Season 2 - Episode 4 - Don't Tweet Me

This is a hot one! And by that I mean it was very hot in Dan's apartment when he recorded this. But nothing makes for good comedy ramblings like sweating in your kitchen. So fun! Also, there's lots of good music. Dan discusses his exciting weekend at the Pitchfork Music Festival and decides maybe he's not too old for festivals. Other topics include: liking bands after they break up, breaking the sophomore slump, and when exactly Dan plans on retiring. If you enjoy any of these bands, please support them with money!
