Not playing at your house.

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is manned by Prof. Tuffley with Dr. Rob Levy navigating and Widgett Walls serving as head speedbump.

This episode’s central topic is: 2013. What did we learn, if anything at all? We also talk new albums, Coachella, OutKast, the loss of Lou Reed, Phil Everly & others, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, plus our usual dipping into litigation hell.

Also, this is very late going up and you can blame Widge.

The Sound Board #34: Your Scapegoat Finally Gets a Word In

Elvis Hips Censored

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is helmed by Prof. Tuffley with Dr. Rob Levy providing backup and Widgett on hand because every podcast needs a guy wearing an alarm clock around his neck.

This episode’s central topic is: remember the good old days when music and musical shenanigans could shock you? Yeah, us neither. We also discuss: new albums coming; festival lineups; mourning the losses of George Jones, Phil Ramone and Storm Thorgerson; music helping out with the situation in Boston; your Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bitchfest update and more.

The Sound Board #32: Everybody Wants to Rule the Release Schedule For the World

Real Genius: Popcorn Storm

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode is run by Prof. Tuffley, stars Rob Levy and co-stars Widgett as the Beaver.

This episode’s central topic is: the international release schedule. Why hasn’t the industry figured out to just give the people what they want in a timely fashion? We explore it. Also, we look forward to 2013 and backward to our favorites from 2012. There’s also a method for using Coachella to figure out the upcoming new release schedule. We also say goodbye to Dave Brubeck, discuss the retro futurism of Amazon’s Auto Rip, wonder what Dr. Dre and Trent Reznor are getting up to, ponder the return to music of Justin Timberlake, ponder what the hell this Beyonce lip sync thing is all about, marvel at how Jonathan Coulton is kicking Glee‘s arse, and congratulate Adele for selling even more albums.

Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May from Top Gear

Recorded at DragonCon 2012, this panel from the British Media track finds Tuffley joining forces with John Rabon to discuss everyone’s favorite motoring show from across the pond: Top Gear. From the cars to the hijinks by the guys to recounting favorite episodes to the reasons behind some changes in the show. It’s all covered here with the usual sound quality you’ve come to expect from recording stuff live without a net in front of a live studio audience.

The Sound Board #30: Kickstart Out the Jams, Hasenfeffer!

Amanda Palmer on Kickstarter

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month’s episode stars Prof. Tuffley in the chair with Rob Levy in the sidecar working the turret and Widge being dragged behind as always.

This episode’s central topic is…Kickstarter. Is it the future? Is it already on its way to being the past? Should we fear it, embrace it, or simply buy it a latte and remain friends? Plus: a discussion of upcoming festivals.

We also discuss the loss of MCA, Donna Summer, Bob Welch and Robin Gibb.
