Our weekly interview show explores the journeys of those who do it best in all areas of youth culture. We learn how they stay creative in the face of relentless distract and setbacks. How they make something where previously nothing existed, how they find inspiration and influence, as well as how they inspire and influence others, and what it takes to create movements.

Rude Jude: How to boss up

4/24/2018
More
Rude Jude is one of my favorite people to talk to. He makes me feel like I’m his square cousin — the non-drinker, non-drug user, non-hot head — who I respect and admire but often disagree with. Doesn’t matter that we don’t agree on everything. He’s outspoken, opinionated, and passionate. If you don’t know Jude, he’s the host of the All Out Show on Shade 45, Sirius XM, and the author of two incredible memoirs. Get them both on audiobook and listen to Jude read them himself. It’s an amazing...

2/20/2018

Here’s what I love about Graham Funke and Stone Rokk: They’re great DJs, even if sometimes I don’t like the selection. “I play bad music well,” Graham says. They don’t take themselves too seriously, even when being outspoken and controversial. "I have a bit of a sociopath streak in me,” Stone Rokk tells me. Although they may not want to admit it, they obviously love the game. From painstaking attention to detail in the studio to creative marketing ideas to an upcoming book about their...

Around LA, Winston House has become something of an open secret. Even knowing about it, or better yet, having been, instantly makes you look a whole lot more plugged in.

Reminds us of the old days before everyone was hip to everything and every moment was gone as soon as it happened. For those who aren’t plugged...

To many of us forget that in life. We focus on the obstacles, the haters, the conditions that stand in the way of our success. Steve is here to teach us how to focus on the outcome. He’s built a...
