‘Dreams Do Come True in Hollywood. You Just Have to Want Em.’
Tony Pierce chats with Erupt about the debut neighborhood in ‘Hear in LA’
If you haven’t noticed, I am an enormous Chicago Cubs fan.
In practically every picture you see of me I am wearing a Cubs cap. I wear one during the interviews I conduct and I am wearing one in this interview with the LA-based startup Erupt.
Thursday afternoon through today, Friday, the Cubs have ruthlessly traded many of their best players in exchange of young, unproven players in a fire sale fans of the North Siders are in tears about.
Present company included.
This interview with Erupt took place moments before the first domino fell.
I was happy, full of life, excited, and fully motivated to continue this ridiculous marathon.
Today I can’t even get out of bed.
Jordan and I expected to have just one podcast up this week, and I hoped I would have something on the Hear In LA blog to replace what would be a terribly long podcast-transcription.
Little did I know we would have this nice interview to fill the hole.
The two episodes Blake and I chatted about were ones with William G, the man who yells at cops;
Miles Macy, the young man from Indiana who lives in a Van Halen van,
and two of the most popular Hollywood Blvd characters, the Joker & Harley Quinn.
All 7 of the episodes Jordan and I made are dear to our hearts, so if you haven’t caught up yet,
go to either Apple Podcasts or Spotify or your local podcast pusher because we spend a lot of time on these because we love you very much.
I am going to order a dozen Popeyes chicken sandwiches now and attempt to enter a food coma now.
Tune in next week when we return to the podcast with a cop.
An animal cop.
This man grew up in both Hollywood and Beverly Hills, used to commute, by bicycle from Silver Lake to Marina Del Rey,
and has a few things to say about our episode with William G.
Check in on your Cub fan friends.
