Comedian Scott Aukerman and actor Adam Scott have abandoned their new Red Hot Chili Peppers podcast R U Talkin’ RHCP RE: ME after one episode.
Earlier this month, Aukerman and Scott launched R U Talkin' RHCP RE: ME, a podcast series which Aukerman described as a "comprehensive and encyclopedic compendium of all things Red Hot Chili Peppers."
R U Talkin' RHCP RE: ME follows on from Aukerman and Scott's 2018 podcast series R U Talkin’ R.E.M. RE: ME? about R.E.M., and U Talkin’ U2 To Me?, which is focused around U2.
Both the previous podcast series about R.E.M. and U2 saw the hosts unpack one album in each episode, however, in the first episode of their Chili Peppers-themed series, they spoke about two of the band's albums - their 1984 self-titled debut and 1985's Freaky Styley.
The second episode of the Red Hot Chili Peppers podcast series arrived last week (15 July), but appeared with the title "77", which is Talking Heads' 1977 debut LP. The episode begins with Aukerman and Scott discussing RHCP's 1987 album The Uplift Mofo Party Plan, but they soon talk about how they wish they'd picked Talking Heads instead, leading them to discuss their debut LP 77 and pivot the entire podcast series to Talking Heads instead.
