Fresh from their hiatus/babycation to Isle Drool, Michelle and Kyle are back in the studio to continue our critically acclaimed music review series. That's right you heard that correctly, the OG tripod is back in action for the first time in what seems like forever—enjoy!

John Mayer is a lot of things to a lot of people. To most, he's that one guy that's kind of douchey that sang "Your Body Is A Wonderland", was ...

Record Store Day draws thousands of line ladened music fanatics from all over the world, and with good reason and intention, but why? Who wants to stand in line (surely not Michelle) to try and get their hands on a record that— wait better yet, who even listens to records anyhow?

The answer, a hell of a lot of people, that's who and the number is growing. Started in 2007 as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the uniqu...

DISCLAIMER: Yes, Kings Of Leon recently released an album, and no you should absolutely not start there if you want to dig into their catalog more. Do us, and yourself a favor and leave that album sitting by itself on the shelf at Wal-Mart.

It's SEASON FOUR! I know right, HOLY $H!T IT'S SEASON FOUR!!! We hope you enjoyed the premiere episode last week—we know Seth did. With Season Four, comes the continuation of our album re...

It's Season 4, and we're BACK—but don't call it a comeback, because you know damn well we never really left! In the Season 4 premiere, we've got Russ in-studio with Michelle and Kyle joining remotely from Babyland—the land of milk, sharts, and tired cries. So bear with us as it might sound like they're on the phone (because they are), and the sound quality you're used to might sound a bit different this go a...

If you asked any of the three of us just a short time ago if we would be wrapping up the third season of our podcast, and working our way into a fourth—we most likely would have just laughed and changed the subject. It's all still a bit surreal that we are able to sit here and do this, and you all want to continue to listen. Without all of you, we wouldn't be where we are today—so thank you, really.

We've decided to wra...

It's not every day that someone mentions something positive and Ohio in the same sentence—but there are a few exceptions now and again. When you think of Ohio you might think of Cedar Point, Lebron James, The O'Jays, Tracy Chapman, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, The Ohio Players, The Black Keys, or Screamin' Jay Hawkins just to name a few.

You typically don't think of something that Ohio has that you really cannot find anyw...

It's 2001 but don't call it a comeback, even though so many did at the time. It had been six years since Michael Jackson had released an album and the anticipation was eating his fans alive. Having endured years of media scrutiny people wondered if he still had it, or if he was going to stay out of the limelight for good.
Not only did Michael still have it, but he also had some things he still needed to get off his chest, a...

If you're a regular listener of the podcast, then you know by now that we've been regularly doing album review episodes where we pick an album, dive in, and tell all of you what we think about what we were forced to listen to. This is one of those episodes and Kyle hit the crew with a curveball this week when he picked Miguel's fourth studio album WAR & LEISURE for everyone to take a listen to.

When you hear the name...

Brand New as a band has been called a lot of things (Emo, Punk, etc.), but one thing you won't find anyone calling them is brand new. Yes, that was a bad dad joke and no, I do not regret it.
Formed in 2000, the band has been around the block a time or two, and they are largely considered to be one of the most influential bands in the early 2000's "emo" music scene—let's be honest here, if you were there, then y...

What do you get when you combine a decent screenplay based on personal experiences, a director with a specific vision for bringing that screenplay to life, and a controlling movie studio just looking to cash in on the latest movie craze?

Simply put, you get what eventually became the cult classic Empire Records. This film is many things for many people but when all is said and done it seems like it's a film that's "just...

Prince was many things to many people. A legend. An icon. An extremely talented musician. A man who lived his life shrouded in mystery. But most importantly Prince was an artist—but not just your average run-of-the-mill artist. Prince knew who he was through and through and never tried to be something that he wasn't. Prince was an artist that refused to be labeled and boxed into anything but what he created for himself.
One ma...

TL;DR: The internet is both equally fascinating as it is a scary place, and Skynet might be closer than we once thought.

The internet as we know it quite literally wouldn't be the internet without the use of algorithms. They're responsible for how we consume what we consume on our favorite forms of social media, and they're pretty much responsible for the ins and outs of how much of the internet works these days—and we&#...

What seems like years ago, but in reality has just been a bit over a year now—everything stopped in its tracks. The world as we knew it stopped. Everything. Stopped. Once the dust settled we knew we were in for what seemed like a long haul, but none of us really knew how long of a haul we were actually in for. The world as a whole would never quite be the same, but the way a global pandemic would affect the music industry as a whol...

TL;DR: Women are music industry badasses.

TL;DR: Women are music industry badasses.

Much like every other industry on earth, the music industry is dominated by old white guys that dictate who goes where, and what happens next. This has always been the case and is still the way things operate today. Throughout musical history, every so often a woman comes along and puts those old white guys in their place by showing them that the industry just wouldn't be the same witho...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
