Garbageman Cole Johnston (@KeyboardCole) returns for a make-em-up episode of the hit morning radio show Jacob and The Garbageman. Full disclosure - this episode is dumb. I am not great at improv and we make up lots of stuff on the fly. We had a blast doing it. There are aliens, burned down chain restaurants, fascinating zookeepers, callers and strange products galore in this episode set in a weird, non-existant town. This one is as silly as they get and I hope it gives you the giggles in more than a few places.

Returning champion guest Cole Johnston (@KeyboardCole) is back and we officially announce his new position as the official replacement Based on Nothing cohost! This show just isn’t as good with one host and it’s time to fix it.

Cole and I open up some new and old segments such as Where’s The Brand New Album?, In The Loop, Great Stories, Bedtime Stories, and Tired of Weezer. We talk about adult playgrounds, institute a failed no cursing policy, Fantastic Four, Saved By The Bell, Star Wars lullabies, a comedy show we went to, we take a call from a friend of the show and much more.

Finally, Cole dramatically quits his new position as the official replacement Based on Nothing cohost and gets permanently banned from the show. It’s a real roller coaster of an episode.

Episode #50 is next! Thanks for listening!

In this very special episode of the Based on Nothing podcast I am joined in studio by repeat guest and friend of the show Kelsey Degnan. Near the end of the episode I realized that I have been doing this podcast for over a year and it becomes a joyous and celebratory affair.

The episode begins with a prayer and a state of the podcast address. We take LIVE calls from Karl Germanovich from the band Howlish, New York based comedian Alisha Delp, (who is coming to us live from a life or death battle with a mosquito) Michael Morrison, (who has scorching hot takes on Mad Men and Taylor Swift) and Rob Moden (host of the Orphan Black Clone Cast on the Nerdist network!)

Kelsey and I discuss Brand New and how she recently confronted part of the band Seether over their blatant rip off of the Brand New song ‘Daisy’, a lost episode of the Based on Nothing spinoff Where’s The Brand New Album? podcast, summer music like Hop Along and their wonderful new record, American Football, Yuck, Mikal Cronin, Rilo Kiley, Colleen Green, summer vacations, Disney World wishes and curses, Podcastaway the movie, the great Dancing Epidemic of 1518 which is my favorite thing to ever be talked about on this podcast, and finally we go through the new Brand New news. Sorry for the little popping sounds, but also fuck it.

Thank you to everyone who has been on or listened to this podcast over the past year. New episodes coming all through June/all summer/until the end of time.

The podcast no one asked for is back to ask the question that haunts us more than any other - Where is Brand New's brand new album? It seems closer than ever with the band paying new material live, releasing their old demos on cassette and sending out The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me lyric books almost nine years after the fact. Brand New are giving their fans more intrigue than ever lately and it seems like something is right around the corner.
