Episode 180 -  The Swellers had a hell of a career.  An underground skate punk band with a knack for providing the perfect pop-punk hooks at the perfect time - they got signed to Fall Out Boy's Fueled By Ramen label and went on tour with Paramore at their peak.  But once the band started being told to tone it down with the "tweeting about pooping" and other antics - they decided to part ways - also at their peak.  Nick Diener - frontman of The Swellers and now acclaimed producer joins the show to talk about what went right, what went wrong, his new hardcore band Wounded Touch, and if the Swellers might ever come back.
