Man, this was a fun episode. We had Billy Warden on to talk about the new Joe Winters exhibit, Raleigh politics, his past (checkered as it is :) and all sort of stuff. Joe Winters was a Raleigh beat cop who was also a promoter on the side, bringing in Aretha Franklin, James Brown, and dozens of other artists to Raleigh. Billy's a thinker, and helps make Raleigh happen. Paul Friedrich (of Onion Head Monster fame) drops in, and yes, he'll be on for a full episode soon.
So today we're talking with Lars Robinson and Hide Terada with Pine State Coffee. Pine State is quickly working on their vision of a coffee house, community space, market fusion place. The coffee is awesome. The vibe is awesome. You should check them out for sure.
Pine State Coffee is located at 1614 Automotive Way. Basically in that area behind the Circus Restaurant on Wake Forest Rd. where the split is to merge onto Capital Blvd.

We interview our bud Micah Gaugh in this week’s episode. He’s basically the master of everything. Really. He’s that good. For more info, check out his website at http://www.micahgaugh.info/
We’re going to have Micah’s art on display (and for sale) for the month of March 2019 at House of Swank (119. E Hargett St, Raleigh NC 27601) Swing by and grab something before it’s gone!
Here’s his bio. It’s pretty bananas.
Micah Gaugh has been drawing all of his life. His father would bring home GQ magazines from his job and Micah would spend hours drawing clothes from the magazines. This show is a semi-retrospective of his work. The autobiographical novel 'Seeing in the Dark' will be presented along with jewelry collection created by Trisch Cavaliere and Micah Gaugh. Also paintings and drawings which encompass Micah's signature style will be on display. For the opening on March 1st (Raleigh First Fridays) a reading from the novel by the artist will be accompanied by original music by Micah Gaugh and special guest guitarist Jay Booth. Micah Gaugh has exhibited visual art and made musical installations in galleries all over the world including the Serpentine Gallery (London), White Box (NY), and Gavin Brown (NY) to name a few. Micah Gaugh lives in the East Village New York.
This was a fun one. We sat down and talked with our bud Sean Kernick about his road to becoming a mural artist, life as an artist, and Hustle 101. Sean is one of those unreasonable cool folks that sometimes you're lucky to meet. Enjoy.

I had a great time sitting down with Joe Kreiner from Epic Games for this episode of the Raleigh Raleigh Raleigh Podcast. Joe is the Business Development Director for Epic's Unreal Engine, which is the backend powerhouse of bijillions of games. This episode was recorded at State of Beer on Hillsborough St in beautiful downtown Raleigh.
Joe started out in Hardware Development, worked at Texas Instruments straight out of Penn State, and worked his way up the line. He gives some FANTASTIC advice to folks that want to get into the industry about halfway through the interview. In a nutshell
1) Go to school: Computer Science, Computer Engineering, etc
2) Intern and volunteer wherever and whenever you can
3) Be motivated as hell, period. This industry doesn’t reward slackers.
Topics we hit on
Unreal Engine - what the hell is it?
Old School Consoles and Games
A super cool book on the Commodore VIC 20
B17 Bomber - only the greatest video game ever created
Clip of B17 Bomber for the young whippersnappers that never played it.
Dev and Game Scene in and around Raleigh
Awesome Restaurants and Clubs in Downtown Raleigh
The Future of Tech
MUST see video of Tim Sweeny (founder of Epic Games) on Human Interaction in Virtual Reality
