Episode 145- A Gondelman-esque Compliment Fest with guest Josh Gondelman

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Every year Dad Bod Rap Pod does something slightly different for these holiday episodes. One year we did a radio-style music mix, the next we told stories from our personal lives, and this year we have a positive, fun conversation about some music that we love with a very special guest. Josh Gondelman is a beloved Twitter institution, a gifted stand up comedian, author of the book Nice Try and a writer and executive producer on Desus & Mero. Josh joined us for a conversation about things we love: The song Bubblz by Anti-Pop Consortium, the Music of MF DOOM, rap songs about everyday life, and the Method Man & Redman album Blackout! We sincerely hope that you enjoy this episode and maybe look to revisit some of the music discussed. It has been and will continue to be a rough year for a wide variety of reasons, but we are sincerely thankful for everyone who listens to DBRP, which is part of the Stony Island Audio podcast network.

Episode 144- Lyric Jones Interview

This week the fellas interview an artist who just released a breakthrough album, Lyric Jones. Her new album Closer Than They Appear was recently released to critical acclaim. Lyric has an interesting backstory, as she is a talented singer, drummer, and classically trained musician who has been making moves in hip-hop for a while. Catching the ear of Little Brother’s Phonte Coleman eventually led to this new album’s creation. The fellas also discuss some near-classic rap albums, Sesame Street, and proper beard length. Beats this week are by Spectacular Diagnostics and we appreciate the submission. DBRP is brought to you by the Stony Island Audio network.
