One Bad Mother Episode 60: Teething, plus guest Ellen Harper

| 3 comments
Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Ellen Harper

Biz and Theresa talk about teething and back up the discussion with so many scientific facts that we consider having the show recategorized from comedy to science. Note: "facts" stated by Biz and Theresa may not be true / may make you less smart.

Plus, Theresa advises you to never leave before the raffle, and Biz gets weird about a comment on last week’s show. We're joined by singer-songwriter Ellen Harper to talk about the new album Childhood Home, which is a collaboration with her son Ben Harper.

TS141: Rick Perry, Assassin’s Creed, the Banger Sisters, Guest Sara Benincasa

Show: 
Throwing Shade

This week, Throwing Shade doesn’t make any sense! First of all, Rick Perry compares homosexuality to alcoholism. Then Erin takes a look at how the makers of the video game Assassin’s Creed have the worst and most confusing explanations as to why they don’t include female characters. And finally, the hilarious and smart Sara Benincasa talks to us about Uber, coming out as bisexual, and agoraphobia. Oh, and which Banger Sister are you?

Song Exploder № 12: Converge

Show: 
Song Exploder
Guests: 
Kurt Ballou
Guests: 
Jacob Bannon

The band Converge formed in 1990, when its members were teenagers. They've been making music that lives somewhere in the intersection of punk, hardcore, and metal for almost 25 years. Guitarist Kurt Ballou spoke to me from his studio GodCity, which is where Converge writes and records. I also spoke over the phone with singer Jake Bannon. Coming up, they'll talk about how the physical space of GodCity influenced their songwriting, how the Boston hardcore scene gave them a home, and how to get the classic Swedish death metal guitar tone.

Buy "Dark Horse" on iTunes here. Converge's website is convergecult.com. They're also on Facebook and Twitter.
