373 - Bobby Kim of The Hundreds

David Defeo

If you want someone to listen you have to grab their attention. If you want to keep that attention you need to have something worth saying. Everyday each of us are endlessly marketed to and Bobby Kim of The Hundreds found his own way to cut through the white noise and speak directly to the world from his early blog posts to his current seat at the head of the streetwear industry where he now uses the attention he earned to continue fighting for a better world. The Hundreds was the first platform Bobby used to gain our attention yet there is so much more to this politically charged, socially introspective, feminist father who applies his mind to his own impact on the community around him. Far from an out of touch and jaded who's who in the fashion world, Bobby has pioneered what a brand can do and how they fit into the marketplace from the small doors to mall doors. So listen up because Bobby has something to say and its definitely worth your attention.

464 - Anthony Green

David Defeo

Anthony Green has used his life to travel down many creative roads and in every incantation you will find the same burning spirit waiting underneath to be unleashed. While luck and raw talent have played a pivotal role in his success, there is no denying that Anthony has a connection with every aspect defining the human experience from the most vulnerable to the most carnal. By publicly surrendering to these raw emotions, people around the world have transcended language barriers and jumped over literal barriers to share just one moment in proximity to the emotions Anthony personifies on stage that also drive them. All these experiences come at different costs that Anthony welcomes from balancing family time and life on the road to overcoming addiction and developing a whole new playbook on coping. Nothing is held back as Mark and Anthony leave it all on stage for everyone to hear in this emotional interview into the mind and heart of a perfect hollywood height little god.

What In The Hell Is Going On Here?

Dear COT,

It's exciting times for the AID Network and I want to share with you all what's going on and what to expect on this off week.

Clickbait and I are working away on the COT app and will have beta testers kicking the virtual tires in June. While this process is happening there will be some days where there will be no new shows so that we can work on the app and use our bandwidth restrictions to make sure we are uploading classic AID episodes into the app archive. This will help us make sure that when the app launches it has as many of the big names and powerful episodes from the past 750 episodes as possible to make everyone feel like they have the power in their pocket or purse on launch day.

I'm also up in Portland Tuesday - Friday recording our new series with Lincoln Design Co. "Brand Practice" which will begin in June and align with the release of the new AID Network logo created by Lincoln. While I'm in Portland I will be recording with Dan Stiles, working on our race car and conducting interviews with Matt from Crop and Tony from Industry Print Shop. As well as filming all of this for upcoming VLOG episodes. So, there's a lot of content happening this week. 

And speaking of content if you miss me while I'm gone, you can catch up Wake Up Call every day over on iTunes or at Anchor. Wake Up Call will be a part of the app and the newly designed AID.Network but for now it's on those platforms for ease of updating. Plus a new VlOG went up today featuring BTS on the latest Dan Stiles interview. Check it out on our YouTube channel. 

So from now until next Wednesday, the feed may be a little sloppy and a little weird but there will be some new content mixed in with some classics. I wanted to let you know what's happening so that it all made sense to you and you didn't think I was being lazy, because it's like the dead opposite of that right now. 

Thanks for your patience and understanding!
Mark

Alfred Kurt Berger III has worked on Disney's Tron Legacy, Alice Through The Looking Glass and Clash of The Titans.

NEW SERIES: Mark Brickey's Wake Up Call

Mark Brickey

COVER.jpg

Episode 01 "Best Decision I Ever Made: Giving Up On My Mother"

Hey friends here's a new daily short 5/10 minute podcast series I'm starting. Currently it's only available here: http://anchor.fm/wakeupcall but stay tuned for more information as this is brand new and it will evolve like all projects do. 

Series Description

5/10 Minutes Every Morning That Will Inspire You To Make The Most Of Your Day. 
New Episodes At 8AM EST Every Day That Ends In Y.

Special Request

Maybe send this over to a friend that you know that has suffered through the abandonment of a parent. It's been a scar that I have carried my entire life and is probably the number one motivator in all that I do and have done. It would mean a lot to me to reach out to someone else in the same situation.
