Located in the only part of New York State that says "Pop" instead of "Soda", Christine Gunsher and Alyssa Johnson have been friends since high school. There's not much they don't know about each other. Back in 2016, Alyssa had a great idea for combining two things that she really loved:
Podcasts and concept albums.
3 years later after a few tries and fails, Alyssa finally turned to her best friend and asked the age old question of "Would you host a podcast with me? You don't have to do anything, just sit and talk."
And Chrissy said "Sure."
So now these two friends get to sit down, try to ignore Chrissy's adorable pitbull, and record a podcast about music that only Alyssa seems to like. And hey, maybe you'll like it, too?
Episode Ten: Promiscuous Percussionist (Part 1)
Recorded back during quarantine, Chrissy and Alyssa return for their tenth episode to review... A Musical?? Ghost Quartet by Dave Malloy. Who is the villain exactly? Is a maybe handsome astronomer even worth betraying your sister? Can Alyssa really pass this off as a concept album? Only two best friends can decide.
Episode Nine: Get Gulped
In our tenth episode, we celebrate Christmas in July and listen to the Decemberists' Crane Wife. Why is Shakespeare so boring? Why are the songs out of order? Why wasn't this released last year when it was recorded? Only two best friends can decide.
A quick filler episode while Alyssa gets her shit together.
Episode Eight: Phormetical
In our eighth episode, we take a request from a friend of Chrissy's and listen to Twenty One Pilot's latest album; Trench. Why won't Chrissy listen to Blurry Face? Is this album actually cultural appropriation? Why is this episode so long? Only two best friends can decide.
Episode Seven: This Is Chrissy's Favorite
In our seventh episode, we finally talk about an album we both love! Gorillaz's Demon Days. What's so funny about the word "among"? Why can't Chrissy and Alyssa get the audio right for just one episode? Will Chrissy ever remember who Alyssa is?? Only two best friends can decide.
Episode Six: A Grave Mistake
In our sixth episode, we celebrate the spookiest of holidays with a very specific drinking game! What horror movies has Alyssa seen? Get it right, you win! Get it wrong, you drink. We go through Ice Nine Kills' album; the Silver Scream, where (almost) every song is based on a classic horror film. How well does Chrissy know Alyssa? Why does Alyssa know so much about movies she hasn't seen? Does Edward Scissorhands really count as a horror film? Only two best friends can decide.
