Indiecast is a weekly show from UPROXX Indie Mixtape hosted by music critics Steven Hyden and Ian Cohen. Every week, Hyden and Cohen discuss the biggest news and names in modern indie, as well as look back to moments that established the indie rock canon.
 
With TV Avalanche, Uproxx's Alan Sepinwall and Brian Grubb have fun scaling the heights of the overwhelming new TV landscape to talk about shows they love, shows they watched so that you will never ever have to, and shows that may turn into something special with a little luck and time. Come for the TV nerdery, stay for the occasional talk about silly character names and two of the NBA's most godforsaken basketball teams!
