Meet My Good Friend

This is a podcast where I interview random people that I meet to prove that everyone has a story to tell. It's StoryCorps + Humans of New York, I guess. So far I've met an IT guy, a jewelery merchandiser, a crazy conspiracy theorist, a hippie chick, a hairdresser, an astronomer, a stand-up comedian, and a traveling insurance adjuster. Who will I meet next?

This week you get to meet my good friend Amanda Lee. I recorded this interview last week and never got around to posting it because life can be exhausting between work, the kids, fantasy baseball playoffs and cleaning cat puke. When I finally sat down and listened to it I had forgotten how interesting Amanda is!

She is a barista/art curator/artist/really nice person. She gives me a lesson on ponies vs. horses and another on $5 t-shirts vs. $50 t-shirts. We talk about the art she curates at the coffee shop/art gallery/record store where she works.

We spend a good amount of time discussing disgusting things men say to women online and in the real world, and how she funneled her frustration over this into a performance art piece.She also helps run a warehouse space where DIY punk & noise bands can do their thing for an audience.

I wish I had posted this interview sooner because I really do think it’s one of the more interesting discussions I’ve had. Meet my good friend Amanda.

n.b. for my father-in-law: I think you’re pretty cool.
