Upload: Flowing with Famous, Episode 12

Uploaded for your listening pleasure: Another episode of the all-things-Fresno podcast Flowing with Famous. Once again, I am joined by Fresno podcast icon Mike Seay, and once again we hit on all our favorite topics.

Like:

  • Fresno vs. Clovis
  • Some local music scene news
  • Fresno Grizzlies and the state of downtown

Plus, we’ve named another band of the episode. Spoiler alert: It’s Light Thieves.

And once again, the whole thing is slightly NSFW (sorry).

Upload: Flowing with Famous, Episode No. 09

New to the Beehive, it’s the Flowing with Famous podcast, where I join Fresno podcast magnate Mike Seay to talk all things Fresno (not the store). On this episode we discuss:

  • The Rogue Festival
  • My first week here at The Bee
  • A new segment called “I Wish Fresno Would…”
