Episode 2: Reconciliation In The Media

On this episode, we speak with some the strongest voic­es in the media indus­try. We pose the ques­tion — has rec­on­cil­i­a­tion hap­pened in the media? Has it hap­pened with­in the lives of these personalities?

The episode clos­es with Ghost­keep­ers track Trans Am Sis­ter from their album, Sheer Blouse Buf­fa­lo Knocks. Be sure to check out more of their amaz­ing music at ghost​keep​er​.band​camp​.com.

Our open­ing and clos­ing theme music comes to us cour­tesy of Boogey The Beat — check out more of his bril­liant work at sound​cloud​.com/​b​o​o​g​e​y​t​h​ebeat. The inter­sti­tial music is cour­tesy of Bloom — you can hear more of their songs at bloom14​.band​camp​.com.
