Rebel Radio shines a light on cultural pioneers and their influences, reflecting on the roots and future of underground culture. We engage the influencers who define what we wear, watch, listen to, and play with — and how we spend our spare time and loose change — and explore what it means to be a creative entrepreneur today. 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.

Corey McGuire of Winston House: How to go big without getting too big

10/31/2017
More
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. If you do spend an evening inside, you come to understand that being there, being part of the community, sharing the experience, is so much more than clicking Like on the photo. 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...

8/8/2017

Josh’s guest Steve Hofstetter knows that when he goes up on stage, his job is to make sure the crowd has a good time. It’s not about getting through his set, telling the jokes he’s worked hard at writing, or destroying the heckler who’s trying to mess things up for him. It’s only about the crowd. 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...

Dennis White was my first guest on Rebel Radio when we launched two years ago. He shared some great stories about how he’s built a career making music in various forms, various genres, under various names. It was a great way to kickoff the show.

7/4/2017

I love how Aisha describes “doing social media” as her job. It’s accurate, but I’ve never heard anyone express it that way. The former Big Brother Sydney contestant — now a full-time social influencer and owner / design of the new clothing line Boy By Her — came by Rebel Radio to tell us what it’s like living in the public eye and how she found both the confidence and discipline to launch her own brand. The first lesson you can learn from her is to be young and beautiful. But after that,...
