On today's episode I talk to musician and TV writer Clay Tarver.
Clay first came to prominence as the co-founder and lead guitarist
of the Boston hard rock/punk band Bullet LaVolta in the late 1980s.
They recorded a few records for Taang!, RCA, and Matador Records
before disbanding in 1991. He then formed Chavez with Matt Sweeney,
Scott Marshall and James Lo, and they released two incredible
albums and an EP on Matador. As Chavez was waning, Clay's writing

SIlicon Valley. His directorial film debut Vacation Friends with
John Cena, Lil Rel Howery, and Yvonne Orji will be released this
