The Return of Juan: A Conversation about Podcasts, Books and Music



Recommended Listening

This episode is a little different. A few days ago I invited Juan back on the show to talk about his favorite podcasts, music and books but we ended up talking about that and everything under the sun.



What you’re about to hear is take two. In the first take we started off great and then somehow we ended up in the super dark political place. It didn’t even make sense to publish it, I just made a new clip as we were talking and started from there.

Please enjoy.

Jeremiah Moss talks Vanishing New York: How a Great City Lost Its Soul



jeremiah moss


Today’s guest on the show is Jeremiah Moss, author of Vanishing New York: How a Great City Lost Its Soul. We met up in Tompkins Square park to talk about the suburbanization of New York, the importance of policy, monoculture, Jane Jacobs, eminent domain, the impact of the High Line, Coney Island, neoliberalism, poor doors, colonial myopia and hyper-gentrification. I think it is safe to say that you should listen to this episode, twice. Enjoy.

‘Rock Rubber 45s’ Q&A with Bobbito Garcia a.k.a. Kool Bob Love

The other day I headed to the Metrograph Theater in the Lower East Side to catch the premiere of Rock Rubber 45s, an autobiographical documentary by Bobbito Garcia aka Kool Bob Love. I’m not a film critic but I will say this, I friggin’ love it. I laughed a lot, had a ton of nostalgic moments plus I learn a ton of stuff about Bob that I did now know.

After the film, Bob and I kicked it for a few but he was gracious to give us access to record the Q&A after the movie.

It’s a documentary so I personally don’t think there are any spoilers or spoiler alerts because it’s info that supports the film. To be honest, it a great Q&A but nothing is going to beat actually seeing the film and listening to the music. Theres is a lot of excellent music in the film, that’s no surprise. It’s Bobbito!

Anyway, I’m outta here… enjoy!
