About Us

A confused feed hosting 2 podcasts at the moment. Mad Sounds, a biweekly music-talk/review show hosted by Mark Berman (Fully Involved) & Johnny Goens (Viralrak/Charlemagne's Menagerie), went on hiatus in early 2018. Currently, the focus is on the much more niche Honky Chat, where Mark & co-host Steffi Moreno listen through & comment on Elton John's entire discography... most of which came out long before they were born.

Latest Episodes

HONKY CHAT Ep. 2: Tumbleweed Connection

Wecome to the yee yee club bitch, it's time for us to talk about Elton's acclaimed 3rd album. One southern-fried concept, zero singles (except in New Zealand) and a lot of loaded war imagery. Enjoy our track-by-track deep dive that takes way longer than either of us intended. You can followus on Twitter @MarkMadSounds & @SteffiMishell. Special thanks to Hannah Langford (@infinityxhannah) for the awesome new podcast artwork!

HONKY CHAT Ep. 1: Empty Sky / Elton John

Taking you to the pilot of a brand new series, going track-by-track through every Elton John album.. This time, we look at his humble beginnings; all the half-baked narratives, baffling Bob Dylan impressions & literal recaps of the album we'd just heard. All of whichhe had to go through to become the icon we know today. This is Honky Chat. Desperately looking for feedback on this one, so please leave any thoughts you might have on iTunes, YouTube (via the MadSounds channel) or on Twitter! Speaking of, you can also follow us @MarkMadSounds & @SteffiMishell. Thanks for listening!

If you have kept this in your feed these past 6 months, I'm eternally grateful, &hope this return won't let you down.(This audio was mostly made for the YouTube channel, but it works just as well here. I'll probably delete this once both of these episodes are up.)

Ep. 29: Tom Petty's 40 Years of Rock Excellence

In which we go over the long career & legacy of one of my all-time favorite artists, the late Tom Petty. As the everyman's rock star, betweenthe Heartbreakers, the Wilburys, Mudcrutch & solo work,he's left behind one of the most solid & timeless discographies inrock. However, for a guy that's never cared for flashy videos orreinventing himself for the times,this may have ended up a double-edged sword. Find out why I (along with more casual fan Johnny) believe that in this special retrospective episode. // SONGS PLAYED IN ORDER:Saving Grace (Highway Companion, 2006),I Should Have Known It (Mojo, 2010),Make It Better (Southern Accents, 1985),Asshole (Songs & Music from "She's the One", 1996),Hungry No More (Mudcrutch 2, 2016),Joe (The Last DJ, 2002),Echo, (Echo, 1999),We Stand a Chance (Long After Dark, 1982),Anything That’s Rock ‘N’ Roll (self-titled, 1976). // Check out more on the Mad Sounds YouTube channel, and follow us on Twitter! // Mark @SpinItReviews, Johnny @Viralrak
