My Name is Weezer
103 minutes | a month ago
35 - OK Human
Surprise! Jen and Patrick are back to discuss Weezer's brand new, very pandemic-appropriate, record, OK Human.
77 minutes | 2 years ago
34 - Tiny Desk and Blue vs. Pinkerton (Series Finale)
Before sailing off into the sunset, Jen and Patrick discuss Weezer's super-low energy performance behind the Tiny Desk and determine once and for all: which is the better record, Blue or Pinkerton?

33 - Weezerton at the Viper Room (with Rachel Irvin of We Are Weezer)
Notorious squares Jen and Patrick stay out past their bedtimes to see Weezer tribute band Weezerton rock out the famous Viper Room. Luckily, Rachel is there to lend a little old school rock scene cred.
71 minutes | 2 years ago
32 - Black Album
Is this a sequel to the White Album? A familiar downturn for a sometimes prolific band? A reaction to a previous failure? Jen and Patrick try to place a sorta boring record into the pantheon of Weezer records.
66 minutes | 2 years ago
31 - Teal
Jen and Patrick are cursed to discuss Weezer's cover of Africa by Toto YET AGAIN, as there's now a whole half-assed album supporting it! Which of these covers qualify as hate crimes and which are just pointless?
83 minutes | 2 years ago
30 - Africa & 2018 Updates
After ten months of silence, Jen and Patrick return with a NUMBERED LIST of things to talk about. One of those numbers? Weezer's biggest hit ever isn't even one of their songs. Weezer's cover of Africa by Toto is everywhere, and now it's even on this podcast! Plus, a Weezerton show in Fullerton! Another Weezer podcast! Toto covering Hashpipe! The Song Exploder about Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori! California Snow! The Rivers Cuomo solo tune Medicine for Melancholy!

29 - Pacific Daydream
Self-proclaimed Weezer experts Jen and Patrick have not yet been able to make themselves listen to the new Weezer record, so they're sitting down with YOU (and a few drinks) to give it the old college try. Make sure you're not driving, pregnant, or operating heavy machinery, and then crack open a beer and join in.

28 - Pacific Daydream Announcement
"Once upon a time, I, Chuang Chou, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Chou. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man." --Patrick reading River's Cuomo quoting Zhuang. Somehow this all relates to a new Weezer record. Jen and Patrick return from their extended recess to process the two new singles off the forthcoming Pacific Daydream. Not hearing guitar solos, but those lyrics are the right kind of dumb.

27 - Green Day (Part 2) - Revolution Radio
Hold on to your regularly-washed butts, Jen and Patrick are back to weigh in on the newest Green Day record on their podcast that is only ever about Weezer (and things directly related to Weezer)! It’s an historic episode-recording falling squarely the Chicago Cubs World Series win and the 2016 Presidential election, so naturally they talk a lot about dog farts. Green Day’s slick but meaningless political record puts both Jen and Patrick into kind of a funk - can they get out it? ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT.
61 minutes | 4 years ago
26 - Green Day Concert and White (Deluxe)
Jen asked Patrick to go to the Green Day concert. He said “sure.” Not only did that ruin the “El Scorcho” joke, he didn’t even go. Whatever man! Who wants to go to a 4:30 PM concert anyway? (1:00 in the morning or GTFO.) Plus! Jen and Patrick talk about the Deluxe Edition of the White album featuring “I Love the USA”, a remix of “Jacked Up” and two new songs! Man, that I Love the USA is a weird song, huh? Ripping guitar solo though.

25 - Mallrats with Joe Gehart
Jen and Patrick close out their series of conversations about movies-with-Weezer-songs-on-the-soundtrack with the 1995 classic: Mallrats. True to tradition, they are joined by one of their friends -- actor and comedian Joe Gehart -- to sort through all the casual 90s misogyny. They discuss their own hometown malls, whether we could tell which was the real nipple, and the best practices for actually getting a gerbil (or hamster or mouse) up your butt. PLUS, Joe’s got a solution for homelessness in Los Angeles and everyone loves Jay and Silent Bob. Snoogans.

24 - Weezer 2000
First thing’s first: Pinkerton has gone platinum! After heaping praise on the little record that could, Jen and Patrick turn their attention to the difficult task of making 10-song playlists from the 2000s. That’s Green, Maladroit, Make Believe, Red, Raditude, Hurley, boiled down into one Weezer-record sized playlist. How’d they do? Are their lists too similar? PLUS, they both have surprises for each other and, in turn, for you!
75 minutes | 4 years ago
23 - The Relationship and “I Love the USA”
Jen and Patrick are beset on all sides by maladies! Patrick’s getting over a cold and Jen’s got a little bit of a tummy ache. Plus, she’s suffering from some weekend jet-jag and gradually gets more sleepy as the show progresses. But there are topics to discuss! Topics like Brian Bell’s side project, The Relationship, and their 2009 eponymous (that’s a synonym for “self titled,” but has a different meaning than “titular”) record. It’s kind of a snooze! Afterwards Jen and Patrick move on to the almost entirely-nonsense driven new Weezer single “I Love the USA.” At least there’s a bitchin’ guitar solo in there, right?

22 - Meet the Deedles
Back in 1999, the first -- and to date, only -- Homie song was released. Sure, the song may have been buried behind two other credits songs at the end of Disney’s failed foray into the goofy surfer buddy comedy genre, Meet the Deedles staring Paul Walker and Steve Van Wormer. But no reference to Weezer is too obscure for My Name is Weezer hosts Jen and Patrick, and no Fast and Furious reference too obscure for their friend, and hilarious comedian, Fadl Saadi. Find out if any of them are monkey experts and just how many times Patrick will let them say “p-dog.”

21 - Weezerton at the Huntington Beach Beer Festival
It’s time for adventures in the sorta-suburbs as Jen and Patrick take the 5 freeway down to Huntington Beach for the Rockstar Beer Festival, featuring beer (obviously) and Weezer tribute band - Weezerton. This episode is not for the faint of heart as there’s honest-to-God dog vomiting on it. Plus, Jen and Patrick discuss their plans for their five-year anniversary show (#WeaselBat) and their experiences with the outdoor festivals of their collective youths. So grab a strawberry meade or a macadamia nut stout, get ready to mosh with Dogder Man: we’re seeing Weezerton!
64 minutes | 5 years ago
20 - Family Dinner
After an upsetting conversation about slurping, Jen and Patrick slurp some ramen and catch up on life, love and Weezer. Between slurps, they discuss this weekend’s Weezerton concert (again), Pokemon Go (also again) and lines from movies that just aren’t jokes. Plus, see what happens when two people realize that they’re having a regular-ass conversation on mic. It’s not called gyNICEstics! #Slurping
74 minutes | 5 years ago
19 - Blink 182’s “California”
LA-10s Jen and Patrick apply their expertise of all things Weezer to clown princes of 90’s pop punk, Blink 182. It’s clean production, catchy choruses and an avalanche stupid jokes (and not just from your hosts). Plus, Patrick flashes back to high school for a follow-up on that story of teenage love and heartbreak that started in the Green episode.
61 minutes | 5 years ago
18 - Smash Mouth Live at The Grove
On July 20th, 2016, Smash Mouth played a free show at The Grove shopping center in Los Angeles. What does that have to do with Weezer? Jen and Patrick aren’t quite sure, but it sounds like an ironic good time, right? SomeBODY could have told them that it’s not a whole lot of fun to see four washed-up rockers playing hits from 30 years ago. (All comparisons to Weezer, however obvious, are ignored.) Things get weird when Patrick thinks Jen’s toes might have tongues and autocorrect insists on screaming “SMASHMOUTH.” Plus, remember The Monkees? Rivers Cuomo wrote a song for them -- again, yes in 2016 -- called “She Makes Me Laugh” and your hosts discuss the relative merits of good, clean, poppy fun.
112 minutes | 5 years ago
17 - Angus
There are no surprises left in the world: Ryan Mogge crashes the ‘cast to help bonehead Weezer fans Jen and Patrick talk about Angus, the movie featuring a miserable fat teen and at least one (arguably two) Weezer songs. The discuss bullying and social strata in their own high school experiences before shouting about who among them is the worst feminist. Plus, “it’d be weird if you fucked your own grandpa” and an answer to the question “what would you do if you kissed someone and their mouth tasted like a candle?”
85 minutes | 5 years ago
16 - Not Alone - Rivers Cuomo & Friends Live at Fingerprints
Jen and Patrick are back, and like any other pair of human beings, they have to talk about Pokemon Go before they’re allowed to discuss anything else. But then it’s right down to the bizarre “Not Alone” DVD and it’s somehow-even-more-bizarre special features. Plus your hosts discuss baseball, guns and bald eagles - making this the informal My Name is Weezer Summer Spectacular!
