Uncle Ho, our song is fire of pure love, it's a dovecote dove, olive from an olive grove. It is the universal song chain that will triumph, the right to live in peace.

Oh my god we’re back again.

I've seen horrors... horrors that you've seen. George and Josh relive a traumatic tour that is fun to reflect back on in a sadistic kind of way.
I am eating from the trash can of Ideology all the time. The band started in 2003 believe it or not folks (haha), and 17 years in, we have evolved in thought and mind on a variety of topics and issues, and I think it’s important to reflect on those sorts of things, because that’s how we learn. Not idealistically through divine revelations, but through experience and perspective that shape our understanding and ideology. Our material conditions produce our culture and ideas, that then in turn influence and reinforce aspects of our life in a cyclical fashion, that is, until there is a rupture. Some old fuck once said “It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.” So come on the journey with us.

STYG was a part of the 2010 Thrash and Burn tour, which on first glance, might seem like an unremarkable tour, but it plays a very important role in STYG history, especially in relation to the Hope Division.
“If we have shortcomings, we are not afraid to have them pointed out and criticized, because we serve the people. Anyone, no matter who, may point out our shortcomings. If he is right, we will correct them. If what he proposes will benefit the people, we will act upon it.”
Militant and unconditional solidarity with black self-determination. The rebellions sweeping the nation are righteous and just. Always anti-racist. Always anti-fascist. Always anti-capitalist. Always anti-imperialist.

An episode for the moms and dads of the world. Touring for a living presents some interesting challenges to parenting, so we thought it would be fun to have some dads on the cast to talk about the joys of parenting. We get into a whole range of topics, from the difficulties of trying to have family out on tour, to large, existential questions that Chris and Dan grapple with as parents.
This one goes out to all the coffee heads out there, an episode strictly dedicated to talking about the good stuff. STYG has got some coffee geeks in the band so we thought it would be fun to sit down and talk about our quest for the perfect cup. We are in a unique position to check out shops from all over the world while we are on tour, and it’s been a fun way for us to get to know different cities, countries, even cultures. What started as just a stimulant to keep us up on night drives has quickly turned into an obsession, so we really do a deep dive on all things coffee. If drinking coffee is a part of your everyday, but you don’t really pay any mind to what goes into your cup, maybe this episode will inspire you to explore some shops in your neck of the woods.

In continuing our trend of covering total buzzkill topics, we did an episode about Veganism. Yes folks, the soy boys are here to talk about the animals. Now, not all of STYG is Vegan, but we do have Vegan members and Vegan ideas have influenced the STYG ideology for over a decade now. And the Vegan members of the band might even break some of the stereotypes you hold of Vegans! We cover a broad range of topics from spicy takes in the Vegan discourse, to how trash our diets tend to get while we are on tour.
