Back for a few days from a tour through Europe and Australia, Joel and Shane had the fortune of hosting Brett Newski in the ABOG studio for a quick chat about his musical beginnings.

Hear about the first job he took in order to save for a guitar, sharting his pants while having to learn how to sing with an audience present and few other funny stories from arguably the hardest working musician currently living in Milwaukee.

Joel and Shane sit down for a fascinating conversation with Milwaukee music producer and engineer Michael Mann of MusicMann Studios. Joel worked with Mike on his recent release Rising EP and realized during those sessions the sense of humor he has combined with his immense knowledge of music and audio would make for a great discussion on the podcast. Mike shares the three cycles of his music career and the path that got him into audio and gets technical about recording, producing, mastering, audio formats and Loudness war. He's a gamer so the guys get him to share what he's been playing lately at the end of the show.

Bill dreams of living in a city built from Legos, finds paradise among the clouds, and provides a shot of testosterone to his man-cave. Joel gets some hands-on time with Nintendo's latest, dukes it out with the most lethal bounty hunter in the universe, and gets his acoustical groove back.

You'll get more than you bargained for this time around. Bill betrays his family, exploits his son's fears and has a mild Segasm, while Joel tastes brawler defeat, exhibits signs of a DmC stroke and cuts the proverbial cord. Things get weird as shit after talking about the Midwest Gaming Classic and we both struggle with saying our goodbyes.

Bill and Joel co-op with the community to discuss co-op. First off, positive examples and then a thought provoking discussion regarding the future of co-op specifically what we'd do with the genre if we had an unlimited development budget and no technological limitations.
