Ali Awan and Dan talk about Ali's nomadic upbringing in Saudi Arabia and Turkey, growing up Muslim in America post 9/11, and how punk rock saved him at the right time. Touring life, recording in his van, a newfound skill in fixing cars, songwriting, and what the future holds are all up for discussion, as well as his involvement with the Philly Holiday Album, benefitting Save Our Stages and Tots for Tots.
Despite a tour-less year, Susan Werner is thankful to be doing alright. Susan and Dan talk about coming up in Philly in the 90s, her new LP, 'Flyover Country', diving into all the different styles of country music, working with uber-talent Mike Brenner as a producer, and growing up on an Iowa farm.
Since they live in the same house, it was easy to get both Maggie and Eric at once. They talk with Dan about what they've been doing to keep busy/sane, Eric's new 'Coop A Loop' album, Maggie's new single, 'Hometown', and everyone learns some fun facts about the octopus.
