Going Off Track is a weekly, interview show hosted by Benny Horowitz (The Gaslight Anthem) and producer Brad Worrell.
The show was created in 2012 by Jonah Bayer, Steven Smith and Brad, when Steven (then a FuseTV host with Jonah his writer), realized that all the interesting conversations with guests were happening while the lights were being setup. Once cameras started rolling it was all about PR and record-label priorities. Prior to that they'd discuss skateboarding, cooking or just about anything else of interest to the artist.
So was born the casual, "living room conversation" dynamic of Offtrack who's guest list leans towards the musical but with plenty of comedians, actors and generally interesting folks thrown in.

He may have been pushing it a bit though by watching that loooonng Beatles documentary seven times!

How to listen to going off track...

Turn off the lights and light a candle
Tonight I'm in a romantic mood.
Put Going Off Track off...take a shower, shower together
Rub yourself down in some hot oils
Turn off the lights and let's get cozy
See, you're the only podcast in the world that I need
I wanna love you, love you all over, every episode...even the weird fat mike ones..
Over and over and over and over and over and over and over again
But in a less sexy way it’s rad podcast and even if I don’t know every guest...the interviews are always rad and honest and I can’t recommend this podcast enough.
Need another “Jonah catch up segment”
