This 1992 album is celebrated as one of the best of the era but we look at the dysfunctional, toxic relationships between the five band members, and we find that the pressures of the music business, touring, and getting older, led to internal conflicts that made it harder for Faith No More to just be a group of goofy weirdos.

In the WREK production studio, preparing to record a Consilience.
Once a week, Pete Ludovice and I go into the WREK production studio (smaller than the broadcast studio but contains all the same equipment for recording) and record a conversation about whatever is on our mind at that moment. Those recordings become Consilience with Pete and Charlie, which is scattered across the web on this site, Tumblr, Libsyn, iTunes, and other podcast aggregators.
We record in half-hour chunks. We try to stay within our defined topic, i.e. the intersection of science and the humanities, but often we stretch the definition of “intersection” (and, to be honest, of “science” and “humanities”).
