Bernie just destroyed everyone else in Nevada and now this is really happening. The media establishment has still been clinging to the desperate hope that perhaps the Sanders campaign’s momentum had diminished somehow, downplaying his victories in Iowa and New Hampshire as much as possible, but after Saturday it became apparent to everyone that there is an unstoppable movement growing in America that is about to take over the Democratic Party and that every single assumption media gatekeepers had been making for years about Bernie and his supporters was all completely wrong. It made for an incredibly surreal night of cable news, so Rob, Jordan and guest George Schmitz break that down as well as what it was like on the ground in Nevada and what this is going to mean for this primary, the 2020 election and america in general.Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes here.Or on Spotify HERE.

My guest this week is George Schmitz, drummer for Stick To Your Guns. George is a great drummer and friend and one of the first drumming friends I made when I joined Stray From The Path. He's also a very politically active guy so we talk about that a fair bit. We also talk about the difficulties of upping your stage production in a hardcore band without 'selling out', how George joined STYG, playing to a click track live and obviously we talk about TAMA DRUMS BEING SICK. Our top 5 songs are from The Dillinger Escape plan.
