Chris Payne is the author of the book Where Are Your Boys Tonight? The Oral History of Emo's Mainstream Explosion - you will probably not be shocked to hear that this book is VERY heavy on New Jersey content.

On this week's show we ask a simple question: "What's the dumbest/weirdest/most inexplicable stuff to be found on New Jersey Craig's List right now?"

A recent article revealed the existence of a secret super clean bathroom in the well known NYC nightmare commuter hub, Port Authority. Being that Port Authority is a place MANY North Jersey residents know well and have true hatred/fear for, we figured this was a perfect excuse to look not just at the secret bathroom of Port Authority, but the many …

Mike D has recently read up on some of the historical roots of the legends surrounding the New Jersey Devil, the Garden State's most infamous legend. How was Benjamin Franklin involved? Is this all just the hundreds year old result of a smear job campaign directed to one unfortunately targeted family? Were almanacs the fanzines of their day? Get bo…

This episode has some technical disasters. Broken headphones, weird audio, and even right now I'm posting it from the Denver airport where my flight has been delayed over five hours. And that's all fitting because we talk about NJ's greatest disasters throughout this thrilling piece of audio. We are the only podcast on earth that can have a surpris…

New Jersey is a place of chaos. St. Patrick's Day is a holiday of chaos. New Jersey also has a lot of residents of Irish descent.

You will also not be shocked to hear this one talks a lot about Hobo…

Politics in New Jersey is becoming must see. We're currently embroiled in the "Tammy Murphy versus Andy Kim" Senate primary that's getting nastier by the day. Soon we'll have the governor's race, where Steve Fulop, Ras Baraka, and Steve Sweeney have already joined, with more rumored to be eyeing the prize. It's a crazy time. That made me think: how…

You'd think if you have Joe Steinhardt from Don Giovanni Records and Marissa Paternoster of Noun and Screaming Females, you might talk a lot about their legendary impact on New Brunswick's basement scene. Or at the very least about their great new graphic novel, Merriment. Nope. This is New Jersey is the World, so we're talking about the Northeast …

Last week it was announced that the World Cup Finals are coming to New Jersey in a couple years. This is a huge deal. Like, more than many American sports fans might even realize. Mike D and Chris get together to discuss the impact, how it happened, all the ways we hope it goes right, and the many ways we assume it could go wrong. What happens when…

I didn't set out to create controversy. The idea felt simple. "Hey, we talk about Jersey relentlessly on this show, let's go through the list and see which towns we as a collective have and haven't actually been to." I thought it would be basic: Exhaust ourselves reading the list of New Jersey town names and everyone says yes or no and we probably …

Don Fanelli, the Jersey Dude Who Loves Jersey Food, is back! Not just on the podcast, but Don was also recently back in New Jersey, and he visited the legendary Rutt's Hut to try their duck.

Keith moved to Montclair from Brooklyn six years ago. He considers himself a Montclair guy.

Today we discuss all the things we think might happen in and around New Jersey in 2024, so that we might build a bingo board for your enjoyment throughout the year. Some of them are very chattered about political moves we expect people to make, for example. But in typical NJITW fashion, our predictions get progressively more off the rails and don't…

Guys, this is crazy. We set up a whole bunch of police scanners and short wave radios last night, and we were able to record Santa's communication with local authorities as he flew around above New Jersey delivering presents last night.

This episode is a loving tribute to the iconic, wild west television station many of us grew up with: Channel 9. If you were in the New York media market, you were exposed to the weirdness of this TV station, much of which originated out of Secaucus, NJ.

This week, Don Fanelli and myself had the pleasure of interviewing Peter Candia, a writer and editor at the New Jersey Digest. We set out to talk about his list of the 40 best pizzas in the state, but we never got there. Mostly because him and Don have a longstanding bromance and took off running. From restaurant etiquette, to new school fancy plac…

In this very idiotic high concept episode, we pre-suppose the not at all important question: "If New Jersey was in fact a prepared dish cooked in a kitchen instead of a state, which towns would be the ESSENTIAL ingredients?" We had a lot of fun sorting this out but also we imagine there are going to be people telling us we got it wrong. We can't wa…

Newark Airport is a center of gravity for this entire state. Which leads us to ask: What do we hate about EWR? What are the good aspects? Are there any?

On this week's show, we look at a brief history of Halloween, both overall and in relation to New Jersey in general. But as Mike D predicted, this really becomes an avenue to go down 145 rabbit holes and also follow 3,000 tangents. It is a fun, rambly mess in the best way. LET'S SAVE MISCHIEF NIGHT!

It's Geth and Bonadooch this week, checking in with each other about how summer has gone and what they hope to do in the final days of the season.

The town of West Orange is fining Bagels by Jarrett over $1,000 a day for having window shades. This has created a ton of chatter in the New Jersey online world, ranging from "Just put the window shades up," on one end all the way to "This represents authoritarianism and we must rally behind our beloved bagel shop that barely even serves bagels." I…

Geth recently had the chance to bring his four year old son to the Land of Make Believe, an amusement park he hasn't been to in over 35 years. It's located in the small Warren County town of Hope, which we assume was named as such because people really felt like they needed it. First things first - the Land of Make Believe RULES and is worth your t…

Gethard is camping somewhere in the hinterlands of northwest Jersey, so Mike D takes the helm this week! He sat down with Mark Bucci from the band Brewster.

I first came to know of Wheeler Antabanez when he ran an incredible website about the Bin, the haunted asylum in the hills of West Essex County that was a huge part of my high school lore. Then over the years we became part of the same Weird NJ inner circles, and I've long admired his obsession with going to the exact types of places in New Jersey …

It's the best time of the month, everyone: when all of the creators from NJITW get together and listen to *your* voicemails.
