This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by The Nerdist's very own Matt Mira and The Aquabats' Ian Fowles to geek out on guitars - particularly of the left-handed variety. As possessors of the "hand of the devil," they talk about the discrimination against southpaw guitar players and why righties get to have all the fun. Matt opens up about his guitar obsession and ongoing quest to get his dream Burns Bison guitar with "mad dog." Other topics include luthiering and repairs, eBay guitar shopping politics, the ABCs of Boston rock and the "Ivory Shaft." Check out Matt on SModCo's new "Talk Salad and Scrambled Eggs" podcast, among many others, and Ian on "The Aquabats! Super Show!"
