Welcome to The Bosscast!
Host John Murray loves The Boss (aka Bruce Springsteen). He loves talking with people who love The Boss about The Boss. If you like Springsteen and free form conversation you've found The Promised Land.
Figuring It Out
John & Leif just kinda hang as they figure out the future of the pod. Stay tuned!!
Ep. 84 w/ Nick Miller
Nick Miller is a Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter who pulls as much from Hank Williams as he does Smokey Robinson, mixing in a little humor from John Prine and a little cynicism from Elvis Costello along the way. Alternatively trying his damndest to be sad without being depressing or danceable without being corny.
Another Basement Tape
John records another basement tape. He talks The Bosscast recording schedule, his thoughts on the vinyl releases and Springsteen in Rumson. A quick shot of BOSS goodness.
Ep. 83 w/ James McCarthy
James McCarthy is a Co-Executive Producer on TruTV's Impractical Jokers and is half of the sketch comedy duo Reverse Cowboys. Born in Brooklyn, he was raised in The Boss' (current) hometown of Colts Neck, NJ, and now lives in NYC with his wife and cat. You can follow him on social media @mcjamesmccarthy and see his sketches on www.reversecowboys.com
Ep. 82 w/ Chris Donahue
Chris Donahue is a writer, filmmaker, and comedian who currently hosts the popular weekly stand up show Random Hero every Thursday night at Hart Bar in Bushwick. Follow him on Twitter @mrchrisdonahue or Instagram @chrisdonahue.
BOSS News Update
John couldn't get to the studio to record. So he's alone in his basement recording on his phone. He discusses Bruce Springsteen Day, The Asbury Film and Music Festival & the upcoming Boss vinyl releases. Nothing can stop John talking about The Boss.
Tunnel of Leif
It took nearly two months, but I'm all caught up. I'm relatively new to the Boss (all things considered) but the journey I've been on these past 70ish days has been contextualized immensely by John's own fandom with Bruce along with all the wonderful guests. The reverence for Scooter, the Big Man, and the rest of the E Street band is palpable, endearing and downright contagious.
I've tried other Springsteen related podcasts, but this was the one that kept calling me back. My bond with Bruce will forever be intertwined with The Bosscast, and for that I'm eternally grateful.
What better way to commemorate the big 70th birthday milestone, than to take a moment and acknowledge/celebrate one of "the little guys" spreading the gospel of Bruce.
Thanks John and Leif!!!
If you like the Boss, you will love the Bosscast
Such a consistently enjoyable show! Really great conversations that remind me why I got into Bruce in the first place.
