    Lindsey Weber (@lindseyweber - Who? Weekly podcast) blows up the very premise of the show by bringing a song from the unpunchable playlist to punch up. ABSOLUTELY. Also Miel was thinking of Mary Lou Retton playing Tiny Tim in the movie within the movie Scrooged, a common mistake that most people have made. UNPUNCHABLE JAMS: "The Whole of the Moon" by The Waterboys (Covered by Fiona Apple), and "All Through the Night" by Cyndi Lauper.

    AND WE'RE BACK BABY WITH A NEW EPISODE, MMM, DROP! Too-sweet-to-be-sour-too-nice-to-be-mean Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman - Desus & Mero, Last Week Tonight) brings some serious KNOWLEDGE to discuss Intergalactic by the Beastie Boys! Hope you enjoy, but just FYI if you try to knock me you'll get mocked. Seriously. So please don't. Please. I have a family.

    Demi's LAST EPISODE and WOW what a one to go out on! TWO extremely special guests, legitimate artist Open Mike Eagle (@Mike_Eagle - The New Negroes) & mashup king himself Neil Cicierega (@neilcic - Mouth Moods) join us onstage at XOXO fest for the unpacking of Ray Parker Jr. "Ghostbusters" you've all been waiting for. Busting FEELS GOOD !!!! I'm crying.

  • Punch Up The Jam

    SUBLIME. IAN KARMEL. DEMI’S PENULTIMATE SHOW! All live from Bumbershoot. Hot takes galore. An audience full of Dixie chicks. Interpretive dance that you cannot see but you certainly can feel.

  • Punch Up The Jam

    THE TWO PART FEVER DREAM SERIES continues with Hotel California and Miel's Dad Jim! In case you missed last week, listen to that first! Or if you hate information, just listen to this one!!!!! It's your life!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Punch Up The Jam

    Eagles AND the return of Miel's Dad Jim? A TWO part episode of a very much one episode podcast?! No DEMI!? Recorded...on the ISLAND????? WHAT is HAPPENING?! A lot, explained in episode but in a nutshell: there's a two-week gap between end of frontloaded studio episodes and the last two live episodes together. Miel will be continuing the podcast (!!!) and there will be tweaks to the show after Demi's departure, not reflected in this interim two-parter. So if you like an informative episode, the warm smell of colitas, and the entire history of EAGLES (no the???) straight from a former industry hot shot, enjoy!

  • Punch Up The Jam

    Brandy and Monica, Miel and Demi, Naomi Ekperigin And Andy Beckerman (Couples Therapy podcast) OH MY!!!! The whole damn team assembles to dissect the 90's R&B classic two-chord love triangle anthem, "The Boy Is Mine". I LOVE YOU, THE GOOOOOOOD WIIIIIIIIIFEEEE (this joke will make sense once you listen).

  • Punch Up The Jam

    WE’RE OFF THE DEEP END, WATCH AS WE DIVE IN to discuss Shallow with (@SeanClements - Hollywood Handbook podcast). It’s the song from A Star is Born where Lady Gaga wails and Bradley Cooper also does something. Deep end and shallows??? Help.

  • Punch Up The Jam

    Watch out Gavin Degraw, Carl Tart (@dammitcarl - Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Flagrant Ones podcast) and the punch babies are on the CASE, asking questions like how did an existential anthem become the One Tree Hill theme song? We don't answer any of these questions but I can tell you the punch up is the strangest in show history and no I'm not sorry !!! xoxo Miel

  • Punch Up The Jam

    TWO princes?! MORE LIKE FOUR BABY! Hold onto your (pointy woolen) hats so your dad doesn't eat them! Jon Gabrus (@gabrus - High & Mighty, Raised by TV podcasts) AND Alice Wetterlund (@alicewetterlund - Treks and the City podcast) help make sense of the Spin Doctor's hackey sack anthem "Two Princes" on this very special double guest LIVE spectacular! It's as chaotic as this song! Di bi bi bip, di bi bi bi di Bi di-di-le-di ba da ba da ba da ba Da ba da ba da ba da ba
