  • I feel cheated…

    because I never heard Reckoning in 1984. In fact, I only had a vague inclination that REM even existed before Losing My Religion. 1984 was right around the time I was really getting into music too. Anyways, the upside is that I am now hearing the absolute gems Seven Chinese Brothers, So Central Rain, and Don’t go back to Rockville for the first time.

  • What is nu-dad rock?

    A fun hang with likable hosts, but who are unapologetically stuck in their nostalgia for alternative rock bands that haven’t been relevant in decades. Great news for superfans who want to spend years exhausting over every REM album, but if you enjoy a more diverse spectrum of music, or feel that an endless parade of Manic Street Preachers isn’t worth hundreds of hours of scrutiny, then you may find yourself alienated by the otherwise admirably committed deep dive format.

  • Always funny and insightful, especially the Radiohead season, in which the context is explored in seriously impressive depth. Though, does context actually matter??? yes. more

  • I laughed and learned all the things

    I really don’t laugh at stuff in any form of media. No clue why. So I was shocked to listen to this podcast and find myself on the verge of tears from the beyond witty banter. You guys are hysterical. I love it. Please do these podcasts forever.
