We've reached a new year and what better way to mark the coming of a new year than to toss away our calendars and journey back in time. My guest this episode is Brad Tenbrook, co-founder of the Helping Friendly Podcast and my co-host there and on the upcoming Osiris Media podcast, Undermine. Brad and I take several trips through time to visit a mess of terrific shows from the first twenty years of Grateful Dead. Come for the great jams and stay for the time travel jokes. Brad and I have selected a bunch of songs for your listening pleasure.Allow me to remind you that the Brokedown Podcast is part of the Osiris Media.
