It’s been a long time coming, but the Tim Pod is back and better than ever. The 8th installment of what one loyal fan called “the only thing worth checking out on Jenkem” features Danny Renaud, the breakout star from Habitat’s 2003 video Mosaic who ended up breaking both of his legs from falling off of a 9 story balcony a few years later. We interviewed Renaud back in 2012, but since Tim and him used to tour together and all that, expect some intimate details you wouldn’t hear anywhere else.
Don’t forget to check out the show highlights and the links and mentions from this week’s episode. And, as always, send shit for Tim to talk about next time here: [email protected].
