Mike Kennerty stops by to talk about the new Weasel album, The Awful Disclosures of Screeching Weasel. We play some new songs and talk general nonsense about the best band ever. And since Mike plays in and produces Weasel records, I figured he would be the perfect guy to go head to head with in a little game of Name That Weasel Lead. Hosted by none other than Craig Rimmington. Bitchin!
