About this Episode

For a very special all-'Is This Worse Than Jazz?' installment of the podcast, Dave, Sarah, and Tara invite discussion of their own possibly worse than jazz TV phenomena, and dig into questions submitted by listeners like you, grading them on an appropriately jazzy scale:
1. Rusty Gate
2. The Question Is Zoot
3. Smooth Poison
4. Atonal Omens Of Pain
5. Scat Man Down
6. Barrelhouse Of Horror
7. Boogie Woogie Influenza
8. Slaughterhouse Jive
9. Hateful Freeform Jazz
10. Infernal Tootling
The results may...really distress you. (Trigger alert: jazz.)
Sarah and The Blotter's apprentice investigator Olivia bring us a City Confidential episode about a murdered jazz musician to determine whether it is worse than jazz. Then Around The Dial stops at Married At First Sight, Netflix's Last Chance U, and another topic-appropriate vintage ad unearthed by Dave. We debate whether Everwood's Season 1 finale 'Home' deserves a spot in the Canon, and then after naming the week's Winner and Loser, it's a non-regulation Game Time that smells a bit...rank. Limber up your trumpeting lips and join us!
