About the show

SlapperCast is a podcast produced weekly by Blaggards, a band based out of Houston, TX. We share our experiences of what it's like doing this for a living, talk about music we love (and hate), and frequently welcome guests on the show. Past guests include drummer Vinny Appice and comedian Doug Stanhope.

Hosted by Patrick Devlin (lead singer & guitarist), Chad Richard Smalley (bassist), and Eric C. Hughes (drummer).

Full video versions of each episode are published on the SlapperCast YouTube channel. All episodes are mixed and edited by Chad.

"The official podcast of all things Blaggards. Found on all major pod platforms and delivered weekly, it’s a behind-the-music view of the band, with tidbits for new fans (it’s just Blaggards, not The Blaggards, newbs) and cool stuff for longtime followers. Its engaging hosts are smart and funny." — Jesse Sendejas, Houston Press
