The Best Midwestern podcast, with hosts Greg Simpson and Scott Heisel, continues to explore the US midwest state-by-state, here's what Greg has to say about this outing: "On the 9th installment of our state-by-state series, it's the state you've been on the edge of your seat for 8 months for… Kansas! Seriously though, Kansas rules. From being a hub for the second movement of jazz in the 1930s-1950s to rad under-appreciated 80s punk to late 90s emo, Kansas has it all, baby!"

Punknews contributor Greg Simpson has introduced This Might Be a Podcast, a show for They Might Be Giants superfans. On this episode, Greg says this: “This is a big one! The Mountain Goats my second-favorite band behind TMBG, so to talk to one of the greatest modern songwriters about some of the other greatest modern songwriters was a dream come true. Thought the recording was marred by technical difficulties-because of course one of the most important recording of the show thus far would be-everything turned out alright, with a twist ending! John was an early fan of the band and then lost touch with their music in the 90s, coming back to it with their kid’s albums when he became a dad. Hear us talk about how “Apartment 4” off of Here Come the 123s is not only a great kids song, but simply a great song.”
