Blue Steel spent years working in the trenches of DC politics and has somehow managed to escape with both her humanity and her sense of humor intact. In this episode, she and I pole vault off of Charles Blow's Rescue Plan for Black America into all sorts of topics. A lot of them concerning race and politics. A fair number not. Pretty chill, fun conversation considering the subject matter.

Michael Hearst is a musician, composer, author, and all around good guy living in Brooklyn with his wife and son. Due in equal parts to his talent and chillness, he's well-known, well-liked, and well-respected among many well-known, well-liked, and well-respected people. You may not know his name, but there are decent odds that some of your favorite artists do. He might even have brunch with a few of them.
He's one-half of the band One Ring Zero and the author of the forthcoming Unconventional Vehicles: Forty-Five of the Strangest Cars, Trains, Planes, Submersibles, Dirigibles, and Rockets EVER.
