Coming up this morning at 11 a.m. CT, on Que4 radio Chicago, we’ll be speaking with Chicago’s Mushroom Man, Rob Poe on about “Nature Deficit Disorder” in both children and adults, the politics of poaching, the lack of the “commons” and how it relates to Chicago. Rob has a great knack for finding good free food in nearby places, and I don’t mean dumpster diving. He’ll be explaining a lot about foraging and the contradiction of selling his yield to fancy restaurants that service the 1%.
Shining Soul is a set of rising suns who’ve been on a steady path of ascension to a high thrown over the independent music scene in Phoenix since 2011. Emcee Liaizon and The Bronze Candidate deliver a needed fresh dose of social consciousness, inspired artistry, and skilled performance to the doorstep of the redundant parody-pop gated community known as the mainstream music industry.

These two ain’t pullin punches, and they’re coming straight-on at the immigration debate with a Red and Brown combo punch that shatters cultural barriers and nurtures fledgeling alliances within the diverse fabric of our youth.
We’ll be posting our interview here shortly, but until then you should check out their new album, Sonic Smash, which they just dropped on Sept. 10th…and then you should buy it.
