Very special episode of Dad Bod Rap Pod this week, the first on our new home, Open Mike Eagle’s Stony Island Audio which is part of the illustrious Starburns Industries umbrella. We’re excited about this new chapter for the show and to celebrate we switched a few things up. We have new artwork by Arthur Banach, a new introduction by the legendary hip-hop announcer Don Newkirk, and we have a great interview with a major artist whose music has been the soundtrack of our lives. We were lucky to speak this week with DJ Shadow, the revolutionary producer who has worked with elite MCs, collaborated with the top DJs in the game, and helped usher in a new wave of appreciation for instrumental hip-hop in the mid-90’s with his stellar debut album Endtroducing…. We are huge fans of Shadow’s work and this interview is an in-depth look into his mindset in 2020, a look back at some standout moments form past albums, and a showcase for his thoughtful, almost poetic way of answering questions. We’re very proud of the interview and hope you enjoy it.
