Self-Inflicted Aural Nostalgia: The Guided By Voices Podcast takes an in-depth look at the history of, and context behind, every GBV record, starting with their 1987 debut.

Far exceeds expecations
This isn't a fan's love letter to his favorite band; it's a history lesson that manages the amazing feat of augmenting one of the things I enjoy most in this world: the music of Guided by Voices. This is more professionally produced than some of GBV's early works, as well as more consistent.
A must for any GBV fan
I look forward to every episode. My suggestion, listen to the album being discussed and then be prepared to talk to the podcast as it plays. Lots of insight, opinions and passion. Just what's needed for any serious GBV conversation!
A GBV fan must
