Get ready for an epic NFL showdown this weekend by relaxing with an episode of Edgeland podcast. This week on the show Bill plays two recent stand up comedy sets. One that guys relatively well, and one that goes poorly. Both are humorous in their own regard. In the interview section of the show Bill talks With Tim McMahon of Mouthpiece and the blog Double Cross. Tim talks about the early influence of Thrasher magazine, having friends introduce you to so many new things, and the aesthetic appeal of hardcore. In the non edge column Bill talks with Caleb Scofield of Cave In and Old Man Gloom about growing up in suburban New Hampshire, Crossbearer, and how personal the straight edge is. This episode as always is brought to you by the fine folks over at The Hard Times.

Has it really been 64 episodes already? Where does the time go anyway? This week on Edgeland the X-files returns as Bill jumps into another mystery of the edge. In the interview portion of the show it is all Indecision all the time. In the edge column Bill talks with original Indecision vocalist Tom Sheehan about growing up in Brooklyn, street justice in Vancouver, and alcohol versus pot. In the non edge column Bill talks with Justin Brannan the man on the guitar for Indecision. Justin talks about the excitement of meeting other like minded hardcore kids, New York battle of the band legends, and how easy it is to get stuck in New York. If you are in the New York area be sure to check out the screening of the new Indecision documentary happening at St. Vitus Bar.

The weekend is knocking, why don't you go let it in? Before all that happens at least you have a new episode of Edgeland to chase away the blues. Today on the show Bill tells a story of mischief and friendship, but mainly it's a story about bad decisions. In the interview portion of the show Bill talks with Jesse Barnett of Stick To Your Guns and Trade Wind about OC edge, dropping out of high school, and the hardcore mentality that prevails these days. In the non edge column Bill talks with Damien Moyal of Culture, Morning Again, As Friends Rust, and so many more about his days as a teenager, the Florida hardcore sound, and what draws people into hardcore in general. A solid episode that will start off your weekend right.

In the non edge column Bill talks with Jason Hamacher of Frodus, Battery, and the production company Lost Origins about growing up in Florida, being the son of a preacher, and how he got his start playing in his various bands.
