    'Hey Jealousy' by Gin Blossoms (w/ Patrick Walsh)

    'Hey Jealousy' by Gin Blossoms (w/ Patrick Walsh)

    Tell me do you think it'd be alright if friend/writer Patrick Walsh (It's Always Sunny in Philedalphia, 2 Broke Girls - @thepatrickwalsh) brought White Claws to the studio. The 1992 rollerskating king of Missouri himself (this will make sense after you listen) brings peak 90's garage rock and much, much more.

    Please be aware this episode contains discussion of suicide.

Customer Reviews

Ravensbreed ,

Unpunchable

Love this. I found it only recently when I needed a good laugh. Drops of Jupiter and Africa are my favourite Punched up jams.

mollyisabelxo ,

love it

listened to every episode within a couple of weeks, am currently replaying all of them, you guys never fail to make me laugh

Vinditzkies ,

Started off great

First couple of episodes were awesome. Then they started having guests, too many voices, all talking over each other. They were so good when it was just the two of them.
