Kate Hoos of Lady Bizness, Cop/Out, and Punk Island is back this week to get down and talk about her other passion photography. We talk about how music and live photography go together, and then we break down how gender impacts all of this. We walk through how women are often encouraged into the visual arts and discouraged from performative arts, how we can change that, and how we can ensure to support all the artists in our scenes whatever type of art they make. 

Plus we listen to music from Lady Bizness, Basic Bitches, Enziguri, and Trophy Wife

Jason Tancer, my brother and bandmate from All Torn Up!, gets down to get some perceptive on our recent ATU European tour with Leftöver Crack, and touring in other countries in general. We talk a ton of shit as usual, and hopefully give you a little bit of insight about what it is like to be on tour with LoC, but we also try to process some of the differences between bringing conscious punk music to shows in the US vs. shows abroad, and spend some time processing all the wonderful people we met all over who firmly live life outside the confines of capitalist relations and treated us like family! But mostly we just talk about dumb shit that happened on tour.

Plus we listen to tunes from Leftöver Crack, All Torn Up!, Atavistic Traits, Con Era, and Deathbus.

Steve Morton gets down to talk about CULTS. First we talk a bunch of shit about the hulu show THE PATH and try to see if there was anything worth taking from that mainstream show.
