WHATS UP this month I talked to my best friend, artist and freakazoid Caroline Paquita, about growing up in Miami, getting into woo woo spirituality and health practices, running her publishing house Pegacorn Press, connecting with queer elders, and MORRRRE. This is a long one but we really packed it in. Also here is the newsletter I mentioned in the intro. Thumbnail pic borrowed from Caroline's instagram.

Bryony Beynon (BB & the Blips)

10/24/2018
More
Bryony was courteous enough to wake up early on tour to sit with me in my office and talk shit while we were both too tired and drinking coffee. We talked about the barriers of entry--social, physical, emotional--for women getting into underground music, 90s street punk in NYC vs South Wales, the Beatles, the joy of discovery vs the urge to pretend you already know everything, the drive to create, the generative power of just talking to your friends, internet CANCELLED culture. Also my cat...

More
WHAT'S GOOD welcome back to Radio Harvester after we had to take June off cause I had LYME DISEASE (oy vey) !!! Very excited for this month's guest, Madeleine Campbell, who runs Accessible Recording and does the zine Women In Sound. We talked about growing up in The Triangle, the parallels between punk/hardcore and modern avant garde composers, getting into recording, doing zines, and THE LUNACHICKS (mostly I talked about the Lunachicks, tbh). This interview rules and you should definitely...

Mark Cross (Mudd Guts)

5/8/2018
More
Me and Mark sat down at his art gallery, Mudd Guts (http://muddguts.com), and talked about the suburbs being weird, getting into graffiti, getting into tattooing and opening his own shop (http://www.rosetattoonyc.com), sobriety in adulthood, anonymity at the level of press radio and film, being a "wretched flesh formation," and more. Please enjoy. I don't know why my outro sounds so bad but it's like the last two minutes of the damn thing, suck it up.

Brontez Purnell (Since I Laid My Burden Down)

4/2/2018
More
What's good! Radio Harvester is back and we're starting Season 3 strong with a longer cut of a 2015 conversation I had with Brontez Purnell, because my girl won a MOTHERFUCKING WHITING AWARD and we're all very proud of him. This conversation is a little rambly but I think Brontez is so charming I didn't edit out too many of his ADD ass tangents. We talk about writing books, artistic practice, dance, being a multi-disciplinary multimedia queen in a digital age, garage rock as a haven for...

Megan March & Jon No (Street Eaters)

7/31/2017
More
This month's interview is with John & Megan from Street Eaters! This is the first extended cut of an older, shorter podcast. I intended to put it out a few weeks earlier so it would be out while they were still on tour, supporting their new record The Envoy out soon on their label Nervous Intent Records but I fucked up and it's too late and they're home now. What are you gonna do! I think John and Megan are both really cool, smart people and I'm very happy to have spoken to them. Also this...

Faiza Kracheni (Bondage / Body Pressure)

6/12/2017
More
This month's guest Faiza Kracheni—singer of Bondage and Body Pressure, coordinator at Austin School of Film, all around cool & stylish gal about town—talks about getting into hardcore as a delinquent teen in Austin, TX; being a brown woman in punk; the grim reality of punk/hardcore message board culture; dudes trying to shame you for wanting to look fly on tour; etc. Plus I earnestly apologize for two different things in the intro and disingenuously apologize for one thing at the end.

Kenya (Robinson) (Cheeky LaShae, #TrashDAY)

4/19/2017
More
This podcast almost broke my computer! I just got it out of the shop and the first thing I did was make sure the episode was safe because lemme tell you, folks, this episode is a doozy. Firstly, it's the first episode not recorded in a pizzeria. Wanna know why? Because I live in Texas. Instead, I sat down with multidisciplinary multimedia artist Kenya (Robinson) at Taqueria Los Jaliscienses, one of the only Mexican restaurants in the world where the Jamaica isn't too sweet for me. We...

Ted Leo (Ted Leo)

2/27/2017
More
This month I sit down with Ted Leo and we talked about his punk roots in Jersey, why going to college is stupid, how to dress well as you get older, Skrewdriver records, touring, etc, etc etc. Ted is a handsome mensch who makes good music and you should listen to what he has to say! He has a new record he's kickstarting, so bless him with some cash. If you're wondering why we didn't talk about the current political climate it's because this interview happened a long ass time ago! Luckily,...

Osa Atoe (Shotgun Seamstress)

5/21/2015
More
This month I sat down with Osa Atoe of Shotgun Seamstress fanzine! She is so cool and smart and it was really cool to hang out with her. We talk about Shotgun Seamstress, Osa's zine "by, for, and about black punks," and the complicated, sometimes conflicted relationship between Osa's black identity and her punk identity. It's not all somber or serious! We laugh a bunch and it's a really complex and enlightening conversation. Check out Osa's web presence at:...

Freddy Alva (Wardance Records)

4/23/2015
More
This month I sat down with Freddy Alva who runs Wardance Records to talk about the history of ABC No Rio and the climate of the hardcore scene in NYC when Freddy and some of his friends decided to start putting on shows there every Saturday. These shows still happen today, though Freddy and his crew are All Grown Up and it's a different gang of kids involved. Now Freddy's label Wardance Records (wardancerecords.bigcartel.com) has been reissuing some of the coolest releases from Back In The...

This month I sat down with my hero Tom Scharpling of the Best Show. I'm just gonna let this interview speak for itself. If you're unfamiliar with Tom's work, head to http://www.thebestshow.net and check it out. He's a force of nature, this guy.

Cindy Crabb (Doris Zine)

1/22/2015
More
I've known Cindy Crabb for about ten years but she's been doing zines for way longer than that. We talk about her trajectory from being a weirdo teen in Minneapolis who was curious about punks but didn't quite know where she fit to her decision to losing faith in everything and moving to Portland to finally deciding to "access the rage" and be a punk in the Bay. Doris is one of the most important zines. If you've read it you know that, but if you haven't, check it out at:...

Lew Houston (Lesser Beings, BLURT! Zine)

12/18/2014
More
Me and the dude Lew Hue (this is what I call him in my head but I've never said it to his face) sit down at the pizza parlor to do some tender Bent Haus reminiscing, plus talk about trading zines when we were teenagers; the trauma of forced socialization; alienation from notions of manhood; Mike Ness being a douche. Lew is my bfl (bro for life) and we had a good time talking and maybe you'll have a good time listening? Check out his website for art and music: http://www.noothhing.org

I talk to my friends Gabi & Terri about their Hurrican Sandy Cleanup effort, Respond & Rebuild, at their favorite pizza place in the Rockaways, Original Ciro's. They tell the story of how R&R came to be and talk about what they think disaster relief should look like to be more effective in the future. I'm really proud of this episode and I'm really proud of my friends. Although Respond & Rebuild's relief work is currently on hiatus, you can read more about them at their website:...
