    Popeye Vogelsang Returns! (Calling Hours, Farside)

    Of the music that's been highlighted on this show, few voices have been more influential than that of Popeye Vogelsang. After several years away, he's back behind the microphone with his new band, Calling Hours. Their album "Say Less" is currently streaming everywhere and available courtesy of Revelation Records now. A true album of the year contender. Enjoy!

    Nathan Gray & Becky Fontaine (The Iron Roses)

    WHAT AN EPISODE! We were honored to sit down with Nathan Gray & Becky Fontaine of The Iron Roses and discuss their new record available NOW from Iodine Recordings. Writing hopeful, protest music that gives the audience a sense of belonging seems like a huge task...but The Iron Roses are the exact band for the job. If you're looking for a hopeful, fun conversation on the power of music and community, look no further!

    Sal Ellington (Rebuilder)

    How does a band's first show end up being an opening slot for Dropkick Murphys' St. Patrick's Day show? The same way they end up on the Clerks 3 soundtrack...they bust their asses. Sal Ellington of the Boston band Rebuilder gives us an incredible episode of WDWEM. Rebuilder's album Local Support is available NOW from Iodine Recordings.

    Wolfe MacReady (writer/director)

    We're honored to have longtime friend writer/director Wolfe MacReady join us this week! We discuss our longstanding friendship built upon a foundation of horror. Wolfe shares her story on sobriety and being a trans woman and how that has impacted her writing leading up to this current project-Giving Up The Ghost. Incredible story and I'm honored we get to share it.
