Randall Libero on podcasting, streaming and Marilyn Monroe
This episode we have Randall Libero whose introduction speaks for itself. For starters, he is an Executive Producer at VoiceAmerica. We met on LinkedIn and he was super interested in my content, I had a few consultations with him and took it to the road. Later I invited him to be a guest on the show because the information he gave me was smack dab in the vein of the second season's topic of culture from the lens of technology.
Visiting workplace and community questions that were answered for us
DEI isn’t a new thing, but it is in its trial period. Tied to culture season 2 episode 4 brings us a guest who was looking for a new way to look at the topic if DEI and found it in the sub-group of white affinity. Depending on your ethnic or cultural upbringing there may be a difference in opinion from the extreme path of the recent past. We now have the luxury move forward with positive outlooks. The episode will take all the serious elements of DEI that could be laid bare but are heightened here in a very specific way.

DIY Music for the post-modern generation
Ray Stevens III joins us to talk about his music career and many years in the skateboarding industry. Both music and skateboarding are part of modern culture. Ray is a punk-rock musician who has a superbly-refreshing take on music. I don't think I have met someone as easy to get along with as Ray in quite a long time. Perhaps that is why he has so many high-level friends like Steve Cabellero, Tony Alva and Steve Alba who are also skateboarders and musicians. He's played in too many bands to name over the years. His current focus is on the popular bay area band RS2 Solid Sound. Join the party as we talk about beers, skateboarding, friendship, and our all-time heroes.
