Ladies and Gentlemen, it is indeed our pleasure to have the amazingly talented Dave Holmes in the Coop this week. In fact, our discussion with him was so fantastic, we had to split it into two podcasts! Dave was gracious enough to take time from his busy schedule of DJing for Sirius Radio, writing for Esquire, making several podcasts himself and just being an all around great person to visit with us for over 2 hours. Our conversation covers a lot of his life and career, along with so many Dudes stories including catheters! So enjoy part one of our conversation and look for part two in the next few days. And Happy Halloween!

Joey is still at an age appropriate for rebelling, but for Kurt, those days are long passed. Still, both enjoy the punk rock ethos of Green Day who turns ripe old age of 23 as a band. The release of their latest studio album, Revolution Radio proves they can still rock as they have in the past, but they continue to evolve as well. From a career that started with a riot (in Boston) to now where Billy Joe is starring in a comedy film, 'Ordinary World', they've been hard to pin down. Listen in as we discuss the idea of Punk, selling out, growing up and how Green Day has managed to do it all.
The biggest rock stars in history announced that they would be playing a three-day festival together in Indio, California about 5 months ago. The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, The Who and Roger Waters all playing the same stage in one epic weekend! What idiot would miss the opportunity to knock off a Rock God Bucket list in one fell swoop? Kurt Long. I am that idiot. But luckily for me, my less idiotic podcast partner Joey Bragg jumped in with both feet and came back still tingly days after the event. Listen in as Joey recounts what he calls a "Life-changing" event. Sure, my fellow Gen Xers may cynically scoff at this claim, but Joey makes a pretty convincing argument as to why Desert Trip, aka "Old"-Chella was something for the ages. (Specifically Boomers and Millennials)

Our first double guest show turns out to be one of our best yet, proving the point that More is definitely the Merrier. We asked friend & fantastic singer/songwriter Michelle Lewis & her husband Dan Petty to come by and experience the show live so they could get a good feel for the Dudes & write a theme song for us. What happened instead was one of the most amazing, natural, funny and passionate conversations we've ever had. Lots of stuff to enjoy here. We talk Music (Old & New), doubting your parent skills & Michelle's fight with the Dept. Of Justice! And They are going to help us with a theme song to boot! You are going to love this one!
Download past shows, Review and tell your friends to do the same! Thanks for listening and we'd love to hear from you!

There are plenty of differences between Gen X & Millennials, but the love of Football seems to be a tie that binds. Joey & Kurt dig deep on the sport of football, privileged players, huge salaries, bigger hits, head trauma, racist team names and a possible future of "Flag Football", and more. If you love or hate the game you'll find something to relate to as the boys pick the game apart from all sides. What is America's obsession? Why do we glorify these gladiators? Should we love it as much as we do? Have a listen and find out. Thanks and Enjoy!
Never has a podcast had more fun analyzing the likes and differences of Millennials and Generation X. Comedians Kurt Long and Joey Bragg build bridges between generations using laughter, wit, understanding and nonsense. Joey's youthful exuberance, humor and determination are a great contrast to the more experienced Kurt's cautious skepticism and sarcasm. Together they dissect topics of the day from the perspectives of two entertainment industry professionals separated by 20+ years while providing plenty of laughs and insight. Neither claim to be experts or take themselves too seriously, so their conversations are always hilarious, cutting, and unique.
