They’re not ACTUALLY jerks.

Brian and Kyle run a tight ship over here. These guys have such a great time talking about music and guitar things it’s hard to not feel like you’re in the room with them. I love hearing about Kyle’s pedal collection (will it ever end? I hope not) and Brian’s insane fractal/orange/two notes rigs. The Jerks know their stuff and exhibit it with candor and humility. I don’t listen as much as I should, but every time I do it’s a blast. Keep it up, boys.

The Like My Mr. Joseph O ,

Stop Workin and Start Jerkin

Brian and Kyle just get it. Gear podcasts don't have to be about boring stuff that no one is going to buy because a sponsor wants it sold. They can be about buying whatever you want whether it's cheap, has anime on it, or is made by MXR. Also this is your one stop shop for demos of pedals being mixed with the sweet sounds of the Korg Miku. If there was one criticism, it is that they don't seem to know the difference between Joe, Joseph, Joey, and Jo-Jo. Oh well I guess we can't all be perfect. If you can think of a better podcast it would honestly Just Surprise Me. How I Met Your Mother is really a sub par TV Show JimmyB and Will

A much needed edge to the gear podcast world

They aren’t sugary sweet or overly nice. They call things how they see it. They play punk music. They review gear that isn’t ungodly expensive. They talk about its uses from a practical point of view. The drink beer, they swear. They play single pickup guitars. Not all heros wear capes. These ones just happen to drink Miller Light.
