This week, we welcome former Grantland writer and New York Times best-selling author Shea Serrano to the Upper West Side! We discussed growing up in San Antonio, camping trips, monster truck rallies, and going from forensic scientist classes to working on a coloring book with Bun B. We talked how he made the transition from school teacher to writer, what made Grantland special, and what Bill Simmons meant to him. All that, plus Tim Duncan, The Rap Yearbook, Cool as Ice, the Houston rap scene, his disdain for J.Cole's music, and so much more!
