Welcome to What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast Season Six, Episode 13, “Lightning Bolt”
In this episode I got out of my house and saw a Lightning Bolt show, which was a big success. I used a ride service, ate a pre-show dinner, and hustled to the club, where they gave me a seat right next to the band.
