Keeper At The Gates (Season 6 Finale)

Somehow, someway, we've made it through yet another season of pretty much everyone's favorite music podcast. If you're confused as to what podcast I'm referencing, it's this one. I just figured I'd put that out there. If you're just tuning it, first of all, thank you, second of all, you're in for quite the wild ride. We've made it through a mountain of musical guests, a plethora of guest hosts, a global pandemic, the birth of a kid, a life-changing move across the country, and so much more....


IGP Crew Album Review: Pink Floyd - The Wall

First unleashed on the world in late 1979, Pink Floyd - The Wall is many things to many people. Shortly after the release of the album, the band toured with an unbelieveable stage show performing the album in it's entirety. After completion of the tour, the album was made into a motion picture by MGM in 1982. The album has been performed in it's entirety many times since, but today was focus solely on the studio record itself. Clocking in at 80 minutes with 26 songs in total, The Wall has...


IGP Presents: A Totally Epic Cover Battle - Smooth Criminal

Not many people have tried to cover the one and only, undisputed King of Pop Michael Jackson. Those that have usally find themselves trying to top something that is already perfect. A funny thing happened to the band Alien Ant Farm: they didn't set out to top Michael Jackson and they didn't even want to have their cover be the focal point of their career. Born from playing a few riffs at shows, the Alien Ant Farm cover of the Michael Jackson classic "Smooth Criminal" went on to be what...


Get In Losers, We're Discussing Road Trip Songs!

This week's episode finds Michelle & Russ sitting down with Frankie & Garrett of The EverTrending Story Podcast to discuss road trip songs! We're talking about our favorites, who gets to control the music and what NOT to play in the car. The Beatles, Harvey Danger, Ludacris, Bruno Mars, Buckcherry, Ozzy Osbourne, Beastie Boys, The Outfield, MIA, Cardi B, Falco and more all get the nod. Listen in as we talk through one of the more important discussions in the history of music sharing: who...


IGP Crew Album Review: City And Colour - Sometimes

The tripods back again, check it to wreck it, let's begin. Okay now that I've gotten that out of my system, let's get to it. It's just another mundane Monday so you know what that means. Another fan-freaking-tastic episode to brighten up your dreary work day. This week we're joined by Aaron from the "I HAD to say it" podcast. If you're just tuning in for the first time, first of all, thank you, but beyond that, we do a weekly rotation of brand-new and interesting guests that round out the...

IGP Presents: A Totally Epic Cover Battle - Land of Confusion

Our Totally Epic Cover Battle series, now a regular and beloved part of our program continues this week! We also welcome special guest Chris from the Dadnarok YouTube channel. Chris sits down with Russ & Michelle as they walk through a discussion about which version of the classic song "Land of Confusion" is better. Did Genesis get it right the first time in 1986 or did Disturbed improve what they set out to do in 2006? Feedback, Our Jammy Jams and a fun music discussion is all on display...

The IGP Crew Watches - Elvis: That's The Way It Is

It's Monday, and we're back with a brand spanking new episode for your ears to swallow. Another new episode means another special guest that we add to the roster. This week we welcome fellow podcaster, and OddPods Network brethren, Sam from The 500 Section Lounge Podcast. We don't do a whole lot of movie reviewing here, because well you know it's a music podcast and all, but sometimes we run across a film that is music related, and just too good not to talk about. That's exactly where this...


IGP Crew Album Review: Brand New - The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me

It's time for anotther IGP Crew Album Review and this time we've got two special treats. First up, it's Michelle's turn to join the crew and it's her turn to pick the album for review. On top of that, we have long time listener and fellow podcaster Seth joining us from Queer Defense Squad while we break this album down. Under discussion this week is The Devil And God Are Raginig Inside Me from the band Brand New. The album was released in late 2006 as a follow up to their massively...


Pretty Weird, Isn't It Al?

Hopefully, ya'll are getting used to the new format. If not, too bad! Just kidding, but seriously though we hope you're picking up what we're laying down. This week we caught up with John from The Beer'd Al Podcast, to talk about none other than Weird Al, who would have guessed? There is about a 99% chance that you've at least heard the name "Weird Al", and thanks to MTV more like a 100% chance that you've heard at least one of his songs, and seen at least one of his brilliant music videos....


IGP Presents: A Totally Epic Cover Battle - Lady Marmalade

We're back on track but certainly not back to "normal"! This week, we're up to our old shenanigans as we bring back our Totally Epic Cover Battle. This series has already featured some iconic originals going head to head with extremely popular covers. This week is no different. The sheer power and groove of LaBelle goes head to head with the modern take from Christina, Pink, Lil Kim, Mya and Missy Elliot. That's right, it's the battle of Lady Marmalade. Listen to our debate then decide for...


All The News That's Fit To Print - An IGP Update

This week's update has so much going on! We called in a pinch hitter to assist with the first half of the episode, then in the second half we have an update for you. We may even be over sharing here, but the three of us care deeply about what we do every week, so we wanted to give you the best and most up to date news possible. Long time listeners will be familiar with some of what we share. Newer listers may learn a few things. We think everyone will at least have something to take...


The Age Old Rockle Debacle

This argument seems to be as old as time (or at least as old as "Rock" music), and well if you're as old as time, maybe it's your fault that we're having to debate this, to begin with. Hell, we can't even agree as a species as to where Rock 'N' Roll as a whole began. That right there should tell you something. With that being said, it seems like every couple of years when one of our beloved Rock legends plays his final note, we have a bunch of people shaking their fists at the sky claiming...


IGP Crew Album Review: Amigo The Devil - Everything Is Fine

We've come around once again to one of our favorite segments of the podcast, where we let you the listener choose an album, any album, and then we take a crack at listening, reviewing, and then telling you all what we think of it as a whole. This week we were tasked with taking on not only an album that we had never heard before but also an artist that we had never heard of. A master of "Murderfolk" (which we had also not heard of until taking a stab at this album), a crooner from the dark...


IGP Presents: A Totally Epic Cover Battle - Hurt

It's not often that you come across a song that seemingly transcends time and space when performed by two different artists. It's even more interesting when those two artists are on the complete opposite ends of the musical spectrum. You might be wondering what the hell I am even talking about, and before you swerve off the road in a podcast rage, let me explain. In 1994 Trent Reznor and his band Nine Inch Nails would release The Downward Spiral (also known to NIN fans as Halo 8). The final...


Truth Runs Marathons - The Michael Jackson Special

**SPECIAL EPISODE ALERT** This episode is a special solo effort from Russ being released on June13th for a very specifc reason. All information and messaging within this episode is approved and endorsed by Kyle & Michelle, but the topic is sensitive enough to where we thought it was best to be handled as a solo, informational piece. Over the course of this episode, we hope you learn something new regarding the news stories that reguarly surround Michael Jackson. We also hope that you take...


Suns Out Buns Out

Well now that spring has sprung and we've moved on to 85-degree temps with 70% humidity, things are starting to stick to one another, so we thought it would be fitting to talk about our favorite summer songs that go along with our favorite summer activities. Summer is not only a season but also a mental state. It could be 40 degrees and rainy but when you throw on that specific song, you're immediately transported to a sunny beach or maybe a backyard barbecue. I know for me, sometimes...


IGP Crew Album Review: INXS - Kick

Season 6 is rolling and we're back with another one of our famous or well if you're Michelle, "infamous" album reviews. This week Russ decided to throw a hail mary and pick something he thought for sure everyone would love. Hailing from Australia is a little band that you might have heard about at some point in your music listening career. Shoving their way into the music industry all the way back in 1977. Initially known for their new wave/pop style, the band later developed a harder pub...


IGP Presents: A Totally Epic Cover Battle - Sympathy For The Devil

As we continue to Humpty Dance our way into season 6, your favorite musical tripod has decided to do something a little different and add a new themed episode into the rotation of episodes you've grown to know and love. Covers, covers, covers, and we're not talking karaoke. You love em', you hate em', and so do we. It seems like covers go back as far as your favorite songs do. Artists have been covering one another's work since the very beginning, and like most things in life, some do it...


Battle Of The Bulge: 1984 vs 1991

DISCLAIMER: Before diving headfirst into this episode, it is recommended that you go back and listen to the episodes that we dedicated solely to 1984 and 1991. But hey, if you want to be confused, and listen to this episode first, by all means, you do you. After reading the title of this episode, you might be thinking "hey I thought this was a music podcast", and you are correct, it most certainly is. Truth be told music in the mid-80s/early 90s was on fire, and there is no denying that....


IGP Crew Album Review: The Weeknd - Kiss Land

AND WE'RE BACK! Man, that seemed like the longest between-season break ever, but lucky for you, we're back and better than ever. This season (season 6 a.k.a season 3 or 4 if you ask Michelle) is going to be another killer ride. We're starting this one off strong with our critically acclaimed album review series that you've all mostly grown to love. This time it's Kyle who went the extra mile and plugged us in with something that many of you might not have tuned into before hearing this. We...
