JC: Yeah. I would say this is a very good option. One day, we’ll have computers pinned in our sights so we can actually present in bed and work that way.
MC: Oh boy.
LG: It all comes in full circle.
MC: Maybe a warm gel bath.
LG: Okay, Mike, what’s your recommendation this week?
MC: I will recommend a podcast. It is a podcast of music history. it’s called And submit itJust two words, And submit it. So I need to take you 20 years back because in 2001, a book came out by journalist Michael Azirad. it’s called Our group could be your life. There are a bunch of chapters in this book, and each chapter focuses on the history of one band from the 1980s and 1990s Underground. So there are chapters on Sonic Youth and The Replacements, Butthole Surfers, Minor Threat, Black Flag, Dinosaur Jr. , Fugazi. Basically any major underground 80’s rock band is featured in this book.
So this podcast, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this very popular and very touching book, is making one episode around each chapter. So you get one episode for every band in the book. To get around it all, eventually they’ll have Michael Azerrad, author of the book, on their podcast as an interviewer to cover.
So, it’s a pretty wild ride. You just have to do these deep dives in these gangs. The hosts are really fun. You learn a lot. Even if you have read the book, there is still information to learn. This is my recommendation to anyone who has read and loved this book, or anyone who has this book sitting on its shelf and hasn’t quite grasped it. And submit it Brings you inside it.
LG: Mike, I just want to pause for a moment because I’m dumbfounded. I think I’m silent and dumbfounded. Do you recommend a music podcast?
MC: Yeah. Podcast History of Nerdy Music.
LG: Gosh. This is out of character.
MC: It really is. I think it might be time to launch a podcast of my music history.
LG: I think you should.
MC: This is what all my friends do. It seems like something to do.
LG: You’ll be good at that. You’ll be cool … you can do a podcast about music history podcasts.
MC: This is what is needed. This is what is needed. Lauren, please tell us which music podcasts you recommend
LG: As much as you made fun of Gilead earlier, my recommendation this week is actually akin to Gilead. I highly recommend the ice cream.
MC: This is Gilead too.
LG: This is. Just ice cream. Please, I hope vegetarians won’t get upset. There is vegan ice cream there, too. Yeah. Or lactose intolerance there. I’m so sorry, but I do recommend the ice cream.
MC: Always a strong recommendation, but why now?
LGKaito: I’m on the East Coast with Julian now. And it’s very, very warm. I forgot how wet it is here. I feel the moisture fades away from me throughout the day. But I miss it here. I swear you guys.
Also, I live with my brother’s family, my niece and nephew are here, and they are kids. They are teens, but they are kids, and they love ice cream. And so we’d go out for ice cream in the evening, which is really cool. It’s just a nice little slice of summer. I can spend time with my niece and nephew. We went to this little farm last night here, sat outside and had some ice cream. I had vanilla with Heath Bar Crunch and Fudge Hot. My niece had an ice cream called Play-Doh. It was a bright yellow, and it was actually like a Play-Doh. It was nauseous to look at her. My nephew … I don’t remember what he had, but then he mocked my mother, grandmother, for getting pistachios. He said, “It’s the flavor of an old lady.” I was like, “Be nice.”
