This week I am joined Walter Schreifels of Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits, Rival Schools, Dead Heavens, Vanishing Life, Youth Of Today, Walking Concert, World's Fastest Car, Project X, Warzone, Moondog, that might be it... We discuss the past, the future & Germany.
I got to speak to Jess Coppens today. She sings for a great new band by the name of Mirror Eyes. We discuss homosexuality and technology. But not how they relate to each other. I'll probably talk to someone else about that. Sounds a little tough on this one, I apologize.
Check out Mirror Eyes!
Jason Chatfield, Australian cartoonist currently living in NYC, keeps me busy in traffic. We discuss geography and imperialism. Neither of which I'm qualified to discuss. I think I need to have paid more attention in school.

Christopher Roach helped pass the time today by discussing his start in comedy and how he landed a role on Kevin James' new CBS sitcom, Kevin Can Wait. We also discuss some writing theory that I absolutely butcher and need to call Bryan McKenna for help. Special thanks to Bryan for this one.
Matt Pryor talks to me about kids, bands, and opinions. I used the Oxford Comma. I really hate writing these blurbs. I would rather just post the thing. I honked my horn and got honked at. Drive safe out there, folks.
More from Matt at Nothing To Write Home About.
Chris Kluwe spoke to me about his career in the NFL and American Ninja Warrior. Chris was essentially fired from the NFL for speaking out about same sex marriage in 2013. He has written two books, plays in a rock band, Tripping Icarus, and has given a Ted Talk. And we barely even touch on that stuff. I hope to have him back on one day, for sure.
Josh Berwanger of The Anniversary and the eponymously named, Berwanger, took some time out of family dinner to be a part of my daily commute. We discuss his inability to play rock & basketball simultaneously, and other stuffs.
Check out Josh's band Berwanger!
So stoked to have Michelle Gonzales on the podcast. Michelle played in the hardcore band Spitboy in the 90's and her book, The Spitboy Rule: Tales Of A Xicana In A Female Punk Band, was published last year and is an absolutely wonderful read. We spend 40 or so minutes being nostalgic about touring before smart phones and we discuss some race & class issues.
Adam Lazzara from Taking Back Sunday talks about recording the new album and body issues with me. Still hate writing these things. Listen to the podcasts. Give it a five star rating on iTunes while you're at it.
