Mouthfeel Mag & Johnny Aries
This week on Snacky Tunes, Greg Bresnitz is back! Greg and Darin kick off the show with Mac Malikowski, founder and editor of the gay-foodie Mouthfeel Magazine. Exploring the cross-section between food and gay culture, Mac shares how he came up with the unique spin on the zine and while not solely a gay publication, it's filled with profiles, photos, love letters, recipes, essays and more. Mac emphasizes that Mouthfeel is not a gay men's Good Housekeeping, rather it champions the spirit, creativity and counter culture ethos of the world, which has historically defined gay culture and the best of culinary arts. Special guest Renato Poliafito of Baked NYC also joins in! In the second half of the show, Greg and Darin welcome musical guest Johnny Aries to the show. An England transplant in NYC, Johnny brings his axe to the studio to play a few tunes in the indie/surf rock vein and shares how he made the jump across the pond. With new music on the way, Johnny discusses how the new album is a departure in sentiment from the last. This program was brought to you by Bonnie Plants.
