Now Has a Pearl Jam Podcast!

by John Reynolds on April 1, 2010

As you many of you know, we at have been writing about Pearl Jam for close to 18 years. JR has written for this site and other sites including (defunct) and (coming back soon), Jess wrote and published the incredible Tickle My Nausea Fanzine, and Kathy started the incredible Footsteps fanzine starting in December 1992.

But this is 2010, and we’re looking to expand our horizons and do something new. We asked in 2003, “Does the world need another Pearl Jam website?” and the answer was a resounding “YES”! So now we ask “Does the world need another Pearl Jam podcast?” and the answer is .. another resounding “YES!”.

With that, we are introducing ThickCast: Speed of Sound

We love Donny Anderson’s All That’s Sacred podcast. At 46 episodes and counting, he’s really made a great contribution to the community. In fact, JR even makes a vocal cameo in Episode #45. It’s always funny to hear at the beginning where he’s (not) broadcasting from.  The “This Day in Pearl Jam History” section is funny, and he has referenced our site many times for that, and we appreciate it. Oh, yeah, and the music! It’s always great to hear great live cuts as well as rarities that seldom see the light of day.

So we are going to take what Donny has started, and try to build on it, with the power of one male and two female voices. It’s tough to coordinate the recording over two time zones and three hours difference, but we’re going to give it a try.
