The Metal Episode ft. Chris

Matt enjoys some metal, but on a very surface level. Metal fans are intense and passionate about the genre and he wanted to learn more about the history of, and why people love it so much. In this episode, Chris takes Matt through the history of all the metal sub genres and tells some legendary lore from the black metal history books.

Ticketmaster Tell-All

Matt sits down with anonymous guessed called "Alex" to discuss the history of online ticketing, specifically via Ticketmaster. "Alex" worked there for five years, so he certainly has a lot to say. In this episode, we take a behind the scenes look at Ticketmaster, learning the truth about where your money really goes for "convenience fees", how the secondary ticket market came to be, and so much more.

Pearl Jam Discography Discussion (Part 1) w/ Jake Lloyd

In the inagural episode of Too Many Records, Matt (a new, but devoted adoptee to the Jamily) and Jake (a long time superfan) dissect Pearl Jam's discography and share their thoughts on albums, songs, and the era they came out in. Matt also shares his knowledge about the vinyl releases for each album. Stupidly thinking they could get through the full discography in one podcast, they only were able to conquer the first few LPs, so look forward to part 2!
