The members of Blaggards, a band based out of Houston, TX, share their experiences and occasionally chat with guests.
"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 (Episode 5 discusses how the band’s music has been used in films like How to Be Single and TV shows like The Good Wife). Its engaging hosts are smart and funny. An interesting aside is the podcast also offers occasional glimpses back at Houston’s music community." — Jesse Sendejas, Houston Press
