He was a skinhead in his youth, and now he run an organization (Life After Hate) to get people out of that life. In the first part of this two-episode interview, Christian Picciolini talks with us about what makes a skinhead in America, what the current socio-political climate is doing to mainstream similar views and what can be done to address it. If you like what he has to say, check out his book, ROMANTIC VIOLENCE: Memoirs of an American Skinhead, or listen to the next CultureCast episode to get the rest of the interview.
We’re excited to welcome our new cohost this week, Matthew David Morris, singer/songwriter, theologian and generally groovy dude. His resume is way to impressive and long to detail here, so just listen to him as he corrects all the things Christian added to his bio last episode. Apparently Matthew writes songs for Jesus himself!
We talk about why the Pacific Northwest may well be the most racist region in America, why Amy is afraid of toes and hair, and we explore Christian’s unnatural affinity for Lord Buckethead.
Confused? Listen and we won’t promise it’ll make any more sense. But hey, it’s fun to try.
