CAPE 125: An Unintentional Ad For SiriusXM and Ancestry

The “Triple O” threat of Chris Aballo, Jack DeFranco and Andrew Rizzitello descends upon your ears to bring them 81 minutes of happiness.  The boys reminisce about the early days of The Only Podcast That Matters, discuss the genius and influence of Howard Stern, and how they all became SiriusXM subscribers.  Then it’s on to the main topic of the episode, which is how the DNA magic of Ancestry has taught them a surprising amount about their ethnic backgrounds compared to what they grew up believing.

CAPE 124: Gastrorama!

Chris and Jack are joined by Cory Noyes to talk about his recent bariatric sleeve surgery, including all the work that led up to the procedure as well as everything he’s done in the last few months to continue his weight loss journey.  Chris and Jack also bemoan their weight gain and lack of activity (again), and Chris closes out the show by sharing the story of two harrowing incidents he experienced.

CAPE 123: White Dopes On Punk with Dan Hemphill

Chris and fan favorite Dan Hemphill reunite for a look back at high school and how they can’t fathom that 20 years have passed since their graduation.  Chris shares how he and Dan first bonded over music, Dan talks about how he’s been handling the pandemic, and we get the return of the Quarantine Questionnaire!

CAPE 122: The United Sad State Of Affairs

Chris is joined by Andrew Rizzitello to dive back into the pandemic/quarantine talk!  The pair discusses their mixed feelings about ongoing regulations and the annoyance of entitled Americans who rage against being inconvenienced by the pandemic.  Andrew also shares his newfound enjoyment of Proto-Germanic music, Chris defends his affection for Yngwie Malmsteen, and they both share memories of their concert-going days.

CAPE 121: #BlackLivesMatter

If you’re looking at the title of this episode and thinking you should skip it, then you probably need to hear it.  Sherrie joins Chris to share her experiences of dealing with racism as a black woman, from dealing with customers to cops and everything in between.
