Bobby Pickles' Podcast™️

Bobby speaks on location, at a quaint coffee shop called Elsewhere Espresso, with Aliah Rosenthal, poet, musician and talent-agent, about life growing up on the mean streets of the East Village, an area once generally considered to be the epicenter of the counterculture in New York City -- home to a vast array of artists and bohemians -- the Beatniks arose from this neighborhood, Allen Ginsberg, the father of “the beat generation” was just one of its famous residents, Punk Rock emerged from its slums, etc.

Bobby also reports from the field about a hip, fresh, unconventional concert experience known as Sofar Sounds.

Bobby speaks with Bob McManus, a person who has absolutely no affiliation in anyway whatsoever with FAT ENZO. Everything stated in this episode is jest. It is a performance art piece that was produced at the beginning of Bobby's podcasting career.

Bobby speaks with "Papa" about life and loyalties 60 miles north of New York City, in what some have labeled the “armpit of Connecticut”. 

The birthplace of the Frisbee and of the Subway restaurant chain, it’s a place latent with political corruption and scandals, like when the city’s mayor admitted to using cocaine while in office.

The comedian Fred Allen once referred to it when he famously said, "Everywhere outside New York City is Bridgeport, Connecticut."
