The Sound Board #23: A Decade of Stupid Contagion

Nirvana: Smiley Face

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is hosted by Dr. Rob Levy with support from Prof. Tuffley and Widgett Walls.

This episode’s central topic wobbles around a bit, but it’s basically: the 90s. More specifically, two albums that have turned twenty years old: Nevermind by Nirvana and Ten by Pearl Jam. We talk of, around, above and behind both albums and what they meant to music in general. Before we get there, however, we go through some high points of the upcoming fall release schedule. We also say goodbye to Nickolas Ashford and Jerry Leiber, as well as Glen Campbell. Also discussed is Metallica and Lou Reed getting together…plus a new album from Doris Day?

    Your Weekend Justice #125: James Spader, Acting Gristle

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that creates verbs where they are proper nouns just to see if anyone’s paying attention. Usually they are, but they couldn’t care less. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.
