The 11th Hour is a podcast where two dudes in their 40s discuss a different Rancid song each week. They reflect on their lives, their (inexplicable) fandom, and why certain parts of our youth continue to hold meaning beyond simple nostalgia. Is it a midlife crisis or honest self-reflection? Join us on a journey to the end and find out. Follow along on Twitter or Instagram and find The 11th Hour on your favorite streaming/podcast app (Stitcher, Apple, Spotify, etc) – and, of course, always on Foxy Digitalis.
Episode #25: Telegraph Ave
We finally take a look at Troublemaker, Rancid’s most recent album, and a unexpected return to form. The episode devolves into an album review a bit, but give us a break we have been holding back on this one for a while. Is Troublemaker pound for pound better than… Indestructible? Rancid 93? Hard to say. Listen to this confounding album with an open mind and decide for yourself.
