If you want to legalize, Ted Terry is a politician to have in your corner. The "Millennial Mayor" Ted Terry was the first to decriminalize marijuana in Georgia, starting with his city of Clarkston. Among many accomplishments during his time as Mayor, he's raised the minimum wage to $15/hour, actualized a thriving refugee community and was even on the stylish Netflix's show, Queer Eye. Tune in as Mayor Terry tells us the details of his successful career as a politician, and his next step, running for US Senate in 2020. He's vying for Senator David Purdue's spot, a seat IMO in desperate need of relevant perspective.

Forget the wine pairings, Hi-Five Supper Club brings the weed pairings. Ever wonder what it'd be like to eat fine dining, in an intimate setting, with cannabis-infused nourishments? Now you can, Atlanta, but it's still off the record. This episode interviews the duo behind Hi-Five Supper Club, an underground event company thoughtfully curating dinners and events using THC. Think Vice's "Bong Appetite," but local and technically still illegal and GA. Due to the sensitivity of this episode, the voices have been disguised. If you are a NARC, please focus your efforts on the growing heroin epidemic.

Clarice Jensen, the composer, cellist, and Artistic Director with the Brooklyn-based ACME - that's the American Contemporary Music Ensemble - has a new cassette release out via Geographic North, titled Drone Studies. The two pieces that make up this release, titled "The Organ that Made You Bleed" and "One Bee" show off an improvisational and naturally expressive tonal exploration that veers away from the compositional works she's created with ACME, and via collaborations with artists such as Jóhann Jóhannsson, Max Richter, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Dustin O'halloran, Stars of the Lid, and more. Drone Studies is out Sept. 6. I met up with Jensen and Jonathan Turner at Knoxville, Tennessee's Big Ears festival in March of 2019, where we discussed these two side-long pieces and their relationship to her body of work.
