For example, “Dirty Little Secret” by All-American Rejects or “Dear Maria, Count Me In” by All Time Low. When I heard, “Paris in 39”, by Canadian alternative rock band, The Midnight Echo, not once did I hear […]
Pop punk and pizza
It’s been awhile since I’ve eaten pizza with a band. Before the pandemic, I used to do it almost every single episode. I decided to start bringing it back, except this time, it’s a virtual pizza party! The Fallaways of Vancouver, BC, ordered two Papa Johns pizzas. One, Hawaiian, and the other was a supreme […]
I can’t imagine what it must be like to start up a brand new band right before a pandemic hits. I’m sure joyful. of Chicago is not the only band that is experiencing this right now. At least it hasn’t stopped the new pop rock trio from releasing new music. Joyful’s latest single, “Pilot Light”, […]
You just never know what you’re going to learn on Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast. Today, I learned a lot about Albuquerque, New Mexico! Albuquerque is home to punk band, D20.

Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast has officially made it to one-hundred episodes! I’m still in disbelief that we have finally reached this milestone. I say that because at the beginning of January 2020, I announced my hiatus from the podcast. My mental health had reached an all time low and it was hard to function through […]
Hey, I hope you’re having a great week! So, last week on the Pop-Punk & Pizza social media pages I made a post saying I needed to have more female guests on the podcast. One of the first women I thought of was, Tahlena Chikami, lead vocalist, of ska punk band, Bite Me Bambi. I’ve […]

Hi, all! I hope you had a wonderful Canada Day and Fourth of July. My three year old son watched fireworks for the very first time in person and it was a beautiful thing to witness. It’s the beginning of the month so, it’s time to revamp our Spotify playlist! I must say, I think […]
It was just last August when I discovered Chicago skate punkers, Much The Same, at 350 Fest in Tinley Park, IL. They were the perfect band to warm the crowd up for, The Mengziners, who would play later that evening. Most everyone in the crowd seemed to know who Much The Same was and sang […]
