Welcome to Post-Pinkerton, a podcast about Weezer, hosted by John Carroll

Jul 10, 2019

Ep. 74. You'd think this rough, 46-second demo would inspire an equally short podcast episode, but instead, it allows John to discuss many topics, ranging from Rivers Cuomo's longtime friendship with the musician Kevin Ridel to Cuomo's business instincts in the early 2000s.
