Robbie told a funny story about how the greatest terrorist attack ever on American soil conveniently got him out of homework. Dave used the date to show exactly how much we’ve changed as a nation culturally, economically and socially and showed just how much our acceptance of big government post 9/11 was the catalyst. This was a very thought provoking episode you’ll never forget.

The Skanks, Big Jay Oakerson, Luis J Gomez and Dave Smith, were joined by not one but two late arriving guests this week as friends of the show Bonnie McFarlane and Dan Soder stopped by.

The trio watched some awkward Connan clips and judged the ladies of the Miss America pageant, but when their guests arrived this episode reached legendary status. As promised on last weeks episode the 5 comedians did a deep dive onto Luis’ former bands website, Saltyblackflour. Words don’t do this one justice, but suffice it to say, this episode will be talked about by skanks fans for quite some time.

Jamey Jasta was back at it again on Friday, welcoming in Fronz from Atilla to join him backstage at another stop on warped tour. The Hatebreed frontman had an interesting conversation about the nature of business and hustle in the music game eventually turning into an enlightening talk about bands in rock helping each other out in a “rising tide lifts all boats” mentality. Very fun chat between two of the smartest people working in music right now.
Dave Smith wrapped up another great week at GaS Digital with another excellent episode on Friday. After an absolutely whirlwind week that included moving, his significant other being sick and the release of his debut comedy special Libertas Dave was understandably tired.
