Two pop-punk kids reminisce about seminal groups, both hard and soft. Times have changed since the year of Farley's death and Dude Ranch, surely for the benefit of Pete Davidson if not for the fans of Tom DeLonge.

Sandwich Shops: Primanti Brothe…
 
Mike is working through the tedium of his record release and binary options are a bother. Does negative feedback hose the customer service employee sipping chai lattes on the other end?

Why not DiGiorno? Jacob's ratio has tanked and his hard drives are full of science fantasy content. This leads into some talk of The Franchise™. The lines between shows are blurring. Can customer entitlement be tied to social media? If so, can we challenge our patrons to the #BirdBoxChallenge? The guys talk about Bird Box and very old M. Night Shya…
 
Mike has a new song out called "Anna" and that feels good. We discuss the various podcast theme songs Mike has composed over the years as well. New year, new whatever.

Human beings love crime porn. Is that wrong? Podcast sponsors don't seem to think so.
