    SPOKE with Robert Galluzzo and Jennifer Finch (side B)

    This is the "side B" to last week's episode featuring filmmaker Robert Galluzzo and L7's Jennifer Finch. 



    This week's episode of SPOKE features guests Jennifer Finch (L7) and filmmaker Robert Galluzzo. We discuss the cassette tape culture and the art of the mixtape—inspired by Galluzzo's brand new film "Analog Love"—which, you guessed it, explores just that. It's a fascinating documentary that includes insights from Finch, Henry Rollins, the late Kim Shattuck (The Muffs), Money Mark (Beastie Boys) and many more. This is the second of a 2 part episode.

Great listen!

This is a great listen - if you’re old it probably fills in some blanks if you’re young- get with it kid!! Thank you Scott! And all you little peens go watch Salad Days and Creem!

Platform for abusers? No thank.

Giving Rob G., a known harasser of women who used his platform of power to take advantage of them, a platform is gross. Used to dig the show but no thanks. Don’t need that guy telling me how to make a mixtape.
