#18 - Norman Brannon (Texas is the Reason)
Washed Up Emo
On the latest episode, I chat with Norman Brannon from Texas is the Reason. Fresh off the Revelation 25 shows, we discuss the NYC hardcore scene, shows with Mineral and Christie Front Drive and how a Warzone tattoo connected bands before the days of cell phones. We also looked to Norman's future endeavors and the band into 2013.Support the show
#34 - Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional)
Washed Up Emo
When you have a musical career as long as Chris Carrabba, there's bound to be some reflection. I sat down with Chris face to face in New York City to discuss his musical life. This was largely unedited with many pauses and air left between question and answer. We dive into his upbringing, the Florida scene and Fiddler Records, the mid 2000s emo boom and what he wants most from his music. An absolutely beautiful soul that’s worthy of his own revival.

#28 - Mike Kinsella (Cap'n Jazz, American Football, Owen)
Washed Up Emo
Recently, I got together with Mike Kinsella for the podcast who in these circles needs no introduction. Alas, for those unaware, he has been a part of some of the most revered bands in the scene from the last 90s through today. His work with Cap'n Jazz, American Football, Owls, Owen and Their / They're / There and Joan of Arc has influenced countless individuals and bands to pursue music. We talk about his upbringing, using maps while touring Europe, an upcoming American Football release, renaming "Never Meant" so it's funnier when someone yells it out at an Owen show and of course, the future. One thing is for sure, there is plenty of music left in Mr. Kinsella. Support the show
#105 - Chris Leo (Native Nod, The Van Pelt)
Washed Up Emo
Today we have Chris Leo. He was in Native Nod, a band referenced often as an originator of screamo. Then he went on to form The Van Pelt that is well loved and should be mentioned a lot more than they are when you talk about the history of emo. The Van Pelt have some reunion shows coming up and it was high time to have Chris on to chat. I even went to New Jersey for this! Support the show
#89 - Rainer Maria
Washed Up Emo
You’re in for a treat for episode 89! Caithlin, Kaia and William from Rainer Maria joined me in Brooklyn for a chat about what else, the past, then we touched on their upcoming shows for the end of this year and in between, lots of laughs. Support the show
#20 - Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids)
Washed Up Emo
It was an absolute honor to have Mr. Matt Pryor from The Get Up Kids be a part of the podcast. I just noticed after listening back to this episode that the only person left to interview from my opening musical montage is Jeremy Enigk. What a trip it's been. Matt was great to chat with and even had to scold his kids who you can hear at times during the interview. We dove into the first time Matt sang live in front of someone, Kansas City, Boy's Life, ripping off "Static Prevails" and why bands do 10 year anniversaries. Matt also mentioned his opinion on the word "emo" and throughout the podcast you can hear his voice ring with truth that also transcends to the bands he was in and his way of life. And you have to hear what song The Get Up Kids never have to practice that you love. Finally, download his recently launched podcast "Nothing To Write Home About" which is a great listen and unique insight into the scene.Support the show
#8 - Eric Richter (Christie Front Drive)
Washed Up Emo
Eric Richter from Christie Front Drive joins Tom Mullen and Ray Harkins at the Washed Up Emo Podcast to discuss the history and future of arguably one of the most influential bands and person from this era. It was truly an honor to speak to Eric and hear his thoughts and ideals. I hope you enjoy. Support the show

Blair Shehan from Knapsack and The Jealous Sound joins Tom Mullen and guest host, journalist Jonah Bayer, for a chat about his life as a musician and the new album from The Jealous Sound entitled "A Gentle Reminder" out January 31st!Support the show
#15 - Chris Simpson (Mineral, The Gloria Record, Zookeeper)
Washed Up Emo
The first day I started this podcast, a goal was to have Chris Simpson on. Through a great network of friends, it went down earlier this month and I couldn't have been happier. We had a few technical difficulties but we got to catch up on a bunch of things including the new crop of labels like Count Your Lucky Stars, The Gloria Record possibly reuniting and the amount of unreleased music that could see the light of day.Case in point, Chris has sent exclusively three unreleased/unheard songs. One entitled "Conclusions" is featured within the podcast. I will release the other two soon.Thanks for listening and please send back any and all feed back on Twitter to (@washedupemo) or Facebook ( Support the show
