Spencer Robinson has lived. An LA-native, early exposure to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones sparked an interest in music and he eventually found himself diving head first into LA's Garage Scene. Enter his first touring gig: Bassist for Lords of Altamont. During Spencer's time with the band a heavy push in Europe put the band on festivals with the Who, X, the Pixies and they became touring buddies with the Cramps. Quite a resume! Amidst all of this, Spencer got into counting cards, and started playing cards at casinos all over the country in between tours. Ron and Spencer discuss the art of counting cards, touring, music, and all of Spencer's experiences that have paved the road for the solo-music he is making now.

Also in this episode: Ron discusses Trump and Obama's farewell and U2, it's connected.

Ron talks about the importance of this date, 12/8, in rock history. It is the day John Lennon was murdered and Jim Morrison's birthday. A bitter-sweet day meant to observe.

Today's guest is Aaron Hamblin from the organization Election Science. They are trying to change the way we go about elections in the US and their message is very timely considering recent events. From their website:
Our elections are awful. A recent Princeton study (link is external) declared the US an oligarchy, meaning the people at large didn't actually influence policy, even though they're voting.

Why? Our voting is ineffectual.

The US uses winner-take-all with a voting method called plurality voting where you can only choose one candidate. This voting method we normally don't think about was voted the worst there is (link is external) by a group of experts from Voting Powers and Procedures out of The London School of Economics and Political Science.

The Center for Election Science is dedicated to helping the world use smarter election systems. We are a nationally-based, nonpartisan, 501(c)3 nonprofit comprised of voting system experts and activists. We incorporated in California in 2011.

We are dedicated to helping the world make smarter collective decisions, largely through better voting methods. Our flagship reform is approval voting.

Jim Earl is a writer and, these days, a content generator. After starting in comedy in San Francisco where he rubbed elbows with the likes of Robin Williams and other comedy legends of the mid-80s, Jim relocated to New York City where he eventually found himself on the writing staff of a then-fairly new show, the Daily Show.

For 2 years he worked for host Craig Kilborn before Jon Stewart took over. Jim Earl talks of the transition and working for Jon Stewart. His accounts are contrary and brutally honest. Get a peak under the hood of one of the most successful Comedy News programs.

Svetlanas are an Italian punk band that tours the world relentlessly. Their front-woman, Olga, was banned from Russia. We talk about why (hint: it has something to do with that whole no free speech thing a la Pussy Riot). This interview was conducted in downtown Los Angeles after their show outside of the venue. At one point it is broken up by a police officer. Hear Ron negotiate with law enforcement!

More about the band:
The most dangerous band in the world.
-Dying Scene

I swear to God their approach to music is still gross and strong like a Vodka shot
-Malcom McLaren

Ron Placone and Ben discuss the band's newest EP, Parts of a Flower, Morrissey and the Smiths, in particular Johnny Marr's guitar playing and how Morrissey signs off on his e-mails (aren't ya curious?), the band's stint in London, punk rock in Orange County, having television writers as parents, discovering music and an awkward occurrence with Tim Armstrong, Ben and his wife. Fun conversation, much geeking out about music is had. Dear Boy is a fantastic Brit-pop inspired outfit you'd best do yourself a favor and check out!

"Jonathan Shaw is the Great Nightmare Anti-Hero of the New Age." --Iggy Pop

Jonathan Shaw is a writer and a tattoo artist. He is arguably the most famous tattoo artist in the world, he is without a doubt the first tattoo artist to do late night television. Why? You ask. Maybe because he tattooed countless celebrities including Johnny Depp who became a friend and fan. Or maybe it's because he ran away from home at a young age and joined the LA scene in the 60s and spent time at the Manson Family ranch (before the murders). Or maybe it's because he used to hang out with Led Zeppelin and was friends with Jim Morrison. Maybe it's because when he started doing tattoos he was in Brazil and made his own equipment. Basically, the dude's lived, and fortunately for us all he started writing. His latest effort, Scab Vendor, which will be released in 2017, chronicles all of these items and more. We discuss the book, his life and work, publishing and tons more.

Eric Schwartz is a musical satirist. He tours the US and Europe bringing his music to every audience he can find. He’s been playing music and comedy venues nationally for fifteen years (The Improv, The Bluebird, The Comedy Store, The Bottom Line…). He has composed for and performed in various Satiristas shows spearheaded by Paul Provenza, as well as “The Bad Boys Of Comedy” with Bobby Slayton, Jim Norton et. al. His songs have been sung by Ronny Cox, Holly Near and Van Dyke Parks. Schwartz is possibly the only artist in the history of the world to get raves from Gloria Steinem and Hustler Magazine, Eric’s songs go from the political to the profane, sometimes both (see the International Songwriting Competition’s best comedy song of the year, “Clinton Got A Blowjob”.) Eric’s latest CD release The Aristocrat, which Paul Zollo (Songwriters on Songwriting) calls “A Comic Treasure” and The U.K.’s Rock’n’Reel magazine calls “beautifully produced and perfectly executed,” contains “There’s A Picture…”, currently in rotation on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show. Schwartz has also garnered radio play on stations as diverse as Howard Stern’s 100, Raw Dog Radio, The Ed Schultz Show and All Things Considered. Schwartz’ latest release is “The Better Man”, which Brian Keathley of KALX Berkeley calls “by far his best work yet. A great collection of tunes with humor, and social commentary – some of which is damn profound. Be listening for it this week and beyond on my radio shows!” Ron and Eric discuss his roots in Boston, the folk scene in New York City, touring, romance, and Eric performs his new song, "Don't Vote," a topical must-hear! Enjoy!

Also, Ron and Carmen Morales discuss Carmen finally getting into Game of Thrones.
