Periodically John Gentile and I (for the record, I'm Adam White) shed off the very thin veneer of planning that goes into the Punknews Podcast and just talk without a guideline for an hour or so. Episode 259 is one of these. We cover such groundbreaking punk topics as my family vacation to Ottawa, John's travels for work, and records we acquired along the way. We also chat about a big recent controversy surrounding the Hamilton hardcore band Chokehold that's been making the rounds online. Round it out with some esoteric Sandinista facts and you've got yourself a show.
We play music this episode from New Swears and Screaming Females.

Earlier this week, Morrissey stated that he was sexually assaulted by TSA. Morrissey states that while he was in San Francisco, after he went through security, an inspector came over and grabbed his testicles and penis. After posting his tale at official Morrissey fansite True to You, TSA responded via Rolling Stone. According to TSA, they did nothing wrong and all inspections were per policy, though they do not explicitly deny grabbing Morrissey's genitals.
