Having family on as guests could be dicey...unless it's the good kind of family. Our guests this week are known to many as the hosts of This Ends At Prom, but in this house? They're known as Aunt BJ & Aunt Harmony. We've often mentioned one another on our respective podcasts because we're supporters of one another. But also because we truly are family! We get into all the things you'd expect family members to get into. Lots of reminiscing and silly conversations to be had! We miss them terribly. You can find BJ at @bjcolangelo on Twitter & Instagram You can find Harmony at @velocitraptor on Twitter & Instagram AND you can find This Ends At Prom at @ThisEndsAtProm on both (as well as wherever you get your podcasts!)
FOOLED YOU! Daniel and Bonesaw take a trip down memory lane on this super-sized, two-part episode of Why Did We Ever Meet?! It's Part B, and we're getting drunker! Daniel and Bonesaw talk about High School and College, and reminisce about going to shows, anime, and Adult Swim! And maybe Iron Chef! I can't remember if that was on Part A or Part B! At this point I've been drinking for four hours! Also, a New Japan edition of We Fucking?, and Daniel suggests doing a draft from said game of We Fucking?, but then both of them forget to do it because of alcohol! WWW.JABRONIU.COM

FOOLED YOU! Daniel and Bonesaw take a trip down memory lane on this super-sized, two-part episode of Why Did We Ever Meet?! In Part A, they talk about how they met in middle school, and how video games, The Simpsons, and Pro-Wrestling turned them into fast friends! Then, they do a classic NES version of Pass or Trash!

Did we think TikTok would lead to us finding incredible guests and new friendships? No, but here we are! Our guests this week are Jen Joyce and Lars Laing-Peterson. This couple has a lot in common with your hosts: One extrovert, one not so much. Jen is known to many on TikTok as knitpurl where she's created her own special community of tattooed knitters, crocheters, and all things maker. But how did she land on OUR radar? By acknowledging and celebrating what's known as the "elder emo". What's an elder emo? Well, if you're of a certain age, poured over getting your hands on The latest Emo Diaries comp, sported a Quicksand pin on your gas station worker's jacket, and made sure to include Samiam on your mixtapes for that person you're crushin' on to give yourself the right kinda cred...then you're an elder emo. Beyond the music discussion, we're 2 couples getting to know one another and you're privy to the first time meeting. They're wonderful folks who we feel like we'd known for 20 years. We had a blast with them and you can expect us to do it again. You can find Jen on TikTok (and Instagram & Twitter) at: @knitpurl and you can find Lars on Instagram at: @larsgarvey
When you set up an interview like this, it always leaves you a little nervous. You worry whether they'll be receptive to the discussion. Well, as you're soon about to find out, that's not the case with our guest. This week's guest, Jonah Matranga, is a crucial part of the emo & post-hardcore scene that shaped an entire generation of music. His band Far has an influence still being felt today. But, much like his music, there's far more to Jonah. The conversation is open, beautiful, candid, and at times, emotional. When we say heavy, we mean it in the absolute best way possible. What you'll find out (if you didn't already know) is that Jonah is a beautiful and gifted performer and music is his tool by which he does so. We're incredibly proud of this episode and we feel certain you'll love it. Jonah's latest album, PSONGS, is available now. To find out more, visit: www.jonahmatranga.com OR find him on instagram & twitter at @jonahmatranga
The 60th episode calls for a landmark guest...and baby, do we have a landmark guest for YOU! Andre Gower is known to SO MANY of us as Sean, leader of the gang in the cult hit The Monster Squad. A few years ago, the film was thought to be a "long lost gem" until fan demand willed a DVD release. The floodgates soon opened. After seeing the impact the movie had on its fanbase, Andre felt compelled to document this. This comes in the form of the documentary Wolfman's Got Nards, a documentary covering the lasting legacy of the beloved film. Our conversation covers this and much more. It's an absolute blast and SPOILER ALERT; he's every bit as wonderful as you'd guessed! To find out where to watch Wolfman's Got Nards, visit: www.thesquaddoc.com and find it on Instagram at @thesquaddoc as well as find Andre at @andregowerofficial
What started out as a single guest episode turned into 2 guests...more bang for your buck! Vinny Malave is a name you may be familiar with. He's been a frequent guest on the PWT Cast. He's also a member of the Pro Wrestling Tees crew. But, WE know Vinny from his passion project that's become his future...The Cryptic Closet. Joined by his brother, Moses Gibson, the 2 of them have carved a unique niche in the horror and pop culture world with their left-of-the-dial designs that stand out in a sea of black t shirts. We talk about the evolution of the Cryptic Closet, what it's like to go viral, and a million other things that sidetracked us. The pandemic took all our hangout time away, so we were cramming all into one episode. If it's not clear, we love these boys like family.

This week's guests are one prolific couple of artists! As a filmmaker, Chris's career has had a profound influence on low budget independent filmmaking. His films WNUF Halloween Speial & Call Girl of Cthulhu are beloved amongst horror & cult movie lovers. She is an actress (see the aforementioned movies), singer, producer, director AND moonlights as horror host Aurora Gorealis (phew!)! In addition to all of this, they also have a band together called Beach Creeper. Would you believe me if I said Chris also curates an oddities museum as well? At this point, I'm sure you would! When we made a list of people we wanted as guests on the show, the LaMartina's were some of the first people we wrote down. This conversation lives up to the expectations, too. We cover a LOT of territory and I think listeners are gonna fall in love with these 2. Keep an eye out for news on their latest film, What Happens Next Will Scare You, which will be available soon. Find both of them on Instagram: (@chris.lamartina) www.instagram.com/chris.lamartina (@melissalamartina) www.instagram.com/melissalamartina (@auroragorealis) www.instagram.com/auroragorealis

We're back at it, baby! Some classics have been pulled out for this episode. Oreos get the Pass Or Trash treatment. And the X-Men go through the rigors in "We Fuckin'?" due to Cash & Ash working their way through the MCU. We talk about Judas & The Black Messiah, Saint Maud, Twin Peaks, and special guests Drew Kistler (The Draft Pod) and Kevin Aldridge (Musician, Genius) tell harrowing poop tales! Get into it!
This is what we call a BIG GET here at WDWEM! Our guest this week fronted the influential punk rock band New Bomb Turks (We's favorite band EVER!). But that's just the tip of the iceberg. A well known writer, Davidson also authored the book We Never Learn: The Gunk Punk Undergut, 1988-2001 which chronicles some of the most influential bands from the era that birthed the Turks, but also gives a snapshot of the other side of punk that wasn't about skateboards & chain wallets. This is a mere snapshot of our conversation though. Ohio, the pandemic, and even the Italian mafia makes an appearance in this conversation. We were honored to have Eric on the show!

Special episode this week. Dad & Cash sit down for a one on one. I try and get into the head of a teenager...it's a strange place. We talk about what it's like to be a kid like Cash in a school that doesn't always understand or support free thinking. He also says crazy shit as expected. AND he gives you a little bit of John Prine at the end. www.jaborniu.com

TRIGGER WARNING: THEMES OF SEXUAL ASSAULT AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE The fanfare is over, the dipshits lost and we have a new president. What a wild ass few months it's been! So, we don't shy away from that. We get into it, the feelings behind seeing a regime change after 4 awful years. We also discuss 2 films: Hunted & Promising Young Woman and the conversation does get heavy. While it may be uncomfortable to discuss, we think it's important to discuss the themes therewithin, and present our honest conversation. Those movies really struck a nerve and we went with it. We hope you enjoy it and hope it allows you to open a dialogue of your own.

We're joined this week by our buddy and yours, Scrump! Scrump is one of the hosts of the PWT Cast-The Official Podcast of Pro Wrestling Tees. While we know Scrump as someone we love like family, we thought it would be EVEN BETTER to share that wonderful human being with you. We talk about movies, the pandemic, and Scrump gives us a breakdown of the hellscape that is dating in the modern age. Enjoy getting to know one of the best damn people on the planet!

Look...we all saw how the week played out. May as well address this insanity head on! The Club chats about the absolute disaster that was the insurrection that took place in Washington, along with making fun of the various idiots involved. Mocking by the truckload! Roxie's terrible week is discussed along with how ol' Dad is feeling about little idiots who made his daughter sad. Spoiler alert: he's not dealing with it well. And we close out with our new segment "We Fuckin'?" where 90's musicians get objectified! Enjoy!

Happy New Year, kids! We're back & giving you an episode of no direction, off-the-cuff, conversation. We start off on resolutions/revelations/self-manifested prophecies, then talk about the history of our kids' cartoon favorites, THEN head into a new segment that we're gonna try and coerce Kevin Aldridge into writing a theme song for...we're back & giving you a Cash & Roxie heavy episode. Enjoy, spread the word, support Jabroni U Network!
Final show of 2020. Glad this shit is over? Us too. We talk about the holidays, share some of your favorite memories of the show so far, Cash gets really inappropriate OFTEN, and we take one last trip to the Conspiracy Corner for the year. Have a safe & happy new year!
Happy Holidays! We've brought you an extra special present for the holidays...our first interview episode! Bear with us as we master that process. Our first guest is a very special one to us. Writer, Director, Producer Chris Seaver has been cultivating his absurdist corner on the low budget film market for 30 years. We discuss the ups and downs of making your own films for 3 decades and what that looks like in 2020. But that's not ALL we talk about! Chris is a dear friend of mom & dad's for 16 or so years. This conversation was everything we'd hoped for. Chris is very candid about himself, his career, and life in general. So unbelievably happy we were able to record this with him. We hope you all enjoy the interview and enjoy your holiday season! We love you!
WHOO BOY what a weird night we have to discuss! We start out with some light fodder by showering praises on 2 of the best films of 2020; Sound Of Metal & Freaky. But, we quickly turn to the events of the following evening involving Ashley, Cash, Wes, and what happens when someone is unknowingly woken from a dead sleep. It's...it's really something. We also take a trip to the Conspiracy Corner to discuss Kurt Cobain's death and if it's linked to Jeffrey Epstein. Yeah. You read that right.

Welcome to "The Episode That Almost Wasn't". This was take 2 on this week's episode because, well...we logged onto Omegle and it did not go well. Cash & The Equinox tell us about the teenage experience with this hellscape of a website. So, you find out what it's like to log onto a site that probably shouldn't even exist. The dangers of talking to strangers still exists, kids. Wes explains why he doesn't like John Hughes (things get into the weeds a bit, but it makes sense). They also discuss their love of Adam Sandler and the evolution of teenage boy shit. Join us in a recap of the one that got away.
