    Life In The Stocks episodes are a little bit fewer and further between these days, and for the foreseeable future there won't be any regular podcasts. Instead, I'll be hosting the occasional live podcast event, and the audio from those shows will then be published as a podcast soon after.
    This conversation has been a long time coming. And it's been well worth the wait, trust me.
    It's my absolute pleasure to present Episode 252 of Life In The Stocks: the audio from My Evening with Paddy Considine on May 19th at the West Hampstead Arts Club in London.

    After a three month hiatus, Life In The Stocks is BACK with a vengeance. But with a new twist. Season Four of the podcast will consist of 50 episodes all recorded in front of a live audience, because after five years and 250 episodes, I felt like it was time to switch things up. And we launch this new season and all new format to the show with the one and only Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols, Rich Kids, Iggy Pop's band, the Faces, various other groups, and a solo artist in his own right.

    #250 Tommy Chong (Actor/Comedian/Musician/Activist)

    This landmark episode deserves an iconic guest. Enter The I Chong: legendary actor, comedian, musician & activist, Tommy Chong. I could not be more thrilled to welcome Tommy onto Life In The Stocks. What an honour! We discuss Cheech & Chong, Up in Smoke, Motown, The Jackson 5, jail time, the US prison system, the Wolf of Wall Street, stand up comedy, married life, and so much more. It was an absolute treat talking to Tommy. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed it.

    #248 Marko DeSantis (Sugarcult/Bad Astronaut)

    It's been a while since I've had anyone this chatty on the show. Marko is one hell of a talker. He's got stories for days. He's also a complete music geek, and his knowledge of early Californian punk rock is second to none. There's all kinds of fun stuff in this episode - if you like NOFX, Lagwagon, No Use For A Name, and that whole Fat Wreck Chords scene, you'll going to love it! We also talk about Sugarcult and the twentieth anniversary of their debut album, Start Static. Enjoy the show!

    Welcome to the first podcast of 2022, and Episode 247 in total. My first guest of the year is Jim Lindberg from Pennywise who joins me to discuss a wide range of topics from the formation of Pennywise in Hermosa Beach and the local punk scene in that area, which gave the world bands like Black Flag, Circle Jerks & Descendents, to parenthood and his relationship with his father, The Other F Word documentary, Jim's new solo album, Songs From The Elkhorn Trail, Epitaph Records, coming up alongside bands like Rancid & The Offspring, his decision to leave Pennywise in 2010, and a whole lot more. It was a great chat - Jim is a lovely dude and a brilliant songwriter.
