Episode 220: Justin & Melissa Beck


Our first ever married couple, Glassjaw guitarist Justin Beck and former Real World cast member Melissa Beck, came by Going Off Track to discuss their mutual love of hardcore and nineties R&B. We also talk about the origins of Justin’s pioneering merchandising company Merch Direct, near fights on the Warped Tour, seafood and Melissa’s very outspoken opinions on reality television (which anyone who follows her on Twitter should be well acquainted with). “I tried out for the Real World as a person who loved the show and watched every single episode,” she admits at one point. “Having done it and having an understanding that some people don’t have, I like to watch [current reality shows] for that reason.” If you’re interested in details about the upcoming Glassjaw record this is NOT the podcast for you, but if you’d like to learn more about the inner workings of a relationship with two of Long Island’s most interesting residents, you’ll love this very special episode.
