That's a wrap on my work home for the last 14 years. Tomorrow DC101 moves to brand new studios two floors down. Bittersweet because this studio wasn't perfect but I many memories were made here. Looking forward to getting into the new digs.

It has been a tumultuous month for D.C. United following the dismissal of Hernan Losada amid a cloud of controversy and confusion from supporters.

New DCU Head Coach Chad Ashton joins me to talk about the transition from Losada to him. What's changed, what's stayed the same, and what's ahead. Ashton discusses the "have fun" comments from the players and himself that spurred so much unrest amongst fans as well as the disappointing U.S. Open Cup result against bitter rivals, New York Red Bulls.

Finally, he gives injury updates on Bill Hamid and Andy Najar.

#PearlJam is back on the road and so is Jamily Matters! We discuss some of our highlights of the tour so far and share what shows we'll be attending. Then, Billie and I start ranking all the PJ songs starting from the bottom...much to Billie's consternation. Jamily Matters is available wherever you get your podcasts or click the link in bio.

05/12/2022

Jamily Matters is back and so is Pearl Jam!

It's been over two years but the band is finally back on the road for a full fledged tour! Roche and Billie discuss the first four dates of the tour to see if they can spot any trends, give some setlist highlights, and overall impressions of the beginning of the 2022 Pearl Jam tour. They also reveal what shows they hope to attend and how they got tickets.

Then, it's the part of the podcast that Billie has been dreading. Now that they have ranked all the songs on the albums, it's time to start ranking all the PJ studio songs from least favorite to favorite! Every ranking has to start somewhere and this one starts at the bottom...and Billie couldn't be more disgusted having to do this.

Are you doing song rankings as well? Hitting up any PJ shows this year? Let us know!

PODCAST: Your Local Craft Brewery Is Bought By A Macro Brewery. Now What? | DC101 | Roche

Is it selling out or buying in? Latest ep of Head Retention discusses what happens when your favorite local brewery is acquired by a macro brewery. We use Devils Backbone Brewing Company as the focus.

Head Retention is available wherever you get your podcasts.

It was a controversial subject but the stigma of "selling out" to a macro brewery has mostly subsided. In 2016, we spoke with Devils Backbone COO, Hayes Humphreys just after their acquisition by AB InBev. He's back to give an update on life for a craft brewery that has been bought by a macro.

PODCAST: Pearl Jam And The Vinyl Renaissance | DC101 | Roche

Here's my PJ vinyl collection!

You've seen a lot of #vinyl from me recently but I've actually owned #records since the early 90s thanks to my love of Pearl Jam. They never abandoned the format and now that vinyl is back in a big way, Pearl Jam continues to set the standard. In the this ep of my PJ podcast Jamily Matters we talk about the vinyl renaissance and PJ's role in it with Jon Landman of The Syndicate entertainment company. Listen and subscribe!

Vinyl is back! But Pearl Jam never left the vinyl bandwagon. In this episode of Jamily Matters, we discuss vinyl's resurgence and how PJ helped keep the format going through the lean years.

PODCAST: Should Kids Be Banned From Your Local Craft Brewery? | DC101 | Roche

Have you listened to the latest episode of my #craftbeer #podcast Head Retention yet?

As we make our way into the taprooms of our favorite #local breweries for winter hangs, the issue of kids in breweries becomes an important subject. Inattentive parents lead to unruly kids which lead to a chaotic, destructive, and sometimes dangerous #beer drinking experience. And no one wants. Some breweries are banning kids from their brewery. Cedar Run Brewery has limited the amount of access times for children on their property to encourage a more adult oriented experience. They explain why and give some horror stories of how a few bad apples forced them to make this decision. What are your thoughts on kids in breweries?

Head Retention tackles a subject so controversial, we had to do a second episode about it. Kids in breweries, yay or nay? The owner and head brewer of Nokesville's Cedar Run Brewery give all too familiar examples of how inattentive parents and unruly kids can ruin brewery experience for everyone.

When I started DC101's #TeamOneMoreLight I could never imagine the impact we could make or the money we could raise in the fight to #StopSu***de. Year five of our team and our first year back since #COVID changed our world and we raised over $50,000 for the American Foundation for Su***de Prevention - NATIONAL CAPITAL AREA which brings our overall total to over $250,000 for AFSP since 2017.

Amazing.

Inspiring.

Humbling.

Heartfelt thanks to Leidos for partnering with us on this worthy cause, my co-workers and bosses at DC101 for seeing my vision of the work we could do and bringing it to life, Ellen and the entire team at the American Foundation For Su***de Prevention for educating me on this issue, then showing me how one voice can make a difference. There is no way I can express my appreciation and gratitude to Barry, Zack, Eric, and Brent of Shinedown and their team at In De Goot for their unwavering support of this event. They've donated thousands of dollars and countless hours of their free time to #BeTheVoice of the voiceless. Brent and Zack, you have a friend for life in me.

Finally, thanks to YOU. Whether you've walked with us at some point, made a donation to our team, or just heard me talking about su***de prevention on the radio, you've made a difference. We let everyone know that's ok not to be ok. It's ok to talk about mental health. It's ok to ask for help. Together, we are ending the stigma of mental health. And yes, you CAN still donate to our team.

We walk tomorrow for all those impacted by su***de.

If you could walk with us or make a donation to our team, I would be grateful.

DC101 and Leidos have joined forces and partnered with the American Foundation for Su***de Prevention - NATIONAL CAPITAL AREA in support of the 2021 Washington, D.C. Out of the Darkness Walk tomorrow Saturday, October 23rd.

The DC101 One More Light team, captained by Roche On Air, is in its 5th year and has recruited more than 500 team members, raising an incredible amount of funding in support of AFSP’s mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by su***de.

There's still time to join or donate to DC101 & Leidos’ One More Light Team by visiting afsp.org/DC101 or afsp.org/Leidos. All donations help bring the AFSP one step closer to achieving their bold goal to stop the su***de rate 20% by 2025.

Thank you for your support.
