Hey, I Love Your Work. (Episode 93)

Did you know Thomas can dunk? This is the episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast where I try and convince him to rename his basketball team "Defend Pop-Dunk." This week we also talk about if listeners will accept the "new" Blink-182, what the "hiatus" means for The Gaslight Anthem, do we think it's ok for record labels to exist only to re-press albums, something about Brand New, the Vinylify service, and Bill Simmons' move to HBO and its impact on the internet/media world. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.
