[EP 138] Podcasts Become The Teeth feat. Zac Sewell!

Hola DigHeads! On this week’s episode, Josh sits down outside of a Starbucks with his old friend, Zac Sewell! Zac is the bass player for Pianos Become The Teeth and United Nations. Pianos will release their third studio album called “Keep You” on October 28 on Epitaph Records. And United Nations just released a new record, The Next Four Years, as well.

Josh and Zac grew up together in a special little pocket of Maryland called Kent Island. So, the fellas have a nice catch up session combined with a full report of Zac’s life as a rock and roller, attempts not to gush when you meet your idols, and what happens when your drummer does PCP at a Belgian rock festival. Fun ep!

[EP 137] Hungover in Alabama feat. JT Habersaat!

Hola DigHeads! On a very special, bonus episode, Josh and Mike have a phone-convo with comedian JT Haberssaat. JT has apperaed on Comedy Central, has performed with Henry Rollins, Doug Standhope, and Brian Posehn, and even acted alongside Ron Jeremy in the (technically, non-pornagraphic) Toxic Avenger 4. He is currently headlining the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour, the Bmore stop of which will be featuring Josh and Mike as openers.

The boys get in depth with JT about his DIY, “Black Flag-style,” of touring, and why he prefers to avoid the mainstream comedy circuit, and just do the whole damn thing himself. Thanks for the call-in JT, this was a very fun and interesting conversation!

[EP 136] Roller Skates & Parachute Pants feat. Joe Matarese!

Hola DigHeads! On this week’s episode, Josh and guest cohost comedian Stavros Halkias sit down in the green room of Magooby’s Joke House to talk to comedian, Joe Matarese! Joe’s a veteran stand up, he recently appeared on America’s Got Talent, and he also has a very successful podcast called “Fixing Joe.”

Topics in the ep include: Matt Mcconaughey and Tom Cruise dying their hair, black rooms, Joe’s early struggles doing stand up in NYC and Florida, comedians wearing bowling shirts, and in a truly universal moment of kismet / time is a flat circle moment – Josh realizes that Joe was one of the first comedians he ever saw on MTV’s Spring Break comedy show. It was a hell of a moment, brother!
