HAPPY 20th SKA BREWING!! A few weeks back I traveled to Durango, Colorado for the best damned beer festival in the United States, the Ska Brewing 20th Anniversary Party & Brewers Invitational! I decided to commemorate the experience by interviewing Mad Caddies & Reel Big Fish at the Festival!

Since we were at a beer festival, drinking BEER, you’ll never guess what we talked about! BEER! First beers, favorite beers, making beers and more and more sudsy talk!

These interviews were also videoed and posted to YouTube so that you can watch Damian make an ass out of himself instead of just listening! You can find the Mad Caddies interview at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XuPhncFAdU

Today we bring you what will be the start of some new programming here at the Mostly Harmless Pod. We love comic books. We love Movies. We looooove Music! Why not combine our loves and showcase them to the world! So today we bring you an episode that combines our love of Punk/ska with Comics?!?!

Our first interview in today’s episode is with YALE STEWART, world famous creator of GIFTED and of the critically acclaimed, award winning JL8! JL8 is of course the web comic that re-imagines The Justice League (Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Ect…) as eight year old kids in Day care!

We talk about Yale’s early art years and not only how he came to find comic books, but how he came to create them!

We then switch focus to the band that would fit right at home in a re-imagining of a BOND FILM, if filmed in 1950’s southern California. I’m of course talking about THE ATOM AGE. A 1950’s esque rock n roll band meets Rocket from The Crypt meets Voodoo Glow Skulls!

We talk about how the band came to form, how they found their sound, how THE QUEERS paved the way and why they play the music they play!

All this and MORE as this episode of Mostly Harmless With Dammit Damian breaks our all time downloads record!!!
