It's the EIGHTH YEAR of the BOX, and no one seems to care less than DJ.  He does, however, manage to thank all the listeners for making any of this possible and talks about the countdowns he thinks he used to do for the BOXiversary shows as well as all of the "good ideas" he had for this year's - but managed to not do.  But by The Bottom Ten of The Top Twenty Dj has an awful lot to say about good information, where to get it and how f*cking easy that is to do.  He uses the 7 minute conversation he had with Jimmy and Mike about the new "The Suicide Squad" movie - not a sponsor - and all of the information he was able to gather from it as the baseline for just how easy it is to acquire expert information, from trusted sources, these days.  And (sternly) points out that everyone has access to experts within their spheres of influence, but people need to do a better job of choosing those actual experts (local doctors, researchers, front-line workers, etc.) instead of choosing the other "experts" (politicians, dipsh*ts on facebook, their loudest friend, etc.).

DJ also engages the chat in the fairly divisive issue of separating art from the artist when it comes to really sh*tty people.  The chat considers whether or not the Harry Potter universe can be separated from JK Rowling and her "simply disgusting" views on transgendered people and DJ suggests that indeed they can.  And he offers up that everyone needs to draw their own lines in the sand for what they will and will not support citing that he himself has very public and very disliked social views by at least half the country and a solid 90% of social media and yet he still believes people can - and should - like the music he puts out because that "art" is very much NOT an extension of those views or representative of that side of this particular artist.  He uses Rage Against the Machine as an example of what that extension might look like in a band and then proceeds to throw Chick Fil A under the bus for being yet another sh*t-social company, that millions have no problem giving their money to, despite there being other, better and more socially conscious options, like Popeyes - also not a sponsor.

Why sleeping well on Wednesday nights is for amateurs, how Cage the Elephant ruined the BOX replays, where those damn microchips actually are - and MORE!

 This ain't your mom's lunchbox.  

Sadly, despite paying full royalties on the BOX, the RIAA "antipiracy" department has rules against using copyrighted material without permission on the podcast replay, so you won't hear anything except direct submissions here, but you can still catch all the music from the show when the BOX runs live, Thursdays at noon on
