels, Shellac and more, plus we find out what on earth a "vinyl hot stamper" is! Follow both Kristian and Record Nerdz on Instagram (@thepunkguy and @recordnerdz, respectively), and find the Record Nerdz podcast on iTunes, Soundcloud or however you listen to podcasts.
