Rebel Radio is brought to you in partnership with EDM.com The Art of Selling Without Selling Out. Rebel Radio shines a light on cultural pioneers and their influences, reflecting on the roots and future of underground culture. We engage the influencers who define what we wear, watch, listen to, and play with — and how we spend our spare time and loose change — and explore what it means to be a creative entrepreneur today. Our weekly interview show explores the journeys of those who do it best in all areas of youth culture. We learn how they stay creative in the face of relentless distract and setbacks. How they make something where previously nothing existed, how they find inspiration and influence, as well as how they inspire and influence others, and what it takes to create movements.

    Beth Bowen: No fear

    Beth Bowen: No fear

    Beth Bowen is an exciting new artist. Just a couple years into her career, her work has already been shown in the Louvre, Cannes Film Festival, and a growing list of galleries and collectors' homes. She's also a mom of four and a former reality TV actress.

    What stands out about Beth is her lack of fear, or maybe her unwillingness to let fear hold her back. "I have nothing to lose" seems to be her mantra, and it's working.

    Enjoy our interview and then hit up http://bethbowenart.com or https://www.instagram.com/guerillaone/ to buy a piece of Beth's art while you can still afford it.

    Bagel: It's all flow and style

    Bagel: It's all flow and style

    And another one in partnership with Guerilla One, co-hosted by Eddie Donaldson.

    Bagel is a Venice legend — documenting skate, surf, and street culture from the inside as a local carrying around his camera since the 80s.

    We had our conversation on the patio at The Rose Venice, one of the best food spots in the new Venice, and talked about music, art, business, and how this tiny little town of three square miles that isn't even a city has had such a massive impact on global culture. It's a special place and Bagel has been doing his part to document the people and places that make it so amazing.

    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.

    Daddy Kev: Brick by Brick

    Daddy Kev: Brick by Brick

    Daddy Kev is the homie from way back.

    He's also one of the leaders of the LA beat scene and part of the reason we're bumping cats like Flying Lotus and Thundercat. He's the founder of Alpha Pup Distribution and the new club night Scenario, which replaced the longtime favorite Low End Theory.

    Kev schools us on how he's trying to make the industry safe for artists and at the same time build a dynasty that he can pass on to his kids. He also puts us up on some fresh new music.

    Peep game.

    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.

    And check out Stage Pilot's upcoming experiences here: https://stagepilot.live

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!
