Scarlettbear09 ,

I love this podcast

I love how he invites a lot of artists onto his podcast and gets into detail with very specific questions, and I also like the fact that this is an entire podcast about punk and music! (Plus he is a very interesting and cool guy)

spookyruben ,

Whom is eating chips ?!

For almost 2 hours I was worried I was having a seizure.... what’s this “eating chips” sound.... an inside joke I’m not on the inside of ?! Besides this, GREAT EP :) !!! Xoxoxo

Milfhouse709 ,

Such a Gem!

Damian’s interview style is straight to the point. We don’t have to listen to the b.s. small talk and get to get down to business right away. The guests are so rad that I generally freak out every episode, literal Gawds of punk rock! Bonus points that the host is a woke bae, and his feel-good messages at the end make me so happy.
