Actress Busy Philipps (Freaks And Geeks, Dawson’s Creek) came by Going Off Track to discuss to benefits of Bulletproof coffee, her intense daily workout regimen and vaping CBD oil. We also talk about her new hypochondriac-friendly podcast with Steve Agee “We’re No Doctors,” the second season of the HBO series “Vice Principals” and why she doesn’t feel like she needs to apologize for product placement on her massive Instagram feed. “I do think it’s bullshit that artists or celebrities get put on blast for doing these kinds of partnerships because all we’re doing really in creating content for television—or anything—is creating space in between ads… and if the general public doesn’t understand that they’re stupider than I thought,” she says of the dim-witted critics who actually complain to her about this kind of stuff. “What’s the difference with me being in “Cougar Town” or taking money directly from these brands I’m promoting? There is no difference.” Finally we also highlight her favorite recent indie rock releases, the reason Busy thinks our phones may be listening to us and why she still loves being social despite having spent nearly two years in the spotlight.

Living Colour vocalist Corey Glover and guitarist Vernon Reid came by Going Off Track for a politically charged episode of the podcast about the current state of the country. Along the way we talk about the influence of Bad Brains on Living Colour’s music and racial issues that the band have been singing about since their inception in 1984. Of course we also discuss the making of the band’s brand new album “Shade,” the dynamic of the band’s relationship after three decades and how they wrote the riff for their influential anthem “Cult Of Personality,” a song that’s as relevant today as it was when it was released back in 1988. “I can’t regret where I am right now because i’m very happy with where I am,” Glover responds when asked if he would go back and change anything about his life. “The happenstance of meeting Vernon at that birthday party was very, very fruitful. The happenstance of walking into Patricia Fields and finding that stupid ass wetsuit was very fortuitous for me. Meeting the people that I’ve met good, bad or indifferent makes me who I am today.” We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves. Visit Living Colour online photo by Travis Shinn

Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins came by Going Off Track to discuss coming up in the Scranton music scene, our shared love of David Bazan and Tigers Jaw's new album "spin." We also discuss Ben's new business Hello Donuts, their respective Master's Degrees, indie rock from the Pacific Northwest and their recent decision to make the band a full-time endeavor despite their academic ambitions. "I don't have the time to split the time anymore because both reached the same point where both will suffer and it became very apparent that the band is what we want to do," Walsh explains at one point. "It's so fun, it's so fulfilling, it's so creatively what we want to be doing so it was a difficult decision but we've been fortunate enough to have really cool opportunities and you kind of have to follow it or those things won't keep happening." The band embark on a month-long tour supporting Manchester Orchestra this week so after listening to this podcast, you've got no excuse not to see Tigers Jaw when they come through your town.

Actor and star of the FX/FXX comedy/drama “You’re The Worst” came by on the cusp of its fourth season, to talk about his character Edgar Quintero’s carefully curated depiction of what it’s like to be a veteran coping with PTSD. Along the way we also discuss why he moved to New York, from Chicago, his disbelief that Donald Trump is our president and the reason that he practices his lines both sober and wasted in order to gain a new perspective on possible outcomes. “I always feel like it’s my job to give voice to the voiceless and not only with my own voice but also through Edgar,” he explains when asked about why the character is so important to him. “But I could say that for every character on the show, there aren’t a lot of characters that are on television consistently and together.” If you haven’t seen “You’re The Worst” yet, the new season kicks off on September 6th so you’ve still go plenty of time to stream the first three seasons. Trust us, you didn’t want to go outside this week anyway. You’re The Worst Follow Desmin on Twitter
