hello everyone! i hope you are in a quiet and safe place. i am not. i'm at my grandmother's house and there are people yelling, dogs barking and old people falling down. it's 9:13 a.m. and i'm contemplating a very strong cocktail and a xanax... merry christmas? maybe this experience will be merrier under the influence. i got so drunk last night, i rode my aunt's rascal 5 blocks to 7-11 and bought cigarettes for everyone in the family wether or not they smoke. some might call this living the dream. anyway, if i survive this experience, i'll tell you all about it on friday's show. but seriously, i hope you're having a good holiday.
my guest for episode 131 is my incredibly talented friend, elias haslanger. he is an amazing jazz saxophone player and an all around amazing human being. i feel like a better person for having talked to him. elias has been on a great artistic journey and we talk all about it. from learning his instrument, to our high school stage band and teacher, his various musical projects and his commitment to his family. after our conversation, i realized that i like him even more than i thought. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.
