73 episodes

The members of Blaggards, a band based out of Houston, TX, share their experiences and occasionally chat with guests.
"The official podcast of all things Blaggards. Found on all major pod platforms and delivered weekly, it’s a behind-the-music view of the band, with tidbits for new fans (it’s just Blaggards, not The Blaggards, newbs) and cool stuff for longtime followers (Episode 5 discusses how the band’s music has been used in films like How to Be Single and TV shows like The Good Wife). Its engaging hosts are smart and funny. An interesting aside is the podcast also offers occasional glimpses back at Houston’s music community." — Jesse Sendejas, Houston Press

    Episode 72: Louder than Nicko McBrain in a Frying Pan

    A freeform conversation during a thunderstorm.


    As the rain falls, we talk about our ongoing recording sessions for the new album, re-examine our opinion of Buc-ee's, reminisce about Two Pesos (and how much better it was than Taco Cabana), heap praise upon H-E-B and Whataburger, and indulge in a bit of nerdy gear talk.

    Episode 69: Ant-face, Missouri

    Why are people fired from bands? Some personal anecdotes may offer a few clues.


    SlapperCast usually comes out on Tuesday, but we're releasing this episode a bit early so that we may join the rest of the music industry in observing #BlackoutTuesday, a day of silence on social media to provoke accountability and change. Please stay safe. #TheShowMustBePaused

    Episode 68: Brett, Beth & Beyond

    Bars are reopening and things are getting weird. This week we talk about the safety precautions bar owners have implemented, and the flak they're taking from customers as a result. Also: bands that would benefit from better singers, overcoming nervousness on stage, the importance of good stage banter: how much is too little, when it does become too much, and should it ever be scripted or rehearsed?

I love it!

Congrats. Really. The content is fantastic and extremely interesting.

Thanks for all the hard work, Smalley.

You don't need a restraining order!

Always packed with great inside information, history, references to other bands, pubs and podcasts. But the most fun for me is picking out Patrick's off the cuff analogies and comments. Always entertaining, just like their live shows. I guarantee you will never see the same Blaggards show twice. You may think you know the lyrics, but you don't. LEMMMMONNNN CAKE!!!

It wasn’t a hard sell! Patrick & Chad are awesome storytellers and really fun to listen to. Great job, guys! Keep ‘em coming!
