Greg Graffin

Bad Religion lead singer Greg Graffin joined the show to talk about a new authorized biography of the band, "Do What You Want: The Story of Bad Religion." We discussed making music during a pandemic, achieving success as an independent band, and why the 1980s East Coast punk scene tends to be overlooked.

The Big Wakeup Call’s 10th Anniversary Show!

We celebrated an entire decade of whatever it is we do here with calls from some of our favorite and most frequent guests, including Scott Aukerman from "Comedy Bang Bang," Ben Gleib from "Idiotest" and the new "Nowhere Comedy Club," Dylan Brody from "The Corona Dialogues," Best-selling authors and fashion bloggers Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan, and the only member of the 400 timers club, the World News Center's Bill McCormick. We also revisited clips from some of my favorite interviews over the years, including Graham Nash, Mike Love, Dick Cavett, Kristen Schaal, Vanessa Bayer, Jim Breuer, Jim Gaffigan, and Elvis Costello. Thank you for all of your support over the last ten years. Thank you to all of my guests who have made the show so special. I hope I can get at least another couple dozen shows out of this.

Back to School with Covid-19

In another visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick and I discussed why opening the schools would be a disaster, based on the fact that over 7,000 children have tested positive for Covid-19 in Tennessee alone. We talked about the long-term damage caused by the disease, including up to 38 percent of people who recover possibly suffering long-term neurological symptoms. Plus: Bill eats a Lego and talks about things excrementally increasing.
