Podcast: Small Craft Advisory

Twice-monthly broadcast from our boat to yours. Friendly radio murmurs on books, art, weather, memory, sex, science, the occult, family, relationships, etc. Ideally the feeling of riding sleepy in the backseat on a road trip in the dark while your friends, who are driving, talk to each other and you drift in and out. Sporadic continuity, amiable guests. [more inside]

You Can't Eat The Sunshine, Esotouric's podcast celebrating Los Angeles lore

Esotouric turns the notion of guided bus tours on its ear with excursions like Charles Bukowski's Los Angeles and Pasadena Confidential. Now you don't have to get on the bus to get the skinny. Each week on the You Can't Eat The Sunshine podcast, join Kim Cooper and Richard Schave on their Southern California adventures, as they visit with fascinating characters for wide-ranging interviews that reveal the myths, contradictions, inspirations and passions of the place.

Dig for Fire: Art Inspired by the Pixies

In the late 1980s and early '90s, the Pixies redefined the alt-rock genre with stripped-down tunes, biting lyrics, and an unguarded attitude that inspired bands like Nirvana, Radiohead, and the Strokes, just to name a few.
