On this very special bonus episode, we had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Henneberger, Emmy-award winning producer, music journalist & new author of the best-selling book Rock Bottom at the Renaissance: an Emo Kid's Journey Through Falling In and Out of Love In and With New York City. The book is not all sunshine & rainbows, there is a lot of very dark & true content in this "mixtape memoir." Mike gets into why the bands he chose to interweave into the chapters, how he never meant to wrote this book, but is glad he did & how it can help people in dark places see light. We also put Mike through our rapid fire segment where he eliminates one Disney movie from existence, adapts his book to a TV show & even tells us how great of a steak his wife cooks. All that and so much more.
