God Ween Evan is a podcast celebrating the American rock 'n' roll band Ween, and one man's refusal to open his heart, mind, and soul to the band's music. That man is Evan Kaufman, a New York City-based actor, writer, director and all around beautiful human being. A lover of comedy and music, Evan, it reasons, should adore and appreciate Ween's absurdist wit and musical craftsmanship, but he doesn't. WHY? Fortunately, his friends and fellow artists Katie Hartman, Will Nunziata, and Paul Gutkowski are here to unlock the mystery of what is wrong with Evan, and to shepherd him into the brown light of the Boognish. If they can save Evan Kaufman, they'll save us all.

    GWE — The Interviews: Eric Slick (Dr. Dog)

    GWE — The Interviews: Eric Slick (Dr. Dog)

    God Ween Evan continues its periodic interview series, where someone in or around Ween and the Ween community chews the fat with the team. Next up is singer, songwriter, and drummer Eric Slick. Slick is often recognized as a drummer with rock acts including Dr Dog and Natalie Prass, but to label this octopoidal beast a simple tub thumper does a disservice to his immense musical talent. His first LP Palisades dropped in 2017 and revealed a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter with ambitions beyond the four on the floor. In 2018 he released the Bullfighter EP, a dense four song cycle anchored by a string quartet and rounded off by electronics, percussion and distant piano crashes. In June, he is set to release another solo album, a topic discussed in this episode, as well as his ties to Ween (trying out for the band, working with Deaner on music during quarantine, etc.), epic Thanksgiving jams at John & Peter's, the most fire bars Brian Wilson ever spit, and more!

Legit

Funny, intelligent, and likable group of friends talking about ween and having a good time. I’m a huge ween fan, but the cast is so good that they could talk about anything and be a good listen. The unfolding drama of Evan’s feelings toward ween will keep me coming back for more.

Great pod

Even if you’ve only tangentially heard of Ween, there’s something to like about this podcast. Like many others, I’ve been listening to help curate my own exploration of the band. It doesn’t hurt that these folks are seriously funny. You’ll be laughing and cursing Evan in every episode. Good stuff.
