It’s our 50th show!  Luckily our guest was Donut Friend owner and drummer of Drive Like Jehu Mark Trombimo, who brought us glorious donuts.  Also in attendance are previous guests Stoney Sharp, Dave Kloc, and a special drop in by Deanna Rooney.  We have brand new Jonah Raydio shirts from artist Dana Lechtenberg.  Not just one but two new Jonah Raydio shirts.  Don’t forget that Jonah Raydio is doing a live show at Cinecave at Lost Weekend Video for SF Sketchfest.

Adam wasn’t there for this episode, and he says that means it’s probably a lot better than when he IS there.  Anthony Jeselnik was there, as well as The Indoor Kids, Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon, and previous guest Dave KlocMatt Mira called in, and they all got wasted.  Enjoy.

Henry Owings, founder of Chunklet magazine and writer of The Indie Cred Test, is our guest on Jonah Raydio.  Also hanging out is one of our favorite people, former guest Ben Goetting!  We actually did this episode a couple weeks ago and even with my notes I can’t remember what we talked about.  What I can tell you is to check out former guest Tony Thaxton’s podcast Feliz Navipod, and if you love The Beach Boys and Beastie Boys you’ll love The Beachie Boys.  This link is NSFW, and I will not explain what it is, Noisy Michelle.

DISCLAIMER : In today’s episode of JonahRaydio Co-Host and lovable cut-up Neil “Nails” Mahoney refers to a collection of art zines by an artist by the name of Mike Giant. In describing the two-word titles of these zines, he used the word “Solipsism” to describe how if you swapped the first sound of the words, it would make a funnier title, i.e. “Flood Bart” becomes “Blood Fart”. This incorrect usage of Solipsism was due to Mr. Mahoney’s nursing of a baby bottle full of Bourbon.
Solipsism is the philosophical/metaphysical concept that one cannot be certain anything exists outside your own mind. The word Mr. Mahoney meant to use was “spoonerism”.
We regret this distraction may prevent some listeners from enjoying today’s episode, or worse, promote the incorrect usage of Solipsism, but we we will strive to be better podcasters, men, and U.S. citizens in the future.
