    Ep37: Mike Henneberger

    1:26:59

    He's an Emmy-winning producer, music journalist, author, comedian, and vinyl collector. Mike Henneberger has been around the block a few times, with a resume that reads like a "Who's Who" list of entertainment and media outlets that include Comedy Central, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Vice, and Spin. He talks about his book “Rock Bottom at the Renaissance: An Emo Kid’s Journey Through Falling In and Out of Love In New York City," where he chronicles a weekend of debaucherous carelessness in his pursuit of love. Serving more as a cautionary tale of how not to pursue love, but all the while set against a soundtrack that perfectly compliments the angst, depression, and anxiety swimming through Mike's head during this time. Buy the book and listen to the audiobook for songs by Jimmy Eat World, Mayday Parade, Bayside, The Dangerous Summer, Bright Eyes, and more.
