As you may have read right here last week, I now have my very own podcast thanks to my buddy Andy Derer of the Andy Derer Show fame. And you know I couldn't be happier about that. I've got tons of complaints about everything from the land of topical music news to the shit that pisses me off at work-and everything Meat Puppets in between. On a weekly basis, I'll try to come here and post show notes as they're needed.
Episode Three contains an opening rant about the restaurant I work at, and the type of customer I deal with from day to day. Contrary to popular belief, I am not having a nervous breakdown in that first 8 minutes.
