    Today we are joined by Will Penny! I've been wanting to have Will on the podcast for a while now so when I saw him at Bamboo Club's Hardcore Markteplace I sat down with him for a short chat. Will has an interesting background - he's an attorney by day and artist by night, similarly living the alter ego lifestyle of the comic book characters that inspire his art and books! On this episode, we learn about his artistic origin, what inspires his creativity and what's in store for the future of his work!

    182 Ross Aliotti and Jared Allen

    On this episode we chat with one of our Desert Oasis Room regulars, Ross the "Tiki Boss" Aliotti and our new friend Jared Allen! This was recorded on Halloween weekend and so we intended to record an episode filled with ghost stories but as the way many conversations go, we ended up wandering into other fun topics instead. Never the less, we bring you along for the chaos!

Larry king of tiki

This is the best tiki podcast and gets in depth interviews with all the interesting personalities in the tiki and Polynesian pop world. Very entertaining.

Fantastic show

As a retail district manager, I am constantly driving in my car and this show is a lifesaver! Adrian is so down to Earth and easy going that I almost feel like I want to hug him like a friend if I were to meet him! Whether he is talking about Tiki, his kids, his cat, his favorite hamburger joint, whatever- he is able to make conversation interesting again. Love this podcast!

Become a tiki insider

Some episodes are straightforward interviews (such as the Jeff Berry episode), others are more "hangout with friends". Production values are much better after about episode 15. Very interesting stories and gets tiki fans all the inside info they are looking for.
