Baumann and Burch, Episode 15: Mentholated Buzz Lightyear Holidays

There’s a title that doesn’t have anything to do with the podcast, which is in fact a Top 100 list of the most ’90s songs in the style of our last post. Listen to hear Matt’s Eddie Vedder impression (prefaced by Tim’s impeccable freestyle), how emo everyone was during America’s most cheerful decade maybe ever, and to discuss the deep and abiding silliness of “Pepper,” “One Week,” and especially “Hook.” The Popper abides.
