Episode 236: Beyond 16-Bit 7

Here we are with another fifth generation and above focus with a bunch of really great tracks.  Rob dances a lot in this episode, and Brent does not.  He just likes to watch.  But they both talk about dancing a good share and other topics such as adults (and content made for adults) and the length of things in inches, as well as things being unraveled.  Rob also falls asleep.  Full track listing below.

Episode 235: The Saga Of DJ Baby T-Rex

Emily joins Brent, Rob, and Gabe on this episode and they happen to record on April 1, so a good bit of April fooling takes place.  Rob creates a new character named DJ Baby T-Rex, a radio disc jockey who had a thriving on-air career but eventually moves on to other things.  It’s kind of a saga actually.  A legendary saga.  And Brent beatboxes at one point, by the way.  Full track listing below.
