Hot podcast, coming through! Its chock full of Allison Crutchfield and Mike Krol, how ‘bout it now? Allison makes an announcement about the return of her band Swearin’ and Swearin’ and Mikes upcoming west coat tour. We talk album covers, Allison joining Mike on Merge records and Mikes roots as a graphic designer.

We talk cool venues and what separates the wheat from the chaff, touring/venue/hospitality wise. And Allison and Mike break down how they have a bit of jealousy about how the other goes about working. It really turns out well, by the end.

But don’t take my word for it. Listen
