Happy Birthday to Edgeland. On Edgeland's first birthday things are going to be a little bit different. This week Bill doesn't talk to a single person that is edge, or even formerly edge. To start the episode Bill talks with a variety of Portland stand up comedians about their thoughts on straightedge. Bill also announces the winner of the iTunes and Stitcher review contest, so congratulations to the winner you won't have a naked torso as winter approaches. Featured on this weeks episode is an interview with an original member, and founder of the Upright Citizens Brigade, Matt Besser. Matt grew up listening to punk and hardcore and that influence can be seen in all the projects he has been involved with and it is deep within the ethos of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theaters pricing formats and show structures. If you are a fan of comedy, punk, or hardcore this interview is very insightful. Thank you to everyone who has supported the show the past year. Hopefully year two brings you bigger and better things.
