In this increasingly crazy world, I’m glad I have my podcasts.
Lately, I’ve actually been opting for these streamed conversations over music. True enough, music allows you to tune out the noise of the outside world and engage in the sounds of your favorite artists. Podcast, however, allow you tune into the noise of the outside world in a calm, comical, or collected manner, depending on the hosts.
There are times when it’s difficult for me to articulate my thoughts about the political state of our country, my desires for my career path, and pop culture events, so gaining the perspective of other like-minded individuals can serve as counsel. When I found out one of my biggest style/writer influences co-created a podcast, it was immediately drafted into my “Morning Commute” rotation.
Rich Friend is the brainchild of GQ Magazine‘s very own, Mark Anthony Green along Matthew Trammell, the night-life editor of the New Yorker. This weekly conversation, excuse me, “Elevated Conversation,” provides a smart, humorous take on everything from music, style, politics, pop culture, art and more.
What sets Rich Friend apart from other podcasts is their exclusive interviews with their rich friends. Each a maven in their own right, these individuals represent industries such as fashion, music, and entertainment, and freely drop gems that you absolutely cannot get anywhere else.
The “friend” aspect of the podcast is what makes it special; the guests come in relaxed, with their guard down making them comfortable enough to share their thoughts and advice on topics that could otherwise seem too personal. Lucky for the listeners, we are able to gain this insight tax-free! List of past guest includes Upscale Vandel, DJ Kitty Cash, Fonzeworth Bently, and just recently, DJ Clark Kent.
If you’re new to the podcast world and looking for an introduction or are already into them and desire a more elevated conversation, I recommend Rich Friend.
Peace, peace, peace,
