Actor/Comedian Pete Capella returns to discuss one of the most influential albums of all time, Moby's 1999 chart smashing PLAY.

We discuss what it means to become a sellout, and whether or not we think Moby fits the bill. We also talk about the monumental shift toward licensing songs to commercials and film that this record brought on, and how that thrusted Moby into the limelight months after the album dropped. Other topics include Moby's fervent animal rights agenda, the cultural appropritation in PLAY, and the influence these 18 tracks had on the future of the music industry.
