In the latest release, the Drinking Partners broadcast live from Epicast producers Buzzy Torek & Nick Miller’s living room and welcome repeat guests Pittsburgh-based emcee Hubbs and defense attorney Dan Muessing, who moonlights as freestyle rapper Dos Noun. The commentary shifts between political and confidential in the relaxed atmosphere, with much of the early discussion centering on the legalization of cannabis. From there, an in-depth analysis of the genre of rap ensues, with a complex and thought-provoking conversation developing around the scope of women in lyrics. At times fast-paced and unconstrained, the interview ranges from commentary on the confederate flag to a detailed inquiry into socio-economic realities. The podcast concludes with a discussion and critique of Pittsburgh’s hip-hop culture. Be sure to stay tuned for a impromptu, impressive, and dynamic live performance and collaboration between Hubbs and Dos Noun. A well-timed podcast release on the eve of a momentous election.
