#063 PPP- The Callahan Era

After a bit of a break to deliver Callahan Wayne Cearley into the world, the Panhandle Primate Podcast returns with a bit of birth of its own. We are experimenting with a few format changes that we hope will make the show more dynamic and engaging. The first addition comes with the addition of my wife, Shannon the Nerd, to the team. Shannon will sit in on the podcasts to interject her “Dexter edits,” run Google searches, and host a couple segments. The second addition comes in the form of “The Regular.” This episode’s regular is Mojito Mike. Mike is a hilarious guy and will be a dynamic addition to the conversations. We introduced the segment Mojito Mike’s Movie Moment and also get to know a little about his background. As always ,we at the Panhandle Primate Podcast value our listeners feed back, hop over to our facebook page or follow me on Instagram to let us know what you think about the new direction. Enjoy!

#061 PPP- Malcolm Byers (Street Artist)

#061 PPP- Malcolm Byers (Street Artist)

Defining celebrity in Amarillo is tricky, but in my opinion Malcolm Byers is rapidly gaining notoriety. Malcolm is a street artist whose works can be seen all over the state. He recently did a large mural for the Pedigo run for city council which can still be seen at 6th and Adams in Amarillo, TX. I encourage every one of my listeners to check out his instagram @malcolm_byers to see some of the beauty he is spraying. Malcolm stands as a testament that boredom is often the pathway to greatness. I enjoyed this interview and am looking forward to seeing what he creates in the future.
