    I love this podcast! And Pete's HBO special Faces and Sounds is great too! This episode is pretty interesting...lots of early band tidbits

    still have a half hour left in it, but this has been an absolutely fantastic interview

    I think the interview had great opportunity to be really special, and overall was. However, it felt like Pete knew nothing about Jim or his band aside from them making Bleed American. He cut Jim off constantly so it made it tough for Jim to explain what was on his mind.

    I still really enjoyed it because Jim went into how Jimmy Eat World came to be, how they got where they are, and he talked about his recovery. He discussed a lot of cool things. I've literally never in my life seen a Jimmy Eat World interview I don't think, so it's nice to be able to fill in the gaps in my mind a bit.

    Thanks for posting it!

    His appearance on the Andy Greenwald podcast last month was really good too - especially because they have history from Andy touring with Jimmy Eat World when writing his book.

    I'll have to check this out, any tips on how best to find that episode. I typed in the name to the iTunes podcast app and don't really know which show this is on

    You should find it on "The Watch" podcast feed. That's the other podcast Andy does with Chris Ryan regarding television, movies and music, but his Andy Greenwald Podcast interviews go up on that feed too. It's dated October 26th. Hope that helps!
