The founders of the Kithara Project talk about their goal of putting guitar and classical music into the hands of children in areas that lack the resources for arts education and programming. You know, I can be selfless and helpful too. I'm just really busy with my podcast right now? And also I need to replace my headphones. I'm thinking bluetooth for the gym, but I don't know if they're sweat proof.

Chilean guitarist and composer Pedro Rodriguez comes on the show to talk about his homeland, being a nylon jazz player, and how much fun it is to hear Americans use foul language. He's in the right place because I swear like an older sister at a bachelorette party.

Christopher Mallet released three albums in the same year. Including two duo albums with two different guitar duos. He’s also married to four women, has a pet lion and is going into improv comedy. He’s a risk taker, a deal maker, and a ball breaker! (he’s a sweetheart)

 Herschel Garfein shares that even he, an Grammy award winning composer and librettist, eats bananas out of garbage cans and smokes cigarettes off the sidewalk. Also, I move to an area contaminated by an oil spill in 1950 that was three times the size of Exxon Valdez. Art in America is alive and well and littered with high concentrations of free radicals.
