David Bazan and Yuuki Mathews take time out of their west coast tour to sit down at Bro-Bro Studios with Horatio and Chad. Horatio and Dave reminisce about their 10 year friendship and how they met. Horatio reveals a secret about what is actually in his inhaler and Chad finally gets the intervention he’s been asking for and then runs. Joe Show comes by and breaks down the Blurred Lines of copyright law and the music industry. All music copyright David Bazan, except for that Shins song we used… oh and there is a second or two of Blurred Lines… maybe another one that just slipped past.
