Radio On The Real. Mark Robbins.

We recently sat down to shoot the breeze with New York City native son and current Executive Director of the International Center of Photography, Mark Robbins. Mark’s career as an artist and educator has been nothing short of extraordinary. He’s served as the first Curator of Architecture at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus (1993-1999), Director of Design for the National Endowment for the Arts (1999-2002) under both Clinton and Bush, and most recently Dean of the School of Architecture at Syracuse University. Mark Robbins is also author of the book “Households,” which uses photography to examine the ways in which people inhabit their environments. Unsurprisingly, we found Mark to be an insightful and erudite storyteller, able to conjure up incredible imagery of growing up with a post-Robert Moses Soho as his playground, illustrate why nostalgia sucks and go in deep on why the unexpected is a city’s greatest friend.

Radio On The Real. CBS Newsman, Rob Klug.

On this Radio On The Real podcast, Jesse and Greg sit down with veteran newsman and vastly entertaining raconteur, Rob Klug. A dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker, Rob shares great stories about growing up in the Bronx, editing iconic music videos, making ground breaking reality programming, and directing the news division at CBS.

We had a blast having this conversation with Rob Klug and want to sincerely thank him for taking the time to share his memories and witticisms with us even if there was a technical gaff or two. After all, this is radio on the real, folks. We hope you enjoy!

Radio On The Real. First New York City Apartments.

Every New Yorker has a story about their first couple of New York City apartments. Well, we built this super bad-ass studio in Eve’s room for the recording of the first podcast of Radio On The Real to tell you about ours. We found inspiration from a Colson Whitehead quote about how the memories of your New York City apartments past should be treated and love the respect he throws at them all.

We’re hoping the podcasts will be a great new forum to continue the discussion we start here on the website, but with 40% more profanity!  And we plan on having a different guest every episode, so if you’re into what we’re doing, we’d love your suggestions on some local characters who want to gab. The more colorful, the better! And tell us about your first couple of New York City apartments. We’d love to hear!
