Comedian, writer, painter and civic organizer Meredith Kachel is our guest. She brought four songs with her, all of which are perfect playlist fodder (find them in the Spotify playlist on the link below). We watch Rubber Johnny by Aphex Twin, talk Roger's Park shooter, and Mary opens up a mystery box of Amazon stuff she ordered while asleep and has no memory of what it is. Meredith teaches us how to defraud your parents and we listen to: Paul Simon & Nico Segal, Muddy Waters, Otis Redding, Poolside, Jean Grae, Isiah Rashad, and Make Believe Ballroom Time!
Comedian Dave Vagnetti (the Palm Pilots, High Dive Comedy) comes on to help put a bow on the final chapter of the Mac Miller sage - his last album, Swimming. Mary tries out some character work. Dave likes a really dumb song by Tom Petty. Other Dave thinks Today in Music is a fun segment.
We watch the movie Eighth Grade and discuss the soundtrack as well as our own eighth grade experiences. We each pick two songs that we listened to in eighth grade and try to defend them while being questioned by the other about our tenure in middle school. We also review an exceptional fan music video for a Rick Ross song, review two albums (Ab-soul and Drake) as well as discuss one of the most historic days in music history EVER!
