NITES/WKNDS with Lee Pacchia

1 Favorite

In the past 6 or so years, Lee Pacchia's done a lot of interviews. Over 2000, all in all. That's a lot, right? But something he's always wanted out of this gig and, for whatever reason, hasn't been able to obtain up to this point is the freedom to interview anyone on anything. He's always wanted to do a show that spoke to the broader spectrum of human experience; the kind of stuff you should be thinking about when we're not working ourselves to death. Each week Lee be sits down with all manner of smart people to talk about their careers and their views on life, current events, up-and-coming bands we should be paying attention to, why the New York Knicks chronically suck and so much more.
