The Casual Sound playing only the finest Indie, Brit-pop, Shoegaze, Baggy, Post-Punk, Twee, and Garage tunes. Every week award-winning club DJ Tyler Jacobson, Jake Ryan (formerly of Danger Radio), and Lenny compile a setlist of the best counter-culture sounds, both new and old. Born of Denver, CO's Indie 101.5 in 2009, the station's weekly Danger Radio show morphed into a podcast at the station's demise. Over its five year lifespan, the podcast generated a healthy international following. After a three year hiatus, Tyler and Jake brought the show back to life as The Casual Sound, and included their good friend Lenny as co-host.

||ExplicitIt’s Episode 16 allofasudden!||In this episode, Tyler says something that just pissed Jake Ryan right off. But you’ll never know what it was cos his anger occurred off air – and it wasn’t really anger – more like just a general disgust in humanity.||11/14/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

Not usually a big fan of podcasts, but this one is terrific. The tracklists are always great and the banter is enjoyable without being distracting. Definitely worth a listen if you like shoegaze/baggy/indie or are just a fan of music snobbery in general.
...This is this!
