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: Dave Ayers

    God Ween Evan continues its periodic interview series, where someone in the world of Ween talks with the GWE team. This time, Will Nunziata interviews former Ween manager Dave Ayers, a longtime A&R man who signed Ween to TwinTone Records.

Listen in as Ayers recounts stories from Ween’s early days, ones about the original cover art and album title for what would become God Ween Satan, or the incredible way in which Dean and Gene had him initially listen to The Pod, or the unbelievable story about Gener’s wedding in Las Vegas, and much more.

    Cover It With Gas : Put Your Boobs On

    Cover It With Gas : Put Your Boobs On

    For the second instalment of our Cover it With Gas and Set on Fire Ween cover series we turn to Eli Schwab and the rest of the Can I Thwipp It Boys (Manus Dunbar and Zach Johnson) for a truly inspired take on the deepest of Ween cuts, "Put Your Boobs On." Members of the Ween community will know Eli from his incredible work with the Weenzine but may not be aware of his lyrical stylings. He and Manus, an accomplished MC in his own right, deliver verses drenched in Ween imagery and comical cosmic punchlines all anchored by Zach's silky but ugent production, a beat Dr. Dre would be proud to call his own. So come take a ride with us, and put your motherfucking boobs on!

    Cover It With Gas : Tender Situation

    Cover It With Gas : Tender Situation

    God Ween Evan is back with a new Ween cover series we are calling Cover It With Gas & Set It On Fire! We put out the call to the Ween fan community and received numerous kick ass Ween covers, but none more inspired than our first selection: Eli Wing's "Tender Situation." Eli Wing is a Ween fan and musician based in the Netherlands who records under the name Hushed Hands and his take on Ween’s beloved bromance ballad "Tender Situation" is ethereal and devastatingly beautiful. Please enjoy his effort and our lovely conversation.

Get back to basom

This show was great but trying to completely reinvent the wheel has been a mistake. I get it. Evan likes Ween now. Just find someone else to try to convince. ANYONE else. It’s not tricky. Maybe I’m alone, but I don’t listen for interviews or now we’re hearing Ween covers. I just like the formula of trying to get someone to like the band and discussing the songs. Love you guys but just get back to the original idea. Evan just changes teams. It’s gonna be alright, you just gotta transition back to basom.

GREAT JAMS!!
Give it a listen and when you agree, give some love on a review and support these guys (and a gal!)

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.
