Mad Sounds / Honky Chat



A confused feed hosting 2 podcasts at the moment. Mad Sounds, abiweekly music-talk/review show hosted by Mark Berman (Fully Involved) & Johnny Goens (Viralrak/Charlemagne's Menagerie), went on hiatus in early 2018. Currently, the focus is on the much more niche Honky Chat, where Mark & co-host Steffi Moreno listen through & comment on Elton John's entire discography... most of which came out long before they were born.

    In the second episode with special guest ACriticNamedKevin, we go down a long list I made as a songwriting exercise, argue about the new Bruno Mars album, come together to make fun of Simple Plan, and somehow end up riffing on Radio Disney charts. This one's a little more conversational, and maybe the better for it, // MY "BEST HITS SONGS OF 2016" VIDEO: / My Twitter: @SpinItReviews / Today's guest: @ACriticNamedKev
