    Rattle & Hum, Part 1: Rock and Roll Stops the Traffic

    Rattle & Hum, Part 1: Rock and Roll Stops the Traffic

    Join us for part 1 of the musical journey that is U2's Rattle & Hum. We discuss the album vs. the film (is film expensive?), bolo ties, cummerbunds, and of course, the music that makes up these releases that we (mostly) love but critics love to hate. We travel down the Liffey, Save the Yuppies, visit Sun Studios, go "down to Harlem" and wonder, "is that really the blues?". And of course, our ever-present questions to ask Bono over whiskey and cake.

    An Interview with... the Garden Tarts. Featuring Jeremy International

    An Interview with... the Garden Tarts. Featuring Jeremy International

    This isn't the first time Jeremy has joined us on an episode. The last time was the fated first recording of the Unforgettable Fire episode... but we are so glad to have him back! The world knows him as Jeremy International, but we know him as Hillary's little brother. In what we hope to be the first in a series of interview episodes, join us as Jeremy asks hard-hitting questions about our U2 origins, first concert experiences and other specific thoughts on the band.

    (I can't believe) The News Today in the U2verse

    (I can't believe) The News Today in the U2verse

    The news in the U2verse keeps on exploding! We have solved the mystery of the Sunday Bloody Sunday conundrum, U2 license plates and what's going on inside Bono's brain. Join us as we chat about the latest shows in Australia and Asia, the literal and figurative earthquake and a misfired announcement. Our ever important questions for Bono over whiskey and cake (which won't be Hillary's mom's bourbon cake) and some surprise questions for Edge and Larry. (If they'll have us.) So, grab a drink, take a listen and don't forget to shop (RED) this holiday season.

Join us on this musical journey as we come to terms with the siren that is America, get clued into Bono's evil plan to trick The Edge, and call b******t on Larry.

    Oh, and we will talk about side B of U2's iconic album The Joshua Tree, too. So grab your favorite drink and join us! And what questions do  we add to the list to ask Bono over whiskey and cake? You will have to listen to find out!

    U2: The Gift that Keeps on Giving... "Ahimsa" is Here

    U2: The Gift that Keeps on Giving... "Ahimsa" is Here

    The holidays have not yet arrived but that hasn't stopped U2 from giving us an early present... a new song! "Ahisma" was released on November 22, 2019 at midnight local time (that's a good cover band name... but for who? Listen to find out!) and we are in love. We recognize not everyone agrees and we talk about it alllll in this new mini episode. Plus, super important questions for Bono over whiskey and cake... but, what kind of cake? That's the biggest question of them all!

U2 fans stop here and listen

Just discovered this podcast and fell in love with it right away. The ladies are fun and you can tell they are friends because they ooze chemistry. Mi have downloaded each episode and I have a feeling I will be all caught up in no time.

Fun podcast for megafans of U2. I wish I was in the room joining this conversation! So much love for the band and even some info I didn’t know.

Here is a fan from Maryland to cross off your wish list! Such fun listening to your podcast; can’t talk enough about the greatest band-the music, activism and spirituality-so necessary for our world today. Who else rocks all that?
