On today’s show, BTR’s own DJ J Dayz joins us to talk about his experience on the Vans Warped Tour which is approaching its third decade bringing pop punk to the masses.

And after the promotional air raid, ultramarathoner and star of the documentary Running the Sahara, Charlie Engle made a marvelous fifth place finish in the intimidating Badwater 2013 race. In his interview with BTR’s Tanya Silverman, Engle reflects on his release from prison in June for a 2010 conviction of mortgage fraud and the time left ahead of him in the sport.

Plus, we chat with Emma Nolan about her guide to traveling off the beaten path in Europe that ran on the site earlier during Touring Week.
