In this episode, the guys write a love letter to Primus on the 25th anniversary of Tales from the Punchbowl, a foundational piece of The Itch's history. Topics include:

  • How to mine a live album debut for a decade
  • When funk metal makes you reconsider your career path
  • How to use Metallica and Deftones to put children to bed
  • The omnipresence of Taco Bell
  • Concerts that involve candy bars and jumping elephants
  • Why you should take a chance on random CDs from flea markets, libraries, and college radio station bins
  • A tribute to Extreme Radio, the station that inspired The Itch

Plus, Aaron quotes two stand-up comics and recites poetry!
