  1. Russell W says:

    Or, since podcasts can be broken into chapters, maybe the band’s songs could get chapter breaks in the podcast?

  2. Louie says:

    That No Doubt news item is ironic, but only if you are familiar with Adam Carolla’s story involving his one interaction with the band while they were guests on Loveline. Anyone know what I am referring to?

  3. Zombeast says:

    I really love the show I especially like the music.

  4. Boy Racer says:

    White Wires – Where have you been all my life?

  5. John G. says:

    Fuck, I made that last comment before I got to his plane crash story. Holy fuck, man.

  6. John G. says:

    Holy shit, Lance’s story was so nuts. Love the show, Jonah.

  7. Kevin says:

    Great interview
    Really glad my band’s song was played and my “aggressively self-deprecating” email was appreciated.

    Anyone interested in Sirloin Sunrise cane find us at

  8. Mike says:

    Love the show, only complaint: I think links to the bands would be amazing right here on episode pages.

  9. Louie says:

    I’m curious to see how long Jonah will keep up with this episode titling scheme.

  10. Kevin says:

    Great ep, Jonah! I really dug the early 90’s alt-rock trip down memory lane. Grasshopper was/is a member of Mercury Rev. And, I think Lance might be referring/confusing him with/to Microwave who was R.E.M.’s longtime guitar roadie..At least that’s my theory.

    If you guys have more guests like this, this is really going to turn into something great. Hopefully Lance will put positive bugs in the ears of others.
