Jenna von Oÿ aka Six from the nineties sitcom "Blossom" came by Going Off Track to give parenting tips and discuss her book "Situation Momedy: A First-Time Mom's Guide To Laughing Your Way Through Pregnancy & Year One." We also discuss the time that Jenna big-timed George Clooney, what it was like working with a sex symbol like Joey Lawrence and why performing in front of a live audience was so integral to the sitcoms she starred in. "As much as I love film because there's the dramatic stuff and that's what I started out doing as a kid and I really love doing that, there's just something about comedy," von Oÿ explains when asked if she has a preference when it comes to what type of acting she pursues these days. We also discuss her book tour, co-sleeping (look it up if you don't have kids) and what it was like to learn that there's a real-life Six that was named after her. (Sorry, Nikki.)

Chris Daly, the drummer for Texas Is The Reason came by Going Off Track to discuss the way his family helped forge and cultivate his love of The Grateful Dead and how the jam band got him interested in music at an early age. We also discuss the possibly of a Jets To Brazil reunion with frontman Blake Schwarzenbach now that Jawbreaker are playing shows again (don't get too excited), Daly's current obsession with dub music which birthed his current act High Disciple and his current career as a high-end hairdresser who actually cut Jonah's mom's luscious locks once, not even knowing that her son was a famous podcaster at first. "I'll tell you right now, with Texas Is The Reason the when the offers were bigger made it easier to step away from our lives and families so it was enticing in that way, but ultimately it's fun for us to be together and we enjoy being in each other's company," Daly explains when asked what the motivation was for his legendary post-hardcore band to reunite a few years ago. "There's a lot of work involved in getting it and a lot of pressure in getting it to sound the best that it could sound and I don't think we would have done it if we didn't think it was fun." If you saw the way the band members were grinning throughout these shows, it's obvious that this statement is true. Check out High Disciple Why are we laughing in the intro?

Former Gallows frontman Frank Carter came by the podcast to talk about his current project Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and their latest album, Modern Ruin. We also discuss his tattooing career, the brief tenure of his major-label project Pure Love and why Carter is the only person on the planet who is obsessed with both Ennio Morricone and Trap Them. He also talks about the violent musical project he never released, why he bought a house for his mother as soon as he finally started making money from his art and his struggles with anxiety. “I think we have a huge responsibility to teach the generations that are coming acceptance and equality overall because I think that’s the one thing that’s eating us up,” Carter explains when asked how having a child has affected his formerly nihilistic worldview. “My daughter is going to be influenced by whatever she’s influenced by and I’m just going to do my best to teach her what is right, which is probably wrong because I don’t know what I’m doing half the time.” From business disasters to show injuries this episode of Going Off Track truly lives up to our moniker.

Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly returned to Going Off Track to discuss the the impetus behind the band getting back on the road, the saga of Martin Shkreli and how he's been keeping busy working for a publicity agency and continuing to help break new bands. "We haven't gotten a chance to do this in so long that [Thursday] just want to make something beautiful," Rickly explains when asked about the band's then-upcoming tour with Touche Amore and Basement. "Right now is such a heightened emotional climate for politics so I feel like [our shows] are a really welcoming place to express yourself, be met with open arms and have compassion for everybody. That was always the simple message of Thursday and I sometimes wonder if it was too little, if it wasn't political enough, and right now the simplicity of our message in such a cruel time feels like something I really want to do." We have no idea what Thursday's future plans are but Geoff is very active on Twitter, even with trolls (which we also address on the podcast), so you can follow him there and chances are he'll engage with you to build a dialogue. Just try to be civil because a little understanding goes a long way... even in a car crash. (Sorry.) Thursday Follow Geoff on Twitter photo: Carly Hoskins
