    Robert Perry runs one of Philadelphia's most beloved bar/restaurants, South Street's Tattooed Mom (aka Tmoms). And in this unprecedented moment, I talk with Robert not only about challenges of fears of being a small business owner in the age of COVID-19, but about his story, about how Tmoms has become the culture center and community space it has over the last 23 years, and about the ever-changing role of one of Philly's most iconic streets!

The Podcast We Need

A fantastic podcast brimming with local pride that I feel if more people listened to we could have even more art and better urbanization in the city. Each interview helps to highlight people who deserve highlighting and allows for a life long local to learn about other locals making their mark on the city. Highly recommend to anyone really, not just Philly people, because each episode is really able to go above that and just be super insightful.
