Did Patrick Rothfuss throw away the live podcast DVD Brad handed him? Listen and find out yo'self!

Episode 150: The Story of Matt and the Copacetics


Episode 150?!??! Wow! The sesquicentennial episode of Agreeing to Disagree is based chiefly around an interview with Matt Di Chiara, the lead singer for local ska band The Copacetics. Before the guys dive into the interview, though, we get Senior Discount updates and some updates about projects Brad is working on. After that, they discuss the below Web Coulier, before going into some of Chuck's famous Movie Driplets concerning a possible director for the "Uncharted" movie, a remake of Chip N' Dale's Rescue Rangers, and a musical based on Back To The Future.
The guys start talking with Matt about his background as an artist. What led him to music, and to ska music in particular? How does he look at being in a band? What does he think about the local scene? How has art (and specifically music) helped him throughout his life? An engaging look at an incredibly nice human being.

Episode 149: Getting Real About Art


The 149th episode of the Chuck and Brad Podcast starts out, normally enough, with updates about Senior Discount and various productions Brad is involved in. Chuck then tells the story of a recent show experience Senior Discount had, opening for ska legends the Pilfers at Manchester 65 in Warwick RI, and the behind-the-scenes story about booking this show may surprise you (or not). Chuck is really honest here, putting it all "on front street" for Brad's (and your) edification.
This segues into a discussion about music, art, logic, comedy, and relationships over the next two hours. It's an in-depth, honest look at problems the guys are facing in their lives right now. There are also dick jokes.
