First off, it's the 50th episode! Who would've thought? It's been a blast putting out 50 episodes, and here's to many more.
This week, we take you to Tattooed Mom's on South Street for our live show as part of the Philadelphia Podcast Fest. Dan talks to new friend Brian Erick of the band The Paper Jets, as well as co-host of the fantastic The Great Albums Podcast. Dan also catches up with show favorite Ben Hughes of the band Night Windows. It's a great night of conversation and acoustic performances.
Host of the "Everything Is Awesome" podcast, Kevin braves the heat, traffic and DNC madness to be in the cool, temperate underground studio to talk with Dan about his almost decade-long run as a podcaster. Dan and Kevin also have the longest conversation about wrestling in 25 O'Clock history. And Dave Matthews Band. The guys talk about their early love of radio and how it influenced them to eventually becoming podcasters, and their excitement for the upcoming Philadelphia Podcast Festival.
From Northeast Philly to Jersey to art school to finally putting together her live band, Emily Mineo's trajectory has been quite a ride. Dan talks to Emily about learning on her dad's Guild guitar, loving Springsteen before it was cool to love Springsteen again, and her love of the Philly scene, particularly Connie's Ric Rac. And her song, "Barbara Streisand" will get stuck in your head in a wonderful way. It's still stuck in Dan's.
