EPISODE 72: KAREN SHANER (MY MOM)

My Mom and Dad were back in town this week so here’s Part 2 of our conversation about her life history (you can hear our first one back on Episode 46). I let her get VERY specific this time around, so we only cover about 5 years of her life, but it was a huge transitional phase. We discuss my parents’ wedding, moving to San Antonio, and the birth of your favorite rapper.

EPISODE 71: JOHNNY POLYGON

Been 3 years since I last sat down and spoke with Johnny Polygon. Not sure why I waited so long, as we always seem to have a great time shooting the shit. Those of you that’ve been around a while will remember him from the other show we used to do, and those of you who haven’t will love his charm, wit, and easy demeanor. This convo was a bit of a break from the norm. Rather than delving too deep into Johnny’s personal history, we do a lot of bullshitting, meandering down long tangents, and musing about life, which makes us realize we’re a whole lot alike. Hear him talk about his father’s recent passing, getting the taste of success we all chase very early in his career, and being the Justin Beiber of Tulsa, OK.

EPISODE 70: PELL

You guys are going to love this dude. Pell got brought to my attention by last week’s guest (Dream Panther), then I got a serendipitous text from our dude Caleb Stone saying Pell was interested in doing the show. Have to admit, I was sleeping. Checked out his music and videos and they’re great. He effortlessly transitions between rapping and swinging with wisdom beyond his years. We talk to him about growing up in New Orleans, having to leave after the hurricane, and we relate to eachother in our college dorm room rap antics.

DREAM PANTHER – CHUTES AND THE LADDER

Dream Panther performs his self-produced song “Chutes and the Ladder” live at Cosmic Zoo studio after a long conversation with Intuition on the Kinda Neat podcast (be sure to stick around for the secret 2nd song).

EPISODE 69: DREAM PANTHER

Dream Panther is a name I’ve been hearing from the mouths of LA musicians-in-the-know for a long time now. Every few months I visit his Soundcloud or Bandcamp page and end up leaving his music on repeat for hours each time. It’s dreamy electronic pop music with easily digestible lyrics that sets the mood for chillin’. He was a complete mystery to me though…I’d never seen him perform, rarely saw his name on show flyers, had actually never even seen a picture of him. Recently I started seeing his name popping up on big music sites due to his familial connection to IloveMakonnen (they’re cousins), and figured I’d try to crack the case of the mysterious gent. We talk about growing up in Mid-City Los Angeles, the culture shock of moving to a nearly all white school in Orange County, and buying a warehouse so he could have a place to perform.

LAKUTIS – ANIMAL

Lakutis performs “Animal” live at  Cosmic Zoo studio after a long conversation with Intuition on the Kinda Neat podcast.

EPIDODE 68: LAKUTIS

This week we talked to Washington Heights, NY native Aleksey Weintraub, better known as Lakutis. The first time I saw him perform at Los Globos he was on stage shirtless, hair covering his face, screaming like a rap game Danzig, and the catchy dark pop hook for “Body Scream” caught my ear. This year’s 3 Seashells release finds him experimenting on the outskirts of hip hop in a dark, but party friendly world. We talk about growing up in New York in a one parent household, serendipitously falling into rapping, and trying to make a song he won’t hate when it’s done

EPISODE 67: JENSEN KARP

We’re finally back and deeply apologetic about being gone for a month.  This week we sat down with a gentleman who’s gotten brought up on probably 3 of the last 4 podcasts, Jensen Karp.  Jensen was signed as a rapper at the tender age of 13 and maneuvered his way through the music industry as Hot Karl through his early 20’s.  Now he’s a prolific writer, podcaster, comedian, curater, manager, and all around hustler.  We talk to him about getting talent scouted at a bar mitzvah, finding out he has brain tumors, and Mack 1o showing up to his doorstep with a briefcase full of money.
