    Guerin Swing: You don't have to pick a lane

    Guerin Swing: You don't have to pick a lane

    Back with my co-host Eddie Donaldson of Guerilla One, I sat down with Guerin Swing, talented artist / interior designer and longtime fixture in LA's nightlife and celebrity culture.

    Man, this dude has some stories! House of Pain, Pam and Tommy, graffiti battles — we cover a lot of ground. What I found most interesting is the way Guerin connects all of these different worlds, brings beauty and spirituality into the grimier parts of culture.

    Dig in.

    Stage Pilot founder Chris Korbey: VIP experiences, in-person and online

    Stage Pilot founder Chris Korbey: VIP experiences, in-person and online

    The Pandemic changed everything.

    It meant the end of some companies, the beginning of others, and for still others — a pivot, or multiple pivots. Perhaps no industry was reshaped more than live entertainment. In many ways, we still haven't reached the other side, as performers, promoters, technologists, and fans continue to reevaluate how they're going to behave, with a mix of in-person and virtual experiences.

    Chris Korbey's Stage Pilot is one of the many companies who had to / got to rethink what business they're in. The asked themselves, "what would a VIP experience look like with no venue? So we started going to artists and saying, like, what can you not do on stage? Like, what is the thing you've always wanted to do?"

    Let's dig-in to Chris's journey and how he's building a team that's prepared to take on whatever the future brings us.

    Artist Republik founder Nick Cianfaglione: The Power of All-In

    Artist Republik founder Nick Cianfaglione: The Power of All-In

    Artist Republik is out to democratize music distribution and marketing, part of the wave of companies supporting the idea of a "middle class" artist through a combination of technology tools and a mindset of transparency and empowerment.

    Founder and CEO Nick Cianfaglione gives us a bit of insight into his vision, as well as the tireless work ethic and optimism it takes to fight it out in the digital music business. He's still in his early 20s, so the tireless part should be easy, but he also brings the experience of an entrepreneur who has already founded multiple companies — from clothing to concert promotion and music marketing.

    Check it out to hear what he learned from those early efforts and how he keep his team motivated and engaged.

My fave culture interview show

It’s kind of like a mashup between how I built this, and freakonomics. Very smart and interesting interview style tickets behind the scenes and under the hood and brings fresh perspective any topic

Be A Rebel

Josh (host of the podcast) is a friend, but I wouldn't be saying this if I didn't truly believe it :: With Rebel Radio, you are getting something that you won't get anywhere else. I've been involved with Verge Culture for many years, and with that backing me up, I can say that there are really no other podcasts that cross into as many different spheres of lifestyle and marketing than this one. In order to do this, you have to have lived through a life of subculture and urban arts, and Josh Levine has done so. Experience counts for so much, and the guests of this podcast have singularly unique experiences that we can all benefit from hearing about. Then go out there and have your own!
