Sons of the Double Cheeseburger
By Brandon and Kevin Woosley
Part check-in, part current event discussion, part free-associative absurdity, Sons of the Double Cheeseburger is a semi-regular eavesdrop on the relationship of brothers Kevin and Brandon Woosley. Sometimes it's comfort food, sometimes it's more grisly than that. You'll figure out which is which.
Live in Chicago!

On Second Thought...(non-Spotify Version)
