DftUnderground Episode 346
BRAD LOGAN and EVA HALL to RATS IN THE WALL from Southern California pick me up on the side of the highway in California and we get down to talk about their incredible music, how they write music together, then we talk about which bands have the least women fans, and finally we talk about safe spaces and the challenge we have on many sides to make these places.

On a personal side note, I am in awe of this band! I love everyone in it and talking with one of my favorite riff writers and one of my favorite lyric writers about how they come up with what they do was super intense and interesting.

And we listen to music from Rats in the Wall, Maladjusted, and HIRS
