2 FRiCKiN' CENTS: THE PREMiERE EPiSODE
he times are definitely interesting and we here at ROCKWIRED feel the need to say something about them, but in a way that doesn't beat people over the head with a bunch of platitudinous virtue signalling have us coming off like blowhards. Our newest podcast 2 FRICKIN CENTS, comes from a column that used to run in our monthly publication of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE. It was our signature look at what was going on in the news and pop culture and giving our one-of-a-kind spin on it. It was our chance to show the world that they should sleep welling knowing that we aren't the ones doing the nightly news. It was big hit in our publication, and now that we no longer produce the monthly, we figured we'd give it a show as a podcast series, one that we can put together quickly and easily during the time in between the posting of articles. In short, this new podcast is designed to make us look busy. This show is ai chance to vent about things going on in pop culture while filling you in on the latest music that is coming to ROCKWIRED. In our premiere show, host BRIAN LUSH gives his thoughts on the recent PR disaster of ROLLING STONE's odd profile on JOHNNY DEPP. You can check out the full article on ROLLING STONE right here. The article is really something. Otherwise we would never refer anyone to ROLLING STONE. And then we have STAR WARS hatred and the news of DISNEY rolling back on the output of STAR WARS films due to the underwhelming performance of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. The news is sad, but the galaxy far, far away ain't what it used to be. Speaking of a franchise that has comeback form the dead only to be pulled, ROSEANNE will live another season as THE CONNORS without the shrill matriarch. Apparently, BARR signed away creative control so the cast and crew can keep working. The show will also feature music from the likes of BROKEN TESTIMONY, NEVERWONDER and BOARDING SCHOOL DROPOUTS.
