We’re back with another undeniably exciting episode of Hyper Nonsense! Jen’s not here this time around but that’s OK ’cause we’ve got special guest Matt Sams! This is Matt’s second time being on Hyper Nonsense. Last time we talked to him, he was in the midst of his first 365-song (recording one new song every day) project. 2016 is a leap year and Matt is taking advantage of the extra day to challenge himself with a 366-song project. We talked about the project, as well as Matt’s recent experience opening for the Smashing Pumpkins. And more!
The recording of this episode made podcasting history! We broadcasted the show live via Periscope using our audio rig, thus making us the first podcast ever to stream via Periscope with high-quality audio. During the show, we talked about the ongoing California drought and whether or not it’d be a good idea to get out now before the Droughtpocalypse happens. Next, Jen opened some birthday boxes sent to us by Tiggr. We read a little bit of listener feedback and then finished off the show with a news item about politicians who get smacked down for improperly using songs.
We’re back in the studio for a “normal” episode of Hyper Nonsense. Jen’s even here, too! On this show we talked about a sketchy “new” podcasting website and why Jen is on a mission to take it down. We talked about a weird experience we had in which another podcast played a clip from one of our episodes. We sang a special song about cats. We talked about a surprise Neil Young concert we got to attend. Then, we read over some listener feedback and we finished the show with a news item about a drug-buying robotic art installation.
Man, we’re getting old. Don’t believe us? Just listen to this pod! We spent a lot of time talking about toothbrushes and shopping coupons. Still don’t believe us? We also talked about new bedroom curtains! Some of this old-person talk is relative to the new business we’re launching, but some of it’s just because we’re old. Last week was Independence Day here in ‘Merica. We’ve got some explosive news related to that, as well as an analysis of the country’s favorite 4th of July jams. Also, we read some iTunes reviews and go over a little bit of other listener feedback. And MmmPasta Syndrome.
