Amy and Mitchell spend this week checking out the dumpster offerings and curbside pick-up to find treasure underneath the used cat litter and soggy couches. They take their mother’s advice and only try to say nice things. Metal Johnny finds a way to gross even Amy out and Mitchell finds ways to compliment horrible songs against his better judgement.
While they come across as sweet innocent podcasters, Mitchell and Amy are carrying some bitter, sarcastic, snarky grudges that don’t seem to be dying anytime soon. In this magnificent example of how great the songs made out of bitterness, Amy cusses quite a bit and Mitchell admits how much he loves this theme.
We are somber this week and ask that all hold close the memories we have of those we have lost.

In this episode featuring songs about the night life, Mitchell and Amy realize that the Earbuddies are probably not raving as hard as previously thought. Enjoy this collection of thoughtful musing on what happens while we are awake at night (and it is not sipping exctasy).
While Amy tried to make this an all ska all the time episode, this is actually about those brassy, brassy horns (and totally includes saxophones but not flutes). Mitchell, as usual, brings all the knowledge and maybe, just maybe, has legit trumpet roots while not marching in marching band with all the cool kids in high school. Horns, horns, and more horns.
The album opener is the song that just opens up the door to the album and this week is all about those songs. Some songs are just an eclectic choice and some songs set the mood for the entire album. Even though this is a normally quite eclectic podcast, this week really shows off how eclectic the Earbuddies can be.
This week is all about the ladies but in the opposite way as that creepy dude on Instagram who slides into the DMs. This is a celebration of talent and joy and music made for, by, or about women as our way of marking Women’s History Month (which is apparently March much to Amy’s surprise.)
