Sheep and I sit down for some coffee after a punk show. We talk about art and what it means to the two of us sitting at the table.

Back to the Fire ep9 w/ Jeff & Bob

Host: Kily Payne
Guests: Jeff Not Bombs, Bob

In this Episode I talk with my friends Jeff and Bob. Two influences to my political views. I feel like the three of us stand out as examples of what it means to be ‘radical’ coming from three different generations. These two are always educating themselves and others about what is happening in the world. We cover current events, recent history, eventually delving deeper.

Back to the Fire Ep.5 w/ Sheep Sheers

Host: Kily Payne
Guest: Sheep Sheers

Sheep is one in a billion, Much like Dr Gonzo from Fear and Loathing ” Hes One of God’s own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. ” which really is a shame because I think the world would be a better place with more people like sheep, or at the very least a lot more interesting.

We talk about walking through cemeteries, urban exploration, salvia divinorum, horror tripping, art, and then circle back around to clowns again.
