Brent and I recently travelled to the remote town of Vista, California to be on the Dusty Futon podcast. Despite my suffering a fairly bad hangover, I still managed to greatly enjoy myself. Brent, pictured below, enjoyed himself, too!
Tyler and Big Jon (pictured above) were great hosts, and asked us many deep and personal questions- really getting to soul essence of our band, and ourselves. You can download this episode from their site via this link. If you're pressed for time, and can't enjoy this 40 minute eargasm for yourself, I've prepared a timeline/summary of the episode below.
