357. – Bob Lefsetz

Bob Lefsetz is a music-biz veteran and the undisputed king of email newsletters. We chat about Joe Budden mispronouncing the word “ableist,” we got Biologique facials, building a fanbase the old-fashioned way, the benefits of being a one-man-band, starting his newsletter in 1986 as snail mail, when Politics and streaming TV replaced music, Chris and Bob argue about whether or not to call people on the phone, MTV was his vibe shift, big muckety-mucks, if the money is right and you hate your family then the music business is for you, his LA haunts, the karmic load of favor-doing, and some of Bob’s favorite podcasters.
