Is this the new format that was spoken of in an earlier episode? If so, this is a real good. There are so many people that you don't hear about that had a huge influence on hip-hop, like Paul C.
Also, if you all are setting up interview formats now, would it be possible to interview Large Professor? This is a guy that I hear mentioned by a lot of NY rappers, but have never heard of outside of that. I feel like he's some sort of shadowy kingmaker in NY hip-hop; like a one-man rap illumanti.

I really enjoy the interview dynamic Jeff and James bring to the table. It's Articulate Cop and Goofy Cop. It makes for a very interesting listen as people react to Jeff's insightful questions and Nocan's weird goofy shit. It was great to hear Monch speak and also Nocan to call him on things he avoided like the breakup of Organied Konfusion.
It's really crazy to think it's been 51 weeks of this show already. I didn't realize it was already there and I look forward to it every week and the phrases "keep it 100" and "shots fired" have entered this rap nerd's lexicon haha.

We're not really doing an official format change, but we'll be recording in the Cosmic Zoo, Nocando's studio from now on. There will be an announcement on the next show.
