It's a good thing you can't catch a cold over the airwaves because Kristen's got it good and there are some disgusting (Sarah says they are "cute") nose blows for your listening pleasure. Following that disastrous opening, Kristen talks with Jodi from the band, The Ramoms, and Hannah, who co-owns the awesome company, And Out Come The Boobs. The three discuss being punk rock moms, taking our kids to shows, and how kids can rebel against their rebel parents.  Episode notes: Please visit our sponsor and enter Promo Code: MABLE for half-off an item and FREE SWAG And visit and for exclusive offers

Finally, Stacey Dee is back to offer advice about long distance relationships. 
On this episode, Sarah and Kristen begin by talking about sandwiches, earthquakes and guilty pleasure music. Then, they are joined by Stacey Dee of Bad Cop Bad Cop who answers a fan question about pursuing music or giving it up for the "day job."

This episode starts out with Kristen and Sarah catching up about living a healthy lifestyle, going to shows sober and the interesting ways their lives have paralleled over the past 20 years. Then Kristen talks with Amy Gabba about her new EP, The Heart is Stupid and the amazing musicians who supported her on this project. They discuss philosophy, debate, both almost becoming lawyers and discovering punk rock. Amy opens up about the highs and lows of being a woman in the music industry, including trying out for Canadian Idol and controlling record producers. She also talks about dating, getting hit on at shows and writing this brake up album with her ex. Songs: Ladders by The Anti-Queens and FU Cupid by Amy Gabba

The two stages, which was new this year, yay or nay? Noah's Mable Syndrome cheat sheet and more! Festivals vs club shows... what's up next? Then they discuss AntiFlag and set up the interview. In the second half, Kristen talks with Pat, the drummer of AntiFlag about his new baby, the two week rule, which member of the band knows him best, if there are any political topics the band disagrees on, how he took up drums, and more. Plus, the interview ends abruptly for a funny reason.  Song: One People, One Struggle by AntiFlag
This is a bonus episode coming to you with lots of laughs, so get ready. First, Kristen is joined by her friend Mabel to talk about Chicago punk rock and their recent meet up. Then, Mable plays the game "Porn or Punk Song." Starting at 43:30, Kristen plays a Howard Stern trivia game with none other than Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms, Falcon). Even if you don't know or care about Howard Stern, you should find some humor in them geeking out. Who won, Kristen or Brendan? Or, skip it. Starting around 58:30 Kristen asks Brendan some questions, and since they are both drunk from the Howard Stern game, this goes downhill fast.  Songs: Slowest Drink at the Saddest Bar by The Lawrence Arms and Wonder Beer by Naked Raygun

Then, Sal offers some fun insights into the band, Dead Bars, to set up Kristen's interview with John Maiello. Kristen and John talk about random stuff like moving to Seattle, John's high school band, naciremA, pink drinks, ear plugs and darts. Song: I'm a Regular by Dead Bars
