Sometimes you just record a podcast episode out of pure indie-rock geekery. Founding editors Rob, Marisa, and Jesse are nuts for the U.K. indie rock act Los Campesinos! so on the occasion of their new album Sick Scenes and their recent North American tour, we got together, along with relative newbie Sara, saw their show in Brooklyn, and had a wide-ranging conversation about the band, our favorite songs, our baseless speculation about their personal lives, and if indie rock circa 2008 really was so special. Indie rock fangirls and fanboys everywhere may relate.

We can all agree that 2016 was a garbage year, but did any albums, songs, or musicians manage to save it for us? Rob, Sara, Marisa, and Jesse got together to figure out whether Beyonce, Radiohead, or the return of A Tribe Called Quest, among others, could salvage 2016 via songs.

Opinions that fly in the face of widespread cultural and critical consensus: everyone's got 'em, and your friends at SportsAlcohol.com are here to indulge them. Rob, Sara, Marisa, and Jesse got together to talk about which substitutions they'd make in the pop music canons -- which albums they think are secretly inferior to other, less acclaimed albums by the same artist. We talk about Bruce Springsteen, the Beatles, U2, Sleater-Kinney, the Stone Roses, Radiohead and other sacred cows of rock.
