So it all went wrong this time. Our guest, Rob Schrab put in the wrong address to his GPS and ended up 40 miles away from the studio. We were backed up against our deadline date so we needed to record one to go up today. So we started recording without him, actually called him and did sort of an interview while he sat in traffic. Then Jonah hung up on him and Rob called back and threatened to cut all of Jonahs close ups when he directs MST3K. It was really funny and worked out well and with a great game in the second act of the show we were back on top of the world with forty minutes of a great podcast we had salvaged from the ashes.
Then the recorder failed.
So we made another one and thats what you’re getting. Rob wouldn’t pick jp when we called back. Neil cheated in the game by using all Jonahs successful answers from the first, now lost, round. We talked band feuds. It was a real experience.

This week writer, producer, North Carolinian and old friend Emily V Gordon comes by. Spoiler warning for The Streets 2004 Album “A Grand Don’t Come For Free”. We talked a bunch of stuffs and boy howdy was it a swell time.
We talk talking with friends, taping down man boobs, NIN throwback ticketing techniques. We caught up on what Emily’s playing these days and Jonah recommends the game Florence and the old webisodes of Emilys old podcast The Indoor Kids(since removed from the internet). We go over what not to say in a submission email and Emily reveals her reasons for hating “the healing properties of Sugar Rios”.
Oh and it was Yamishiro

“[I’m a]better ping pong player than a slam poet.”- Sage Francis
Very Podcast this week. Sage Francis and B. Dolan, separately amazing road warrior MCs and together THE EPIC BEARD MEN supergroup you’ve been waiting for, came and sit down with Jonah, Cash, and a commute harried Neil Mahoney. We talk how Malaysian food is the cuisine of the future, how the two of them have been working to keep their shows safe spaces, Scribble Jam, the periodic table of hip hop elements, the fun of doing “fantasy rap”, and we go deep on how Slam Poetry is a system that can be manipulated. Fascinating stuff from fascinating guys. Myself, I was a little starstruck. We didn’t play a ton of music on this show, but please check out both Sage and B. Dolan, separately and together

Mahonaraydio is what happens when Jonah has some MST3K-duties and we still have a podcast to put out. Some great music on this episode!
We talk Chicago, what worked and what didn’t work. We talk games that you submitted that we didn’t get until after the show. We talk Spirit Airlines and the beginning of a blood feud between us and them that will go for centuries. We talk the proper care of your dark chocolate peanut butter cups.
New Jonah Raydio next week

Sorry so overmodulated. We tended to shout cause we were so excited! It didn’t sound any better live!
Warning, it turns out when you have an antagonistic podcast, you get a antagonistic audience.
John “Jughead” Pierson from SCREECHING WEASEL and EVEN IN BLACKOUTS got attacked by a wild boar. He gets into the yin/yang of Screeching Weasel, and what then yin gets up to when the yang isn’t around, his experiences with Green Day and Blink 182, and his theater gigs. A guy kept bringing Jonah PBRs. All Time Champion Guest Dave Lyons came thru and flew in to sing “Veronica Hates Me” with Jughead. Jughead also brought games and gift and we got into that. A few folks attempted “Slogans” with Jughead and Jonah finished it up with his own vocalizing on “Peter Brady”.

And a big thanks to all those who came out. A big “go f*ck yourselves” to whoever bought the Malort.
