This week we tackle the seminal breakout album by Say Anything, the rock opera that never was, the soundtrack to every mid-‘00s self-deprecating crying jag: ...Is a Real Boy. From their humble beginnings at Jewish summer camp to touring the world with some of emo’s most prestigious acts, Zaddy Max Bemis and his band of unmerry gentlemen left an indelible mark on the genre with impeccable songwriting and master pop hooks. Take a deep dive with us as we uncover their legacy, and Jill coins the term “Jewcore” (she can do that it’s fine).

Hosts: Jill Beytin & Cameron Cook

Cover: Edward Heinrich

Theme Song: Antonino Tumminelli
