Jonny stops by to help show you how easy booking a tour can be while Eamonn and Billy talk so much inside baseball...well, there's a lot of inside baseball. It's a doomy Episode 95!
Doing a cover is always a dicey proposition. If people like it, you become the band that does this great cover (I think their original stuff is okay?) and if people hate it, you've just burned a song in the set that you could have played one of your own for them to hate instead. We've tried a lot over the years. Also, the Dick Van Dyke Show and Jerry Lewis Soccer All-Stars. It's Episode 94!
Billy and Eamonn finish recounting the first leg of the Pale Summer tour and discuss the art involved in letting a band into your home. It's a Pride Parade Invaded Episode 93!
The first international episode live on tape from a hotel room in Toronto! This is so late that there isn't time for a recap. It's Episode 92!
The greatest band documentary of all time? We think so. Grab your band therapist and listen up to a docu-heavy Episode 93!

Another drive home on the way from practice, but wait! There's Taco Bell, building managers, and nothing else remotely interesting about the music of The Kickback, but you might want to listen anyway. Why? HAVE YOU EVER RIDDEN HOME WITH A BAND FROM BAND PRACTICE? Didn't think so. See you for a compelling Episode 84!
Consequence of Sound Senior Staff Writer Dan Caffrey stops by DISASTOUR to discuss his approach to criticism, the best part of the Yeezus tour, and how the second coming entails Michael Keaton with a blues band. Oh come all ye faithful, the merriest of season's greetings and tidings of great joy to you and yours this Episode 82!
As we attempt to get back into "on the road" podcasting, you'll catch a glimpse of the strain that van problems, cancelled flights, and god-awful weather can provide. Recorded mostly in voice memos between Chicago and New York, jump in the van for a taste of touring. It's an Interstate 80 special Episode 81!
