The Old Nickel Zeroes Synergetic Crossover Extravaganza!

April 20, 2018

We're gonna be straight with you. John bailed last minute due to an illness. However, our scheduled guest Lee Martin was almost at Christopher's house. So we did this, a backdoor pilot slash cross-promotional combine the efforts of not only Abram and Christopher of Nickelbackin', but Jukebox Zeroes (featuring Lee), and Old Men Yell At Cloud (Christopher's other podcast)! 

 

We did manage to get off topic a good amount, and we did even sneak in a little update about a certain group of friends of ours from the north.

Episode 015 - Casual Carpooling with the Slugs

March 13, 2018

The lads are back and flying solo this time as they regale each other with tales from the various Boston and Philadelphia buses. Also discussed: the fact that Christopher continues to get made fun of by middle schoolers despite no longer being one, Abram's bathroom time 40s style radio show, and John's fond rememberance of the Fung Wah bus. Oh and Taco Bell, of course. We get a bit weird with this one. Godspeed.

Episode 014 - Text Abe if you like Fish Mash

February 4, 2018

Hello and happy 2018, everyone! Due to various trips around the northern hemisphere and general holiday madness, we had to skip our planned Christmas episode. But fear not! We've returned with a fresh new episode to ring in the new year! Join John, Abram, and Christopher, as they are joined by longtime bud Patrick Vitalone to discuss British cuisine. Is it awful? Is it delicious? Are we just human garbage disposals that are too into chicken parm? Can it be all of the above? Come for the discussion, and stay for the text message notifications/kazoo noises that occur frequently on Abe's end.

Episode 013 - And Ace Did Nothing

November 28, 2017

Coming at you cold from the tail end of Thanksgiving month, Christopher, John, and Abram all holed up in the same room to have a discussion about the makeup-wearing portrait of 1970s excess, KISS. We talk about our own different, often difficult, relationships with the band's music as well as the band members themselves, and why Blabbermouth is possibly the Breitbart news of Nickelback content. 

 

Our theme song is (currently) "Blush" by Calvinball. Check out songwriter Patrick S. Barry's other work at https://gramlins.bandcamp.com/!

Episode 011 - I Like That There Is a Bus

October 19, 2017

After an arduous journey home, Abram is back in Philadelphia and the Tenderboys/Tendermen/TenderBoyz II Men (it's complicated) have finally found time to reconvene from afar. Assisted by Patrick S. Barry (he of our theme song fame), we dive into something we can finally agree to just kinda hate - jam bands. Ugh. We also get into some other things like our cosmic connection with Shane Torres and a fun story about Jimmy Buffet's plane getting shot down. Enjoy!

Episode 010 - The Juggalo-Trump Nonsense Factory

August 18, 2017

Who's that weary traveler knock-knocking on my door? Why, 'tis Abram, in town for a visit! For the first time the three of us sat down in a room to record an episode, and this was a pretty good topic for that purpose. We discussed Walmart in all its glory, talked about derelict strip malls with pizza stands, our friends in the Insane Clown Posse fandom, and much more!

Episode 008 - There is nothing safe about The Lido Shuffle

June 30, 2017

It was inevitable, so we figured we'd just do it. We gave a listen to Nickelback's latest album, "Feed the Machine", and we sat down to discuss whether our feelings about the boys have changed or whether FTM furthers the stereotype. Joining us is noisemaster/trashcaster builder Rick Surette, and we find time to reminisce about unsafe driving conditions in Philadelphia and somehow find a reason to talk about Slint's Spiderland yet again. Also, we announce the Nickelbackin' Theme Song Contest!

Episode 007 - Who’s Afraid of Paul Reiser?

June 20, 2017

Striking while the iron is approaching room temperature, we're back for a special Father's Day recording. Guest host (and dad) Jim McQuaid joins the fray as we discuss the phenomenon of Dad Jokes. Are they funny? Are they lame? Are they akin to fighting or not wearing deoderant? Is Christopher right that Guy Fieri fans should be called Tenderboys? Listen in as we try to crack this particular egg.

Episode 006 - Keep An Eye On That Goat, Mr. Taber!

June 1, 2017

Well what would we be if not a mess? No one knew what our topic was, so we kind of tried to capture it all. Cargo shorts, toe shoes, and Eddie Vedder are all on the table in this one. Speaking of tables, for the first time, Christopher and John recorded together along with guest Chris "Squiggy" Sicuranza around a table, and this ep certainly benefits from that fact. It does not benefit, however, from Christopher's dying compressor which was the culprit in the last episode, as well. RIP, compressor. You've soiled your last podcast.

 

Enjoy!
