Life Was Peachy is the best podcast about the most questionable music of the mid-to-late 90’s and early 2000’s. Each episode is a deep dive into a classic nu metal album with the benefit of 20 years of hindsight to find out just what happened back then and what it amounts to in this brave nu world. Host Andrew Cahak is joined by various guests including comedians, musicians, and other people of interest. Some will have very passionate things to say, some may barely be able to stomach the stuff, and some have never heard nu metal before. Whatever the case, it will be a fun conversation with plenty of background information and just the right amount of irreverence.

Are we best friends?!?

I found the place to share my shame. Can’t wait to see what other albums this guys reviews. He loves Will Haven!! I don’t know anyone else but me that Loves Will Haven and i know at least 400 people, probably. if you’re 40 and pretend to cringe when Mudvayne comes on the ol Ipod, but actually you wanna bang your head and scream at the heavens, this is your podcast.

Great Music Podcast

Highly recommend this podcast. Andrew and his guests take us back to bands and albums we either feel nostalgic for, or wish we could forget. Both informative and entertaining, Life Was Peachy is a great music commentary podcast on a genre of music very much of its time.
