I started the podcast last night right after it was released. Which was a major mistake.

I’ve now had “Waiting For a Star To Fall” by Boy Meets Girl stuck in my head for almost 12 hours.

Thanks guys.

Thanks. Now it’s in my head again.

This return was everything I had hoped for!

I’m going to be honest. I love the live Sum 41. I love Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground. But that intro was not good. It will probably grow on me, but it felt very choppy and did not flow very well for me. Great show, but I wasn’t feeling the intro.

I liked it :man_shrugging:

My hopes of you being able to include Foreigner’s “I’ve been waiting for a girl like you” into the show intro has been crushed, likely by Rusev, but I love the live Sum41 version on the new theme song.

I decided to watch the show before listening to the podcast and it was a half-decent show.
