Podcasts are a dime a dozen. For every good one, there’s 10 more shitty ones. Your friends at Dying Scene know that your time is valuable, so we’ve done you the invaluable service of finding the diamonds in the rough. Today we’ll be highlighting some of the punk rock podcasts you, the discerning podcast listener, should be listening to. Check ’em out below, and thank us later.

Jughead’s Basement

Jughead’s Basement is hosted by longtime Screeching Weasel guitarist John “Jughead” Pierson. His long-running series of “LoFi interviews with HiFi guests” sees him sitting down for candid conversations with some of the biggest names in punk. Some of his past guests include Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks, OFF!), Lookout! Records founder Larry Livermore, and former bandmate Dan Vapid. Being a veteran musician himself, Jughead is able to approach interviews from a unique angle that most hosts cannot.

The Dummy Room

If you worship the Ramones and have a vested interest in keeping your finger on the pulse of all things 90’s pop-punk, I invite you to check out the Dummy Room. The show provides a mix of discussion about classic records, interviews with the up-and-comers keeping Ramonescore alive, and new music premieres. I’ve discovered some of my favorite new bands listening to the Dummy Room these last few years (cough Giant Eagles cough). Listening to their annual awards show has become a New Year’s tradition.

Chris DeMakes a Podcast

Chris DeMakes is another veteran musician with a unique approach to the podcast game. The Less Than Jake co-frontman invites fellow musicians, punk and otherwise, on to talk at length about their most iconic songs. A prolific songwriter in his own right, DeMakes asks his guests in-depth questions about the structure, arrangement, and lyrical content of their songs. Some of the more notable episodes include Mark Hoppus diving into Blink-182‘s hit single “What’s My Age Again?”, Fat Mike breaking down NOFX classic “Linoleum”, and Stephen Egerton revisiting the Descendents‘ late 90’s comeback and “Everything Sux”.

Talking Records Podcast

The Talking Records Podcast is exactly what it sounds like: a guy talking about great records. Host Jed Dion is sometimes joined by the musicians involved in the creation of these records, and other times he just brings a friend on and they nerd out over a classic Green Day album. SoCal skate punk band Chaser‘s Dreamers was one of my favorite records of 2021, and listening to singer Mike LeDonne talk about it for an hour was enjoyable.

Turned Out a Punk

Hosted by Damian Abraham of Canadian punk band Fucked Up, Turned Out a Punk is a weekly podcast on which he interviews an eclectic variety of guests. Everyone from Tom DeLonge to Ramones tour manager Monte Melnick has joined Abraham to talk about the integral role punk rock has played in their lives. The show is very laid back and much more enjoyable than a rigid, Q&A style talkshow.

Suzi Moon

Suzi Moon has been an active member of the punk rock scene for well more than half her life, so you might expect that she would have used the free time provided by unplanned COVID-related shutdowns over the last couple years months to pause and catch her breath. You’d be sorely mistaken, however. After years of playing in a band with her sister (Civet, obviously) and taking filmmaking classes and starting a new band, Turbulent Hearts, and playing bass in a new band that flamed out rather unceremoniously in 2020 (L.A. Machina), Moon stepped out on her own for real. She put out an EP, “Call The Shots,” in 2021 under her own name with the help of Pirates Press Records. She self-produced and directed music videos for each of the three songs on “Call The Shots.” She put out another EP, “Animal” in April 2022, and now has her full-length solo debut, “Dumb & In Luv” due out soon.
