We're having a lot of fun with Diffuser Radio and we're excited to unveil Episode 003 featuring one of our favorite garage rock duos, Los Angeles' the Bots.

Chatting with brothers Makaiah and Anaiah Lei outside of Rough Trade -- New York City's biggest record store -- we dive into their new album, Pink Palms, what it was like filming a music video with The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus and why they love vinyl so much.

Ahead of the interview, though, we host a roundtable with Diffuser Senior Editor Tim Karan and columnists Chris Kissel and James Stafford about the physical side of music. Does the future of the music industry need a physical product? It's a simple question to ask, but not an easy one to answer.

You can listen to the episode below via Soundcloud, or subscribe to Diffuser Radio at iTunes:

We hope you're enjoying our new podcast series as much as we are. Episode 004 will feature a Record Store Day-focused roundtable and an exclusive chat with the beautiful Janet Devlin.

With just three episodes into the new podcast, Diffuser Radio is still evolving. Do you want us to cover a specific topic or event in a future roundtable? Who do you want us to interview on the next episode? Let us know in the comments section and we’ll do everything we can to make it happen.

Thank you for reading, thank you for downloading, thank you for listening.
