Kareemah El-Amin, executive director of the Food Bank of Michigan, calls in this as does Kyle Melinn who discusses the political future of Virg Bernero with Berl. We also listen to Andy’s interview with economist/author Jeremy Rifkin and another interview regarding cold cases in Lansing with Captain Daryl Green of the Lansing Police Department.
I’ve been told not to meet my heroes. “Your heroes will disappoint you,” they say. “They won’t be heroic. They’ll be divas. They’ll be dull. Don’t do it, save that pristine image of how cool they are in your head!” Still, like a lot of good advice I’ve been given in my life – such as, “Don’t major in English,” and “Logan, get down from there!” – I chose to ignore it.
And, thank God, Travis Stever and Zach Cooper of Coheed and Cambria were some of the nicest, most gracious, and humblest dudes I’ve ever met.

Psych-folk rockers Blitzen Trapper have been a Sub-Pop band since 2007 and have released four albums since. The catchy grooves and bluesy twang mixes with elements of psychedelic rock that cause them to sound like a modern-day Lynyrd Skynyrd or even CCR. Simple and accessible, yet rich and full, Blitzen Trapper provides the straight-forward, electro-infused southern rock to make any sunny drive an adventure of life and the soul.
Brooklyn-based A Great Big Pile of Leaves is the most fun you can have listening to music. From the intricate, yet soothing verse lines to the jovial, impossibly happy choruses, their songs delve into the concepts of nostalgia and the inner-workings of the human brain. The only people who can’t like this band are misanthropes and fools.
