Ep. 55 – “If You Like Megadeth You Can’t Listen to This Podcast”

It’s the OG’s birthday! BSB is back, and episode 55 kicks off with a tribute to the OG on his birthday with song and treats. After that, it’s right into the Biz as the boys discuss their most recent venture to House of Hardcore in Philly. A night at the 2300 Arena is punctuated with a coveted interview with Philadelphia’s biggest wrestling mark: The Wooch. Vinnie and the OG analyze, in depth, an off-the-cuff interview the Professor gets with a fixture of Philly’s wrestling scene. He’s the guy you see front row at every Philly-area wrestling event and the crew has affectionately dubbed him “The Wooch.” After that, The Broad Street Breakdown tries something new. A recent obsession with the channel Mtv Classic leads to a viewing party, and youse are invited along as the crew watches and comments on ‘80s metal videos from the glory days of “Headbangers Ball.” As usual, all the regular gimmicks shine: a couch-bound round of the Word Association game, The Professor gives Cheapo advice to a Gimmick Ganger seeking help in the ways of the Chep, Vinnie walks you down that dark path of “Dear Vin,” Cody Mac makes another guest appearance, and the BSB wraps it up with some prime recommendations for youse. It’s the Broad Street Breakdown: Our attitude’s all fucked up and real shitty…

Ep. 31 – “I Would Love it if I Was Capable of Loving Things”

When the Broad Street Breakdown crew goes out they always come back with stories, and this episode is no different. First up: Sicko and Mrs. X return fresh from a Morrissey concert in Philadelphia and, as expected, Sicko was miserable and tells you all about it. Afterwards, Vinnie, Gavin, The Professor, and the Sicko give you the rundown on their big Saturday night out at the 2300 Arena for House of Hardcore, and it’s a scene. Keeping it in the Biz; Paz and the OG take umbrage with the PWI top 500 list from last week’s episodes and come back with their own top 10 of workers right now. Numbers 10-6 are covered and their list is the law of the land, pals. The Professor calls an audible and shuts down the Cheapo Tip for this week after an unruly listener tries to shoot on the Professor’s way of life, and the crew ain’t having that. The usual gimmicks are there for your consumption: Word Association, “Dear Vin,” the listener mailbag, and, of course, a new round of recommendations for youse to enjoy. It’s The Broad Street Breakdown: We will not be treated as property.
