About episode 2
In this show, we were able to connect with a musician in Greece that we (Beloved Binge) first met when we played a show together in 2006: Pavlos Vigkos aka Paul. He was in the band with the late Tasos of Antistres, a kind and gentle person who left much too early.
We asked Pavlos what Greeks think of the USA, how Greece is doing with COVID, his beginnings in music, what are the essential ingredients to a good life, and more about his musical projects.
I also talk about the debate, election, and how advocating for animals has made me rich as a raccoon.
