The Popdose Podcast: Episode 19

Mothers. Where would we be without them? I mean, yeah, there’s the whole “birth” thing. But that’s not what I’m talking about. When I say “we,” I’m talking about “the podcast schmucks.” Our mothers have given us ample material ...

Advertising Focus: Woe to Thee, Farrellys

You don’t have to feel sorry for the Farrelly Brothers, but I do. I realize that a lot of the flack they get is directly related to their brand of gross-out humor which they’ve been dragging along since their first big ...

Popdose 2010: Michael Parr’s Top Albums

Jeff: This is turning into a problem.

Jason: Right?

Jeff: People keep sending us Mellowmas stuff. Last year, Will Harris sent ...

The Eleventh Day of Mellowmas: Wangmas (Chungmas?)

Jeff: We should probably begin by giving “credit” for this song where it’s due, shouldn’t we?

Jason: Beelzebub?
