Episode 286 - Oliver Francis joins the show! The melodic hip-hop/trap/pop/punk star started out skateboarding, listening to punk rock and obsessing over alternative culture while growing up in the very conservative Midwestern landscape of Ashland, MO. After trying to start emo bands and realizing he couldn't rely on other people, he started a solo project. Doing everything himself, from writing, recording, performing, producing and even shooting and editing his own videos, Oliver is one of the most DIY artists out there. We talk about his conservative but cool upbringing, working as a janitor before making it, and just how much fun it is to be one of his friends.
