The Brews has boiled over, and Bruce has found himself in a hot mess: Sean and Matt break down a complicated February for the Boss. Has our venerated Jersey boy become just another Madison Avenue shill? Or perhaps a tabloid taboo? Tune in to find out!
There's a new president in the White House, and expert political strategist Matt M. joins the show to contextualize Bruce's inaugural appearance and forecast the next four years.
Sean and Matt debut a new Christmas song, brought to you from quarantine with the help of an old friend, Andy (listen to more of his music at https://soundcloud.com/user-77857091). Here's to a new and better year, Springheads!
A hot piece of Brews involving a couple Jersey boys hits the airwaves just as Mike Hartwell saddles into Virtual Bah Shteve Studios, bringing with him some expert Letter to You analysis. Settle in and shred some time confetti, Springheads!
Sean and Matt debut a new song just in time for the election. After catching up on Halloween, they dissect Bruce's new album Letter to You.
Cinephile and friend Matt M. returns after a quarantine viewing of 2019's Blinded by the Light to share his hot take on the film. Later, the boys have a debate about The Prestige and explore the world of bespoke automotive furniture.
An emergency meeting in Virtual Bah Shteve Studios is convened after a piece of Brews dropped that's simply too big to contain. We're back, Springheads.
Sean finishes his COVID challenge with a special, stinky quesadilla.
It's been five years since Sean and Matt took a fateful trip back to the Nassau Coliseum on New Year's Eve 1980. Luckily, Bruce has blessed the world with a recording of his 2009 return to Long Island, and the boys are back with godfather Jon Jacobs to listen and discuss. Happy birthday, Jon!
Sean makes another stinky sandwich, this time with fake meat on it.
Sean kicks off his new audio diary where he chronicles his daily adventure eating the world's stinkiest sandwich.
Relegated to the virtual studio until further notice, Matt M. drops in from quarantined territory to share news of two dastardly plans: an exploration of Coldplay's discography and a special shipment Sean's bound to receive. Make sure to grab an onion and a couple slices of rye before you listen to this one!
The great pandemic has come and the boys share their rations, along with a bold new political strategy for 2024's most daring upstart campaign. After, they explore a new single from the Killers and a couple tracks from a couple of supergroups. Please don't sue us, Julien!
It's primary season, and the boys are back to talk politics. While the NJ House is busy passing a resolution to enshrine Bruce Day, Sean and Matt take some voicemails from their constituents, postulate on the Boss' 2020 leanings, and launch a daring new campaign of their own. Please donate to the Springtime Super PAC!
It's everyone's favorite season, when the stars come out and the films reign supreme! Genesis and Jon are back in Bah Shteve Studios with youth correspondent and ingénue Lydia to break down a wonderful year at the cinema. Matt tries to carry through on a promise to only cover the Independent Spirit Awards, but Sean and the gang bring him back down to Oscar earth.
Matt M. hangs out with Sean and Matt and brings some hard hitting analysis of Phil Collins' magnum opus, specifically how its been interpreted through the years. They explore the relationship between covers and the decline of American society in late-stage capitalism. Don't worry if it sounds too heavy, Springheads, there's plenty of goofs and laughs abound!
Mike Hartwell joins the boys to recap another messy year. They go over their favorite music (and films/TV, because Sean doesn't listen to anything); later, they provide prudent advice for thriving in 2020. Plant a tree!
Christmastime is here and we've got the Seltzer Sisters themselves joining Sean and Matt to celebrate the season! Kiir and Katie help recap a tumultuous holiday visit to Guy Fieri's restaurant, debate Bruce's legacy in our current cultural milieu, and make some 2020 resolutions. Pop open a trash can full of nachos, slather yourself in donkey sauce, and listen as your Christmas dreams come true, Springheads!
Two new friends, Zach and Maddy, pile into Bah Shteve Studios and share their Springsteen stories (or lack thereof). Along the way, Sean and Matt continue their years-long debate on Bruce's female preferences, find out about a certain Crow sighting, and answer a pertinent question in the voicemail box (call in at 443-VAN-XLXO!). This is a party you don't wanna miss!
Sean continues his education in Kanye with a walkthrough of West's new project, Jesus Is King. Later, the boys review their night with some familiar musical heroes and wrap up some loose ends from Bruce's Hollywood press tour.
In theatres for one week only, Sean and Matt made separate pilgrimages to see Bruce's big screen debut, the companion film to his 2019 album Western Stars. It turned out to be quite the emotional rollercoaster, not only for them, but also for a special friend of the show who joins via voicemail. Hold someone you love and listen to the SFS official review!
It's Bruce's 70th birthday, so Sean and Matt fire up their computers and plug into Virtual Bah Shteve Studios to cover the festivities. Later on, the boys get ready for their rendezvous with another golden oldie, and reminisce about the greatest '76 of them all: 1776. Make sure to pack your rations and your parachute for another classic episode!
Spoiler alert: the boys finally saw Blinded by the Light, a shoddy yet endearing entry in the Bruce fan art pantheon. In true Jersey fashion, godfather of the cast Jon Jacobs comes along for some hot takes on the film, and just like Don Corleone, they don't pull any punches or leave any cannolis behind. Springheads, you've been warned, major plot details follow!
We've got not one, but two guests in Bah Shteve Studios this week, and spoiler alert: they don't know much about Bruce! Kiir and Katie join Sean and Matt for a frantic ep: while getting derailed with some exciting new music from a couple of Chicago rappers, they make time for some classic covers and some classic speculation on Bruce's sexual preferences. It's a hot dog of an episode that you don't wanna miss!
It was hot, it was windy, but Sean and Matt had a wonderful time at Pitchfork Festival in the second city! The boys rode a different festival horse this year, so listen in as they saddle up and chat about some great shows and some great friends.
