Hello and Welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! Kim, Nick, Dogwater Dick *and* our favorite Production Assistant, Ian, are in the studio this week with the lovely Gina Rose! There’s also a surprise guest with us this week who we NEVER thought we’d get on the show. Press play to find out who it is!
Gina Rose is a singer-songwriter from Reno, Nevada. She’s been described as young, warm, and wise with a knack for writing melancholic and memorable tunes. I’d say that’s all true. Gina’s next show is at Piper’s Opera House in Virginia City, October 17th, for a special edition of Loud As Folk. Also playing Piper’s are friends of the show Outlaw Kindred, So Sol, Huckleberry Road, and Greg Gilmore. Thanks to Gina and Andrew for being on the show. We had a blast!
Next week we’re back with Eddie and the Subtitles! Thanks for listening!
young warm and wise
Hello! Welcome to this week’s Worst Little Podcast! We’re stoked AF to welcome first timers to the show, skate punks Knocked Down! They brought some high energy tunes and some hilarious quiz answers. Kim was MIA due to a party injury, so Rick, Rory, and Nick had to pick up the slack. We learn a ton about the dudes in the band and hear some rad tunes, including some brand new songs from their upcoming full length album. This is punk rock, folks. Press play!
Knocked Down is Chris Whaley (guitar/vocals) and Tony Heckerman (drums formerly of Melvin Makes Machineguns). Find them on Facebook, Instagram, and at their website for tour dates and more. We’ll keep our eyes on the band and let you know when they’re playing around these parts too! Thanks to Chris and Tony for being on the show and for supporting our shenanigans. Y’all were great!

Podcasting live from the recent, sweaty past, we’re bringing you the power trio from Carson, our friends Blunderbusst! It has been six whole years since they have graced our humble studio and they’re bringing a heavy dose of nostalgia and kick ass tunes. This week we’re talking clown Elvis’s, hamburger hands, and sweet, sweet practice holes! Press play for this podcast EXCLUSIVE from Blunderbusst!
There were no interns this week so Kim had to do all the heavy lifting. And by heavy lifting I mean beers and conversation! Kim’s adventures this week consisted of clowning around with a clown Elvis impersonator and turning 35! Here’s proof that Clownvis exists! Come back, Clownvis!
Blunderbusst is Jen Scaffidi, Carolyn Gates, and Carson Cessna. We’re waiting with baited breath for upcoming show dates. Worst Little Podcast Listeners will be some of the first in the know. We hear there might be some stuff happening at Foxy Olive and St. James Infirmary soon! We loved having these three on the show again. Let’s hope it’s not another six years for the next time.
