Damian Abraham has been many things... the singer of a critically acclaimed band, a failed VJ and food network host, one of the minds behind TV's "The Wrestlers", parent of 3... and undeniably, a punk music obsessive.
Each week, he sits down and chats with an interesting person from various walks of life to find out how their world was influenced and changed by the discovery of a novelty genre that supposedly died out in 1978... PUNK!

I listen to a lot of music related podcasts where the hosts seem to just be phoning it in a lot of the time but Damian genuinely seems to be so happy every time he has a guest on a gets to nerd out about punk and music. Well worth a listen.
The interviewer constantly tries to turn everything back to himself that the interviewee is talking about. It could have been great if his ego didn’t get in the way
Must listen for punk fans
Damian is a truly engaging host and is able create absorbing and wonderfully nerdy conversations with a diverse catalogue of people that punk has played a part in the shaping of.
