Had to bail on this episode when Dax sang the joys of capitalism after acknowledging benefitting from rent control when he was poor. Amazing how quickly people move on when they get a bit of money. Gentrification is a bad thing. It does not help the community. It pushes the community out of their homes, it displaces them, because of capitalism and it's insatiability. That's before we even get into the environmental impact. Dax came across as an incredibly selfish person, ignorant and lacking in self awareness. Dax is in a career that has benefitted from HUGE amounts of luck, and seems to think his current status is purely on merit. Genuinely surprised at his views. Kinda confused as to why he took this interview.

Wow, just wow! What a great interview with one of my favorite artists! admittedly, you did the damn thing my brother. you are a great interviewer and you ask really solid questions. what was most impressive-wise the way you approached the interview, and the way that you probed the guest. you have a real knack for inviting guests to speak openly and transparently. bravo!

Loved this, foreal. So much perspective and insight on historical important moments from the viewpoint of Kiss. I learned a lot from this podcast, gained appreciation and I'm even more of a fan. Thank you Talib, thank you Jada and shout out to Jasmine 🙏🏾💐🖤

Michael Rapaport has no filter. I appreciate your dialogue about you being a guru on race relations by your experiences and scholarship.

this was by far one of my favorite episodes because RG talked pure unadulterated music. I think a correction is warranted however....u guys talked about jazz bands to some degree and relatability to hip hop but did not mention mufk'n Stetsasonic. Daddyo still got bars. how did u guys overlook them?

Oh Michelle. Michael Vick did more than fight dogs (he tortured them when they lost). And he never really apologized or showed remorse. There’s even a documentary about this. I appreciate the need to allow people to be redeemed but show me the evidence he is redeemable other than having served a sentence that honestly should have been a loooooy longer to begin with.
