Critic Rating

This is the story of the band that almost was. You won’t hear what this band sounds like. You won’t even learn their name. But you know this band, even if you don’t. Even if it Kills Me is a narrative documentary podcast, chronicling the lives of Jon, Ryan, Mac and Pete as they set out across the country and try to make it as rockstars in the bygone era of the ‘00s.

"Even If It Kills Me is just one example of what it’s like to chase that fame and it isn’t just for those with a soft spot for the early 2000s scene. This is for anyone who’s dared to chase a dream, stood on the edge of greatness, and felt the magnetic pull of potential success slip through their fingers."
