Needcoffee podcasting

So the podcast returns (earlier than I expected–I just now realized it’s only been one week since the first episode–criminy, what a week). This one covers music and other transgressions and is co-hosted by Rob Levy, Tuffley and myself. Let us know what you think.

This episode’s central topic is “The Difficult Second Album.” Within you will find the the discussion of some bands that didn’t get second albums and should have, along with some bands that did that probably shouldn’t have. Also discussed: break-up songs, “We Are the World,” musical biopics, Roy Orbison, Grammys, Edison, and a serious request for Warren Ellis to take steps.
