"Extremeanderings" is a newly minted portmanteau used to describe meandering conversations
devoted to the history of the rock band Extreme. It is also the unofficial title of Episode #7 of
the Podster Casters. We begin with the "Cold Opining" segment, where Sycamore Smith bestows
a dubious honor upon Extreme's 1991 mega-hit "More Than Words." From there, Sycamore
and co-host Matt Bullock discuss Extreme's long career, from 80s inception to '08 reunion.
Along the way, there are cameo appearances by some of the usual suspects (namely, The Beatles,
Nirvana, and Van Halen). The show is capped off by a "Gramophone Picnic" segment featuring
the legendary pedal-steel guitarist Speedy West.
