About The Show

A wide-eyed optimist tries to convince a couple of skeptics to get on board with their distinctive, sometimes downright unusual obsession. But really, it’s just an excuse for silliness, games, and surprise guests. Hosted by Ben Cassil, Thayer Frechette, and Geoff Kaufman.

This is the first episode of Rocktober in Novemby and a little in Decemby, so you know we’re gonna rock out! Matt Apodaca (@MattApodaca) loves the rock band Weezer. Ben and Thayer are aware of them, but have no idea about most of the music, but are eager to hear it! Geoff’s on vacation. Matt takes us through almost all of Weezer’s discography from Self-Titled to Self-Titled (Weezer has a lot of self-titled albums), sampling some of the tracks we love, and cool deep cuts we weren’t aware of. We also hear about who was president during different Weezer eras and how that affects lyrical content. Matt is a very funny, and incredibly passionate about Weezer, which makes this episode a real good time.
