Big time music fans Evan Forde Barden (Magnet Theater, One Hundred Dates) and Patrick Cartelli (Summer Collider) host this monthly talk show about people’s favorite songs. Each month, they invite a special guest to share one song that they love – be in an all-time favorite, a track that reminds them of a great story, or something that just blew their minds. Then a musician takes the stage to cover it and play a song of their own.
Pandemic Ed. 002- Brady O’Callahan não fala Português
Brady O’Callahan is back! Brady joined us to talk about comfort music, relaxation routines, and a lot about Brazil. Staying inside has been rough on us all so we talk a little about routines like exercise, coffee, and enjoying our record collections.
Brady’s first comfort song is Azymuth – Vôo Sobre o Horizonte, a stringed, synth-filled romantic montage of a song. He tells us about how he discovered this song and album at a small hole-in-the-wall record store in Rio, Brazil. We get into foreign language music, the instrumental feeling you get from it, and how it changes when you start picking up some words.
Brady has also been listening to Burl Ives – Lavender Blue. It’s a sweet, calming song that shows strength through its simplicity. And, honestly, we’re happy that it’s back to retake “Dilly Dilly” from those clout-chasing fools at Budweiser trying to get Old Spice Weird!
Then there’s a bit of saudade for Brazil – Both Brady and Pat visited Traço de União in Pinheiros, São Paulo for feijoada and some music from Bloco Pagu! Small world!
Pat: ímã – ímã de nove pontas
Evan: Amber Mark – Heart Shaped Box & Post Malone’s Nirvana Covers: Videos & Setlist

Pandemic Ed. 001
Well, there’s not much more to do during this pandemic than stay inside, listen to music, and record podcasts about it. Pat and Evan catch up on what they’ve been doing during the pandemic so far and what life has been like since the last season of Repeater wrapped. Join them for tales of couple-isolation, trips to Brazil, and how to lean into Spotify’s algorithm. Subscribe for more eps during this time of downtime.
LIVE: Repeater’s Top 10 Countdown of 2019
At the very end of 2019, the Repeater crew invited seven hilarious guests to count down the top ten songs of the year. Comedians include Leslie Diana, Jordan Camille Randolph, Juan Nicolón, Milly Tamarez, Molly Kiernan, Peter Johnston, and Brooks Allison. Recorded LIVE at QED in Queens, NY.
Although we just lived through the year that was 2019, it’s incredible to re-experience it through a bunch of comedians’ favorite songs. Boy Brooks performs original music and we find out which song was the very best of 2019!
LIVE: Repeater’s Top 10 Countdown of 1997
Evan and Pat are back, along with seven special guests, as they count down the best tracks of 1997. Comedians include Kyle Gordon, Sally Ann Hall, Anjali Desai, Mic Nguyen, Ty Portis, Nanie Méndez, and Harris Mayersohn. Recorded LIVE at QED in Queens, NY.
Believe it or not, 1997 was a HUGE year for music, with everybody from Celine Dion to the Backstreet Boys and Matchbox 20 to Joe (?) hitting the Billboard Top 100. It was also the year we landed a rover on Mars, so let’s give it up for 1997! These seven comedians pitch their favorite songs of the year and then Evan and Pat rank them, filling out the top ten list with a few choices of their own.
To close the show, Kyle Gordon performs some of his hilarious musical comedy for us, channeling teenage emo kids, Colbie Caillat, and Bazilian jazz singers.
LIVE: Repeater’s Top 10 Countdown of 2009
It’s our first-ever top 10 countdown! Join Evan and Pat, along with ten of their hilarious friends, as they count down the best tracks of 2009. Comedians include Amanda Giobbi, John Ross, Addie Weyrich, Taylor Garron, Tom Sanchez, Michelle Francesca Thomas, Fumi Abe, Patrick Sweeney, Rachel Joravsky, and Bridgette Rizkalla. Plus, music from Kaylyn Marie Scardefield. Recorded LIVE at QED in Queens, NY.
Recorded, coincidentally, in the midst of the #10yearchallenge social media craze earlier this year, our 2009 countdown is everything you wish TRL had been. Ten comedians each pitch us their pick for the best song of 2009 and the competition is fierce! There are emotional appeals, eyes-closed guided experiences, costumes, and even shit talk. It’s hilarious, beautiful, and fun as hell.
Our very good friend, Kaylyn Marie Scardefield joins us for this momentous new live show to play some of her wonderful new songs and serenade us with a brilliant medley of 2009 hits.
Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks “Little Fang” with Taylor Garron
On Repeater this week, we talk with comedian, satirist, writer, and editor Taylor Garron (Reductress, Vulture) about Avey Tare Slasher Flick’s “Little Fang,” Taylor’s undying love for anything in the Animal Collective family, and how the jangle-y 60’s cocktail sound of Little Fang got her through this past year with its power to pep and motivate.
We kick off our episode with a taste of everyone’s current favorites, from Pat’s pick of PUP’s new album Morbid Stuff (specifically “Closure” and “Full Blown Meltdown“), to Evan’s pick of “Tempo” by Lizzo & Missy Elliot (Lizzo’s song drops are a recurring theme this season), and Taylor’s self-described musical regression with MF Doom’s “Rhymes Like Dimes” and Blind Melon’s “No Rain“. We also talk about more 2018 moments from the suspension of the suspension of the L train and the death of the queen of soul: Aretha Franklin.
This episode has everything: from Taylor deep-diving into her admiration for the whole Animal Collection clan, to relating musical talent, technique, and instinct to her own growing career in comedy, all rounded out with a key tip for cooking with wine. Check it out!
Don’t forget to leave us a 5-star review, because we will read it on-air!!!
