In this episode, Alex and Shaun revisit the April 19, 2019 Black Belt Eagle Scout show with Disq at Communication. After sharing their respective introductions to Black Belt Eagle Scout’s genre-defying music (1:40), they discuss whiteness and privilege in the context of building a more inclusive concert-going community in Madison (5:31) before Alex offers some brief thoughts about bystander intervention (19:21).
Later, Shaun chats with Katherine Paul (AKA KP) of Black Belt Eagle Scout about the personal nature of the project (24:22) before asking artist and touring BBES drummer, Camas Logue, about his artwork (31:02). In this week’s A/V Club segment, KP shares a few details about the music video for “Loss & Relax” (33:27) before looking ahead to projects slated for later this year (42:57).
