Guest - Cheech Marin & Crew - S4 E11


We interviewed Cheech Marin! You guys, never would we have thought this podcast journey would lead us to an interview like this. If you do not know who he is (wow, but that's okay), he is an actor, comedian and the largest collector of Chicano Art. Known for his famous Cheech & Chong movies, voice acting, Desperado, etc, he also is a huge advocate for Chicano Artists. We got to sit down with him and talk about his new documentary "The Cheech" and his love for art. In addition to that we talked with El Dusty, who scored the film as well as the Director, DP, Producers and Production Managers. We had great chats with everyone. Take a listen and thank you so much fo the Art Museum of South Texas for inviting us to participate.

The Locals List (Part 2) - S4 E10

This is a continuation of our previous episode! There were so many people we interviewed and we wanted to add more to a second episode. So here it is! The show notes below are from the previous episode but tell you everything you need to know. 

We did a LIVE PODCAST! This episode is a little different. As we've mentioned in some previous episodes, we won Best Podcast in a big local publication - The Bend Magazine. Every year they ask the public to vote for their favorites in "The Locals List". The people in our hometown of Corpus Christi voted and that means the world to us. So we attended the event and did a LIVE Podcast. It was so much fun and definitely not what we expected. We honestly had no idea what to expect, but we did it and we had a blast. Even if you do not live in our hometown (most of you don't), you'll benefit from what these guests have to say. We asked them what they love about their city AND what do they say to those people who claim there is "Nothing to do in my hometown". The answers were all great. 

So take a listen and let us know what you think!
