This week we sit down with Eric Watts, a rising star in the Los Angeles wrestling scene. We get into the business behind the business, like unionizing and getting paid? but we also talk about the human side, like where Eric finds the anger that he sometimes needs to get in the zone and the big themes of fear, racism, sexism, and homophobia that still cover the surface of the sport.
Our guest this week is Carlos Santos. He’s an actor, comedian, and improvisor originally from Puerto Rico, currently living in Los Angeles. We talk about translating comedy, typecasting, his time at MTV, going broke to pursue your passion, doing accents for work, and US relations with Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
Daniel’s favorite rapper Fat Tony sits in this week to talk about ALL KINDS of great stuff! We get into the grind of the music business, living abroad, building confidence through art, getting kicked off tour, entrepreneurship in hip hop, the N word, ODB, RABDARGAB, Brooklyn, Paddington 2, In Living Color, punk, and Tony’s little brother Charles.
Also check out his band Charge it to the Game and see one of his upcoming shows:
