Jars of Clay Performs Live
After a long hiatus, we're happy to announce the RELEVANT Studio Sessions are back, this week featuring a live performance by the legendary Jars of Clay! The veteran band came through our studio to play a few songs from their new album Inland, and we've got 2 of those performances on this week's show. Also, we play a "fantasy showdown" game with a listener, do some beatboxing and dig into 2 Chainz's cookbook (yup, you read that one right). It's a very spooky Friday the 13th edition of the podcast...and you've been warned.
