    BONUS Episode: Your idols, Chvrches

    We're honored to be the first people to interview electro-pop band Chvrches in person since the pandemic hit and stranded them in Los Angeles, leaving them frustrated with our traffic system but loving our bad TV! Nothing was off-limits in this episode, as we talked tits, fannies, f-boys, Morrissey, their collaboration with Robert Smith for their brand new record, "Screen Violence," and much more. Our special bonus interview with Lauren, Iain, and Martin is available now, wherever you listen to podcasts.
