What makes a great bass player? When you don't notice him... until suddenly you do. And then he folds right back into the mix again. Like a ghost. But a ghost that you can feel. That moves you without calling attention to themselves. It's much the same with what makes a great person. Ego gets left behind, and the job of holding it all down becomes the focus. Luis Espaillat does both.Holding down the low end for countless artists and holding up his end at home with his wife and kids. Jace sits down with a dude he admires and talks music, family, and how "being the brand" is one of the worst things a human being can aspire to do.

We've all been noticing the slow death of print journalism. As the digital revolution continues, it seems both obvious, and confusing. Here to shed a little light on the demise of the local paper is Mr. Kevin Walters. A former reporter at The Tennessean, and currently working for the State as Communications Director for the Department of Commerce and Insurance, Walters is a cartoonist, writer, film aficionado, and a damn fine raconteur. He also loves cracking on your humbled host, Jace Everett. Enjoy!
Jace sits down with firearms expert, and Nashville dentist, Dr. Sherman House.
A civil conversation about guns in America, with two friends that disagree. A lot.
