leempierce ,

the guests they manage to find are amazing

i love people who are passionate about stuff, even random stuff, so i was excited to try out this podcast. it did not disappoint. The range of guests is insane--they've had U-God's son from Wu-Tang and an actor from the Irishmen along with a bunch of people I've never heard of but who are still really interesting. personally i'd like to see more teachers on the show; we are creatives too!!!
