This week, Ashley and Mike look at the man who brought Bob Marley and other seminal musicians to the world: Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records. He’s the subject of a great new book, and Tom Freston, a former head of MTV and a friend of Blackwell’s, stops by to discuss his impact. In addition, Alexandra Marshall joins us from France to help us understand why Emmanuel Macron’s chest hair (!) is getting so much attention on Instagram. All this and more make this week’s episode one you won’t want to miss. Listen by clicking Play below. But be sure to subscribe at Apple Podcasts or Spotify so you don’t miss an episode.
