Open Mike Eagle joins us all the way from Germany, where he is on tour with his Cavanaugh bandmate Serengeti. They have been gathering many memories as they play or attempt to play dates on the continent and they have many stories to tell. Some of the stories are happy stories, some are more frightening. In general, the fellas have not been getting along with airplanes. Then we hear Mike’s interview with Houston-based rapper Fat Tony. He talks about growing up in middle-class Houston, navigating having immigrant parents, and how his father’s experience in the Nigerian civil war affected his early life. Plus, a debate: Midnight Marauders vs. Low End Theory.
