Episode 268 - Joe Mulherin, aka nothing, nowhere. joins the show! Now a huge artist, his new album "Trauma Factory" has propelled him to the very top of the emo-rap genre, in both popularity and critical acclaim. Yet, there's so much more to it than that. We discuss his uniqueness (buying and living on a farm, raising animals despite being vegan, straight edge life in his genre, his myriad of hobbies from fitness/meditation/skateboarding/making maple syrup), his early years and upbringing, his humbleness (he never brags!) and dealing with mental health issues. Joe is honest and interesting, forthcoming and inspiring. This episode is not to be missed!

This app seems to work much better than soundcloud. This episode and the other newer ones aren't even on soundcloud yet.

I unintentionally became addicted to listening to Shane's podcast. A coworker would play a random episode each morning on our drive to work. I recommend this broadcast to fans of every genre of music, not strictly Alt. Rock, Punk, and Metal fans. Keep up the great work Shane.
