Episode 96- 2019 Thanksgiving Special

Every year we try to do a special episode for Thanksgiving and this year we landed on the theme of stories. We are all storytellers in some regard, and each DBRP co-host picked a song to tell a personal story about. Nate talks about his family through the lens of Action Bronson’s “9-24-11,” Dave reminisces about a particularly fruitful time in his career by discussing Lord Shafiq’s “My Mic Is On Fire,” and Demone recounts a personal and somewhat tragic tale revolving around Aceyalone’s “Book Of Human Language.” We are very grateful for all of our listeners, the community that has formed around the show, and the artists and writers who have joined us as guest. Happy Thanksgiving from the Dad Bod Rap Pod family to yours.

Episode 95- Beans Interview

This week we speak to Beans, one of the most original and unique MC/producers in hip-hop. I never do this but I am actually going to quote his own description of himself since it is so perfect:

Accomplished abstract poet. Early architect of electronic-infused beatscapes. Founding ex- member of legendary left-field rap act Anti-Pop Consortium

The interview takes a few unexpected turns, and he actually recommends some amazing music you may not be familiar with. Check out his new album and book Ace Balthazar here:
