In the first episode of "The Front Lounge with KONGOS" the guys discuss why they're doing a podcast, what they've been up to, music, the music business, reminisce about early van touring days, the new BURL AD converter they bought, discuss how much they hate using social media and talk about how disorienting tour life can be.
