Joe welcomes Tobe Bean of Street Dogs to the show for a conversation about music and the ridiculous realities of a rock-n-roll lifestyle. Tobe goes into his roots in music, tips for touring in Australia, and the thrills of being in one of Boston’s bringin’-it-est bands.
Then Grant Cotter joins the set to talk about his dui arrest, how he got his start in comedy, and assaulting an opossum for his mother. It is a really fun conversation that had us rolling. Enjoy!
