Recommended if You Like is Boing Boing's weekly podcast of longform conversations with musicians, cartoonists, writers, and other creative types. In this episode, Brian speaks to hacker and musician Travis Morrison, best known as the lead singer of The Dismemberment Plan, described by Rolling Stone as "indie heroes." The band reunited in 2010 after breaking up in 2003 and released their first album in 12 years, Uncanny Valley. In the podcast, Travis makes some pretty solid arguments in favor of getting Bob Mould to appear on The Simpsons.
