Each week, he sits down and chats with an interesting person from the far reaching worlds of entertainment to find out how their life was changed by the discovery of a novelty genre that supposedly died out in 1978... PUNK.

Hey, It’s Damian. Anthony Bourdain was someone that championed & celebrated punk & it’s influence. He was also someone that, for some unknown reason, championed the work that I do as well.

Here is the conversation we had that day as well as my eulogy for one of my personal heroes. RIP Tony. Thank you for everything
