The Streets Dept Podcast Launches Today, A Talk with R. Eric Thomas

October 10, 2017

Today I’m launching something I’ve been working towards for the last five months, and something I’ve been wanting to do for the last two years. (Yes, I might literally be crying tears of joy right now.)

SO excited to launch the Streets Dept Podcast today! What is the Streets Dept Podcast? Great question, silent reader! The Streets Dept Podcast is a bi-monthly (that’s twice a month) interview podcast. I’ll be interviewing artists and creatives from around the world. From street artists to poets, activists to politicians, small business owners to community organizers. The podcast will feature one-on-one, 30-minute-ish interviews with the creative minds who are shaping the world around us.

And who better to launch the podcast with than R. Eric Thomas! R. Eric is a Senior Staff Writer for where he writes Eric Reads the News, which has quickly become an online humor staple with over a million social media shares. Since its inception, R. Eric’s column has been praised by such disparate personalities as Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mariah Carey, Maxine Waters, Tamron Hall, and Tituss Burgess.

For this premier episode of the Streets Dept Podcast, R. Eric sits down with me to talk about his burgeoning career, his faith, what he’s missing most from the Obama presidency, and the possibility of spending an eternity in heaven with Cher:

Be sure to subscribe to the Streets Dept Podcast on iTunes, SoundCloud, or Google Play to receive episodes as soon as they’re published, and please feel free to rate and write a review of the podcast on those platforms to help others find it. (It really, REALLY helps when y’all rate and review, so it’d mean the world to me if you could do that!)

Season One of the Streets Dept Podcast is brought to you by our sponsors at The Navy Yard and Indy Hall! Each episode is mixed and edited by our Producer Mike Mehalick.

(The art in the recording studio we’re using, which you can see in the photo above, is a collab by Sean Martorana and Saul Rosenbaum.)
