Our guest bailed and it was April 1st so Jonah and frequent guest host Benny Horowitz (The Gaslight Anthem, Bottomfeeder) decided to interview each other. Over the course of 90 minutes your favorite hosts discuss current sports controversies, their thoughts on the upcoming presidential election and the proper airport etiquette for 2016. We also talk about the way social media has affected society, why nu metal won't seem to go away and how John Goodman was cast to play what is supposedly the best baseball of all-time. At times this is rambling at times it's goofy but at it's core it embodies what Going Off Track is all about. In fact we're pretty glad that our guest didn't show up because it gave us the chance to get personal and bond over lukewarm Budweiser—so sit back, crack a tallboy and listen up.

Chicago punk legends Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms) and Derek Grant (Alkaline Trio) came by Going Off Track to help us celebrate our 200th episode with guest host Dan Ozzi (Noisey)!
