This week, I’m joined Dave Raymond, singer/guitarist/songwriter for the super-cool Chicago band Hidden Hospitals. He picked the location for the recording: The vegetarian taqueria Quesadilla La Reina Del Sur (2235 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60647). The food was really good, if not destructively spicy.

If you happen to be listening to this during the week of 5/14/18, go see Hidden Hospitals May 18th at the Burlington!

Here’s what we talked about on this episode, sponsored by Boost Mobile:

  • The “chorizo” and “chicharrón” tacos: Totally meatless, and too scaldingly hot to actually touch.
  • The radio history Hidden Hospitals and I share.
  • Hidden Hospitals: Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
  • The only incontestable excuse for guest cancellations.
  • The incursion of Black Bear Rodeo into the podcast recording.
  • Hidden Hospitals history.
  • The new album and the transformation of the band’s sound for the new album, “Liars.”
  • A lot of songs on the new album are about relationships… Dave explains.
  • “Liars” is on vinyl, and it looks cool.
  • Why vinyl is awesome.
