On the ninth day of the 12 Days of Christmas Six-Packs, my true love gave to me…
Today friends of the show Ken Mills, The Podfather himself, of the Zilch and Pop! podcasts and Alex Alt of the Sly Dog Music-Cast are rejoining Eric to have some holiday fun, to share some laughs and some classic holiday songs, to reminisce about favorite Christmas movies, to honor those of us that feel the sting of loneliness this time of year, to learn about the time Ken has dressed as Santa throughout his life, how Ken may even be a Santa in home as you read this (dun, dun, DUNNNNN!!!!), and to discuss some meaningful charities that could use some love this holiday season.
So start stringing some popcorn for the tree, throw on some elf slippers, and join us by the warm glow of the fireplace for some festive music and holiday cheer.
On this Six-Pack episode, Ken Mills of POP! A Pop Culture Podcast and Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle podcast return to join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to share and discuss more Duran Duran favorites. We’re each bringing two picks covering the band’s long and sometimes erratic body of work. We get into the stories around the songs, some top-notch music geekery, a few laughs, a few attempts at singing which no one should be proud of, some wonderful conversation around great tunes, and Ken even explains to us the well documented but under-appreciated 80s Music Video Rule of Three.
So sit get in touch with the ground, sell your Renoir TV set and discover or rediscover the pop mastery of Duran Duran.

We’re each bringing two picks covering the band’s long and sometimes maligned body of work. We get into them struggling with the boy band thing, the brilliance of their songwriting, the obscurity of their lyrics, the uniqueness of Simon’s voice, particularly when he gets into a Sinatra or sexy zone, and so much more.
So sit back and discover or rediscover the pop mastery of Duran Duran.

Ken Mills (known in podcasting circles as The Podfather) joins Pods & Sods as the KISScovery series keeps rocking and rolling over! A fan since 1975ish, we discuss the time his uncle first saw KISS in 1974/5 and his perfectly imperfect description of what he just saw, trading car washes for 8-track listening sessions, being only officially half a fan club member, the night that KISS died, the tour he missed out on seeing, speculation about KISS 2.0, and how PODKISST started.
