Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast #160: Cody Okonski of Millington

Life is full of surprises. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Our guest today is Cody Okonski of ska punk band, Millington, and he had a good surprise for me! While talking with him, I found out he interned for John Feldmann at his studio in California. I did not know this ahead of time before the interview. I found out while we were talking and it was a cool discovery. If you’re not familiar with John Feldmann, he is the frontman of Goldfinger and also a well known producer. The album we specifically talk about that Feldmann produced is California” by Blink-182. You’ll find out the reason why when you take a listen. We also dive into how he learned Japanese and what’s in store for Millington. Thanks for talking with me, Cody! 

Much Love,
