Episode 28: Santa Delivers A Jake Ryan Episode.

The physics behind St. Nick delivering presents to every boy and girl dictate that Santa would burst into flames. So, clearly, that calls Santa’s existence into serious doubt. I mean, it’s probably bullshit, right? But, then, he delivers the first Jake Ryan episode in like 9 months via the internet, and it’s a gift for the entire world, distributed on Christmas Eve. It’s plausible that this is a Christmas miracle. Suddenly, you’re like “Wait… he might just exist.” Right?

The response to the last episode was so fantastic that I couldn’t wait to get another one out. Odd how much of this came from posts in my Facebook feed – but, listen, there are no rules on the road to discovery. No matter how uncool the path is, as long as the destination is cool, it was valid. Anyway, you should leave us a review on Apple podcast. -Tyler

Episode 21 – The End of a Decade

There’s no commentary on this episode, so you’ll just have to imagine Tyler at the wheel, Jake riding shotgun, and Lenny in the back, traveling up to the casino town of Central City, Colorado, listening to this playlist that we all contributed to. It begins with Northside’s “A Change Is On Its Way”, as both a tribute to their recently passed guitarist Tim Walsh and also for the lines “It tastes like heaven and it feels so nice / to roll that 7 on the lucky dice.” This was a craps trip after all – and one that was quite successful. Enjoy this episode of The Casual Sound – one that ends the decade. We’ll see you in 2020… I’m sure of it.
