Going Off Track is a weekly, interview show hosted by Benny Horowitz (The Gaslight Anthem) and producer Brad Worrell. The show was created in 2012 by Jonah Bayer, Steven Smith and Brad, when Steven (then a FuseTV host with Jonah his writer), realized that all the interesting conversations with guests were happening while the lights were being setup. Once cameras started rolling it was all about PR and record-label priorities. Prior to that they'd discuss skateboarding, cooking or just about anything else of interest to the artist. So was born the casual, "living room conversation" dynamic of Offtrack who's guest list leans towards the musical but with plenty of comedians, actors and generally interesting folks thrown in.

Like Two Old Friends Chatting
I loved the episode with John O’Callaghan talking about the new John the Ghost EP! My favorite part about this episode and what I love most is that it felt like I was just listening to two good friends having a conversation with each other. It was so nice to hear more about the debut album and his thoughts on it all!
Loving the scent of one’s own farts
I’ve had this show in my queue for like 6 years and have only gotten through about 30 some-odd episodes; started from the beginning and am in the 2013 era. Boy.. wow.. music critics huh? Real super cool guys! Lol. They all literally sound like bad parodies with how they speak and condescend... like nails on sheet metal. I googled that jonah guy and he looked exactly like I thought he would. Music industry people aren’t as cool as they believe they are. Oh well. I can’t imagine the show gets any easier to listen to post-2013.
Oh my god put it in...
My ears. All over and inside my ears. Going Off Track needs to be inside my ears all the time. I need it. Give me more! Deep. Inside. My. Ears. Now.
