In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to noted author of the book “Rap Dad” Mr. Juan Vidal.

Joe and Juan do a deep dive into many different aspects of the book including, but not limited to: Fatherhood, Hip-Hop, Faith and the Sadness. It’s a fascinating conversation and one of the best books we’ve read all year.

Additionally, if you want more great examples of Juan’s writing style for various news outlets here is a recent review he did of Amparo Davila for the L.A. Times:

Amparo Davila’s short stories are beautifully wrought nightmares.

We cannot thank Juan enough for taking time out of his busy schedule to come on the show and we look forward to a return appearance!
