Singer-songwriter Anika Pyle formerly of the band Chumped talked about the genesis of her new solo act Katie Ellen. She also explains to Steven and Jonah what The Gender Binary is and what it was like growing going up getting a Montessori education. We discuss how she almost went broke attending NYU and why she was determined to escape the cycle of poverty she was born into. (Just to clarify, she intended on breaking that cycle by going to college not by starting a punk band, for some reason.) We also talked about her current day job at a barista, why your tastes in everything from food to friends is ultimately based on your access to time and money and a bunch of other stuff that we're not really smart enough to totally understand. It's a crazy world out there and we're glad we have Anika to keep us in check. Follow Anika on Twitter Katie Ellen on Bandcamp

Astronautalis aka rapper Andrew Bothwell came by Going Off Track with guest host Benny Horowitz (The Gaslight Anthem) to discuss the time he accidentally fractured his skull falling off the Warped Tour stage and how his adventures in eastern Europe influenced his new album Cut The Body Loose. He also talks about why Harley Davidson gave him a motorcycle to drive all over the country just for being a nice guy and how he developed his uncanny ability to freestyle on literally every topic from Hungry Hungry Hippos to Kanye West. "When it comes to rhyming these days I don't have to think about the words," Andy admits at one point. "There are certain elements of improvisation  and technical rap stuff [when it comes to crafting a rhyme] and it's like the same way a chess player can see multiple moves ahead of the game, the longer I do it the further ahead that I can see." Judging by this new disc, Andy is staring straight into 2059 right now so Jay-Z had better stay on his game. Astronautalis Astronautalis on Twitter
