These Things Matter Podcast - Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
  • These Things Matter Podcast - Joe Kwaczala
  • These Things Matter Podcast - Bob and Bruce

Our new pal comedian Joe Kwaczala has one of the more interesting obsessions we’ve run across. No, he’s not an architectural nerd obsessed with a certain building in Cleveland, Joe is obsessed with the list of people in, possibly in, and about to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Who’s eligible? Who’s deserving? Who’s snubbed? Who gets to perform? Who gets left out? Who’s wearing the most leather at 60-something years-old? These are the questions Joe wants to know! Join us as we talk all things RnR legendary!

And go see Joe when he comes to your town or hosting The Wheel Show in L.A.!

“Here are just a few of the key ingredients: dynamite, pole vaulting, laughing gas, choppers – can you see how incredible this is going to be? – hang gliding, come on!”

“I saved Latin. What did you ever do?”

“You heard me, Coltrane.”

“I’m going to find it and I’m going to destroy it. I don’t know how yet, maybe dynamite.”

“Maybe we could express ourselves more fully when we say it without words.”

“Are you cussing with me?”

“I love you, but you don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that’s what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant… oh, fuck it.”

Need we say more?

Except to say our guest, Adam Maid, is a sketch comedian and stand-up of the highest order and you should go see him whenever he is in your general vicinity, especially when he’s performing in Bridge & Tunnel, his sketch comedy group which includes friends of the show Jason Gore and Kristen Bartlett!

Listen in like the TV film crew you are!
