They said Edgeland would break edge as soon as it hit episode 21, but it didn't happen. Edgeland is back this week and it is still the most straightedge podcast on the internet. This time around Bill begrudgingly delves back into the X files to hopefully shed light onto another straightedge mystery. In the interview portion of the show Bill talks with Matt Pike (twitterinstagramtumblr) of Some Kind of Hate and the man behind The Kenmore Agency. Matt had a big hand in putting together this past weekends Musink festival in Orange County and he talks about how he got started in hardcore, how life has changed as a father, and the benefits of living in California. In the non edge column Bill talks with a real legend of hardcore, Sam Siegler. Sam talks about playing in New York hardcore bands like Side by Side, Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Judge and Project X starting at the tender age of 12 years old, planning tours around school breaks, and about the unique experiences he has had thanks to music. Like playing Mtv's spring break and some studio work for Limp Bizkit. A fun episode this week that is enjoyable for the entire family, if your entire family likes hardcore.

In the non edge column Bill talks with Vin Gerard (twitter) about the Wilkes-Barre music scene, why wrestling with a mask is way more difficult than it seems, and if there is a term for people that are not straightedge.
