On this episode we attempt to keep things lighthearted by not to talking about this garbage fire of a year, but we can’t totally avoid it. Garbage fires spread. Nevertheless, there’s some good old fashioned random banter, the censorship bleep joke, and also discussion of an obscure nautical term! Truly this episode has it all. All of those things I mentioned.

Was there supposed to be a 3 month gap between part 1 and 2 of our overlong musical extravaganza? No, absolutely not. Is it worth the wait? Same answer.

Anyway, here we are trying not to sound too pretentious about our favorite music of last decade. It doesn’t go well in that particular regard but stick around until the post-credits if you want to hear some bad Wisconsin accents.

Next episode will be better!

Probably.
