Billboard-charting band the Doubleclicks are tired of getting song ideas from strangers on the Internet. So they started a podcast where they give each other song ideas—and by the end of the podcast, there's a new song! "You Should Write A Song About That" is a peek behind the curtain, a sibling conversation, and a podcast that uploads every Wednesday.

Recently discovered the Doubleclicks and started listening to podcasts so this was a no brainer. Every podcast is funny and relatable and ends with a catchy song! Find myself bringing up the podcast in conversation pretty regularly 🤓 👍👍
If you enjoy their music; which I do, you will probably enjoy this podcast. It’s a wonderful glimpse into the people behind the music. If you don’t know their music, you will still enjoy the show. It is a lighthearted, candid conversation between two talented, witty and thoroughly charming women. Intelligent but unpretentious and charming without being saccharine. Utterly adorable and engaging. Check out the podcast and check out their music. You will be delighted.
Honesty and Joy in Podcast form
No hyperbole- this is my absolute favorite podcast currently. Laser and Aubrey are siblings who have a terrific band (The Doubleclicks) and each week they write a brand new song, which is reason enough to listen to this podcast. However, what precedes the song is what i think is the best part of this podcast: an honest, funny, real conversation between two people who love and care about each other. You feel as if you are part of a private phone call between siblings, reminiscent of MBMBaM but with a deeper willingness to go beyond jokes in covering topics like mental health, gender identity, and social anxiety. I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough. The songs will have you humming for days, but the conversation will fill you with joy for weeks. Just the best.
