Podcast On episode 254 of the Punknews Podcast, John Gentile and Adam White are joined by our returning guest host Nikki of the Clash-worshipping Everything and the Kitchen Sink podcast. We discuss the Clash, of course, or at the very least their questionable Twitter doppelgangers, and revisit the big Apple Music debate in light of their post-Taylor Swift change of heart. We also discuss what state the Misfits will be in without Dez Cadena in the mix, as well as Neil Young feuding with the Donald over use of "Rockin' In The Free World" at a campaign rally.

Punknews Podcast: Episode 253

Posted by adam on Sunday, June 21, 2015 at 8:40 PM (EDT)
Podcast This is episode 253 of the Punknews Podcast, with John Gentile, Adam White and Ricky Frankel. The ever thorny mailbag asks this week how touring bands and record labels should react if an associated band is accused (but not yet found guilty of) of sexual assault. We wrestle with this topic and discuss recent news featuring the Beastie Boys, Against Me!, and Bad Cop/Bad Cop. We also argue with each other the good and evil of the new Apple Music service, at least as we understand it.

This episode features music from the aforementioned Los Angeles act Bad Cop/Bad Cop and the Sackville, NB act Kappa Chow.

Punknews Podcast: Episode 252

Posted by adam on Sunday, June 14, 2015 at 8:30 PM (EDT)
Podcast It’s the therapy episode of the Punknews Podcast. Episode 252 finds Adam White in the midst of an ill-defined existential crisis, John Gentile ready to walk the path of peace, and Adam Eisenberg, well, Adam E doesn’t have any particular problem. He does live in Florida though, and as I understand it that’s enough of a problem for anyone. On this episode we discuss Punk Rock Bowling cheaters, the next Fat Music compilation, the new banger from High On Fire, Sex Pistols credit cards, that terrifying Svetlanas video, the Ceremony remix, and Screaming Females covering Taylor Swift.

...and just like the rest of Punknews, it was 1995 week on the podcast as well. We spin some of our favourites from that year including classic tunes from The Riverdales, Sublime and The Planet Smashers.
