This week on the podcast, I talk to Stephen Bracket (a.k.a. Brer Rabbit) of Denver hip-hop crew Flobots! We talk about their hit “Handlebars”, how the group got its name, and how he uses comic books to educate people in prisons and classrooms. He also draws on his experience to talk about the group’s switch from a major label to becoming independent, and ways bands can communicate better. We end with a discussion about the fallacy of blind optimism, and he shares some info on the group’s upcoming projects. Thanks Stephen!
