Pop Culture Affidavit Episode 19 — August and Everything After

Episode 19 CoverThis time around, I have yet another guest on the show and it’s an awesome special guest, my friend chelle who spends about 90 minutes with me talking about the 1993 Counting Crows debut album, “August and Everything After.” We talk about the album’s history and go through it song by song and bring up everything that we like about the album and the band, which has been around for 20 years now.

You can get the episode via iTunes or download it here:  Pop Culture Affidavit episode 19.

After the jump, a few extras … things that were mentioned in the podcast.
