Here is my final podcast of 2014 and I figured who better to have in the room then two of the most active and open individuals who have intrigued me on social media. Michael Barnes is host of Melting Pot on KPFK and also a Lecturer at CSU Long Beach. This man knows his music! Novena Carmel is small bundle of positive energy and member of musical group Wallpaper. Together we talk about the events of that shaped and impacted 2014 as well as look head to 2105.

We talk Ferguson, Eric Garner, Iggy Azalea, race, Malaysian Airlines, Robin Williams, mental health,  music and even compare President Obama to a dj. We also break down Black Messiah and our favorite records of the year. Hope you enjoy! This one is easily one of my faves!

Last night before hitting the stage with Miles Bonny I found myself at a White Castle having an interesting conversation with the brother in regards to being an artist and how to develop his brand. The convo was so interesting I had to pull out my soundcloud app and hit record. His story is very interesting and had to be shared. He is one of the most talented performers I know and who is open with his frustration and struggles.  Take a listen and let me know what you think. Follow him on twitter at @MilesBonny!
