Up next the Boys review the Big Laugh EP "Manic Revision" as well as the upcoming LP by Subsist "The Rhythm Method". Speaking of Subsist - Mic & Stephen welcome Matt Hartman to talk about the upcoming release.

Adam and Mic spend a few moments talking about the positive impact punk & hardcore have had on the discussion of mental health lately as well. Last but not least. the boys get back to business and review some coffee. Man - This episode is bananas! You never know you might just get an extra surprise as well. Let's Go!

Not What I Expected!

When I listened to this podcast I did NOT expect things to get so nostalgic, especially about Shaq sneakers and Zao!

But the interviews were fun and I need to step up my coffee game and order the coffee these folks recommend!

If you love coffee and hardcore, you should check this out!

BeardedHope ,

These Guys Are Nuts!

Really looking forward to this taking off. The hosts are hilarious and the bands they have reviewed so far have been killer. Check it out!

Breathinghope ,

Looking forward to this!

Good dudes involved and my fave subjects being discussed. I’m angling you be a guest someday, because this just sounds like serious fun.
