The Popdose Podcast: Episode 24 – Julian Velard

It’s easier and more affordable than it’s ever been to record, release, and distribute music, and one might think that, given the explosion of EPs, albums, and singles we’ve witnessed over the last 15 years or so, technology might have at long ...

Comrades Podcast: Episode 12, “Operation Chronicle”

We like to use big words here on the Comrades podcast. This week’s special word is penultimate, which, according to dictionary.com, means “next to the last.” “Operation Chronicle” is the penultimate episode of season 2 of The Americans, another excellent hour in what ...

Welcome once again to Comrades, a weekly podcast dedicated to the FX drama series, The Americans. Popdose TV Editor, Scott Malchus, is once again joined by Jeff Marsick and they breakdown the latest episode, “Martial Eagle.” The guys only had an hour this week, ...

Comrades Podcast: Episode 9, “New Car”

This week’s especial Easter edition of Comrades features an in depth discussion of Christianity and its effect on the Soviet spy circa 1982.

Instead it’s another hour plus discussion of The Americans, the brilliant FX series about two KGB agents living ...

Comrades Podcast: Episode 8, “Arpanet”

Michael Parakeeton? There’s no reason Malchus should be laughing so hard to this joke. Anyway, the boys return for another episode of Comrades, their weekly discussion about The Americans. This week’s ep had a lot of computer mumbo jumbo, at least, that’s ...

Comrades Podcast: Episode 7, “Behind the Red Door”

Well, Malchus has an actual excuse for the tardiness of this week’s podcast. He was in Arizona visiting the parental units (that’s an ’80s phrase, in case you were wondering). The rush to get the podcast done is his only excuse for ...

Comrades Podcast: Episode 6, “The Deal”

Boy, this season has been great, with each episode better than the last. But you know that, otherwise you wouldn’t be back here, checking out the latest episode of Comrades.  This week, Jeff and Scott not only break down the latest episode, ...

Comrades Podcast: Episode 4, “The Walk In”

Welcome back to Comrades, a weekly podcast/discussion/ramblefest about the FX series, The Americans. This week’s stellar episode of the show was entitled “The Walk In.” It featured a distracted Elizabeth, Paige taking a road trip, and Stan getting a big reward. Okay, ...

Comrades Podcast: Episode 3, “Cardinal”

Dinner plans and busy work schedules. These are the reasons for the delay in the latest podcast! Welcome back to Comrades, a weekly podcast devoted to the FX drama, The Americans. In this week’s edition, Jeff and Scott spend a late ...

A Fine Mess, Episode 6: Songwriter Darden Smith

One of the biggest sources of pop music’s appeal is its immediacy — the way a well-written song can take you on an emotional journey in 3:05, and have you singing along by the time it’s finished. My guest for this edition ...

The Matt ‘N’ Jeff Radio Hour, Episode 27: The Singhs

With the above picture, we feel compelled to explain a few things. No Popdose staffers were harmed during the recent construction of this podcast, although you will notice that Jeff Giles (forever our fearless leader) is suspiciously missing. Shortly after this podcast ...

A Fine Mess, Episode 5: Musician Dean Jones

“There were a bunch of years there where I kind of lived in tents and people’s closets.”

If you’ve been a hardcore Popdose reader for any length of time (and I love you if you are), you’re probably aware that for a ...

The Popdose Interview: Terry Scott Taylor of Daniel Amos

Calling Terry Scott Taylor a “hero” of mine makes me kind of itchy. Taylor doesn’t seem the type to court throngs to elevate him to hero status, and when he has it has been strictly for the sake of sarcasm and satire. ...

The Matt ‘N’ Jeff Radio Hour, Episode 21: Ed Romanoff

We run the Matt ‘N’ Jeff Radio Hour under the guiding principle that everyone has a story — and if the artist’s music moves us, we’re interested in hearing that story, whether or not the act in question is a household name. ...
