    Very Special Episode: Mandatory Fun Ranked ft. Zakk!

    We’re back ranking another album! This week I’m joined by the effervescent and Coca-Cola-fueled Zakk to rank the tracks on 2014’s Mandatory Fun. He’s 16. How different are his opinions on Al’s music from Lauren’s, an elder millennial? You’ll have to listen and find out! We discuss the benefits of Coca-Cola in glass bottles, the benefits of “Weird Al” deep cuts, concerts, biopics, and so much more.

    Zakk’s dad has a podcast. And a YouTube channel. You may have heard of
    it. https://www.infectiousgroovepodcast.com

    Episode 54: Dog Eat Dog ft. I Drive a Dodge Strata, Efficiency and Progress, & Saltwater Taffy

    Episode 54: Dog Eat Dog ft. I Drive a Dodge Strata, Efficiency and Progress, & Saltwater Taffy

    We’re celebrating the kickoff of Labor Day weekend with a song about WORK. LOVING WORK. Look out, mama, it’s “Dog Eat Dog”! This is one of the standout tracks from 1986’s Polka Party. We had a ton of fun with this one (as per usual). John makes up a coffee boi song, because people like hearing John sing, dang it. We dredge up some things from
    our childhood that nobody else understands. What does this have to do with dogs? CECE BREAK! Office woes and a new computer. An uncharacteristic moment of seriousness on the Beer’d Al Podcast. John comes up with a parody on the spot! We talk about carcinogenic sweeteners. It doesn’t matter what you say in Rock Band. Lauren gets
    on a little “Weird Al” soapbox again. Remember that show Dog Eat Dog? Roll that beautiful bean footage! BD BD BD BD BD BEIGH DEIGH (listen for context on that!). Chicken tenders, MORE SINGING, John can’t think. John did not remember the thing he tried to remember, FYI.

    Lauren has I Drive a Dodge Strata from Ology Brewing Company & Efficiency and Progress from Thin Man Brewery. John has Saltwater Taffy IPA from Flying Dog Brewery. Cheers!

    Very Special Episode: Running with Scissors Ranked AGAIN ft. Brad from Album Concept Hour

    Very Special Episode: Running with Scissors Ranked AGAIN ft. Brad from Album Concept Hour

    I liked it so much, I decided to do it again! I’ve got Brad from the
    Album Concept Hour podcast here to rank the tracks on 1999’s Running
    with Scissors. Yeah, we ranked this album before… but I DON’T CARE.
    Different guests will yield different results. And boy did that ring
    true here! Listen in as we discuss all the tracks and tell some fun
    tales along the way. Like how my dad has a “theme song” when he walks
    into a restaurant. Or random Weird Al singalongs. This episode has
    everything! We get deep! We get silly! You get to listen!

Awesome

Awesome podcast about an awesome topic. Fighting the good fight of giving Weird Al the adulation he deserves, and being very funny and delightful doing it.

An Absolutely Fun Podcast!!!

This is such a fun podcast on all things Weird Al, his music and even what beers go along with his songs. I’ve been a casual Weird Al fan since the days of “Eat It”. But Lauren has turned me to a full fledged Weird Al fan after hearing she and her brother discuss their love for Weird Al and his music. Even if you’re not a beer drinker, this podcast still has something for everyone. They will have you laughing and learning some new things.

Always entertaining!

Weird Al fans will regard this pod like a 1955 doubled-die Denver mint penny.
