A debate recently sprouted on Diffuser between two of our columnists, Tim Karan and Chris Kissel.

In a recent piece titled "Will There Ever Be Another Seattle? How the Internet Killed Music Scenes," Mr. Karan asserts that in today's world, the need to actually be physically close to a local music scene in order to experience its aesthetic doesn't exist; the internet has changed the way music is created, distributed and consumed.

Mr. Kissel addressed those thoughts in "The Internet Didn’t Kill Music Scenes -- We Did," and promotes the sentiment that if music scenes are to thrive in this digitally-focused society, we need to return to creating burgeoning -- and local -- record labels.

So, in Episode 006 of Diffuser Radio, we invite the two columnists -- along with Mark Curdo of WCYY in Portland, Maine, and Diffuser's Editor-in-Chief, Chuck Armstrong -- to the roundtable to dissect the conversation.

Additionally, we chat with our friend Matt Sucich about this very topic; who better to talk about local music than a singer-songwriter who is entrenched in the scene of New York City?
