Back of House / ep. 010 / Baby Yoda news, Zero Waste Instant Coffee, Mandy Moore links w/ LA Coffee Shop w/ Rebecca Smith of Armistice Coffee Seattle
We always look forward to our yearly Seattle trip for many reasons, but topping that list is of course the coffee scene up here. If you love coffee and still haven't visited the mecca of US café culture, we highly recommend it. During last year's trip we stumbled upon (literally) Armistice Coffee in the Eastlake neighborhood, which at the time was still a fairly young shop. The moody vibe automatically lured us in and the cortado was fucking on point, not to mention the distance from our Seattle outpost was 2 blocks therefore it quickly became our SPOT during the 2 séjour. During this time we had the opportunity of meeting Rebecca Smith, the owner of Armistice Coffee, we knew she was somebody we eventually wanted to invite as guest on Back of House. Fast Forward to a year later and Armistice Coffee is well settled into the neighborhood whilst Rebecca is crushing it with new location in the Roosevelt area that's a mix between a coffee shop + cocktail bar (DOPE!); all this in a highly male dominated industry and we have to point out that she chose to do this in the city where she grew up.

Back of House / ep. 009 / SUPREME Oreo Cookie hype, Hockey news from the 6 and Travis Scott's new Nike SB Dunk w/ Jam Zumel, Erwin Hines and Chef Philip Esteban
It's great to see both San Diego locals and transplants come together to create a Tour de Force in our our City and to do it with such genuine passion and a humble approach that raised the bar for what community building should stand for. Where to begin with this trio is super hard because they are literally doing loads of cool shit non-stop. We managed to get them on the pod and not only that we had a surprise guest that we had to mic up (Gracias Chef!). On episode 009 of Back of House we sit down with Jam Zumel, Erwin Hines and Chef Philip Esteban on an episode that was so much fun to record, we hope to enjoy listening as much as we did recording.

Back of House / ep. 008 / Aimé Leon Dore collabs w/ Porsche, How to ship back a Mattress and Space X enters tourism with Future's Past
The Future's Past due that is Alyssa Mopia + Adrian Gutierrez (aka Fides Rex), are never not on the go. Last year had some setbacks but it seems that recent moves and the constant drive to keep learning and growing has Alyssa and Adrian en route to soon pulling up to HQ in that 911. We also need to mention that both are producing some dope content (shout out Motivation Mondays and Coffee + Convos Pod) which we recommend you peep out. We crack open some Topos to catch up on culture, moves and of course music and food.

Back of House / ep. 007 / Billie Eilish drops new BOND film theme song, Uber goes old school, and Bloomberg hires Jerry Media with Coast to Costa
We met Natalie and Andrew back in 2015 when they were guiding curious Angelinos down to Tijuana and Valle de Guadalupe for Day Trips centered around food, culture and of course a little vino + mezcal. They were calling themselves "Coast to Costa" and at the time were exclusive to only bi-national trips between California + Baja. Fast forward 5 years and the Highland Park (Los Angeles) based couple have now both left their day jobs to go 100% on the dream of building one of the most experiential travel companies around. We sit down for a little Sobre Mesa and get Debriefed about what's in store for the homies in 2020 from trips to Cuba, Peru to new itineraries dropping soon.  Sobre Mesa: Billie Eilish drops new BOND film theme song, Uber goes old school, and Bloomberg hires Jerry Media to make him cool... – GUESTS: Natalie + Andrew / @coasttocosta / Coast to Costa HOSTS: G.

Back of House / ep. 006 / Bieber drops AR filter tracklist, NIKE Tokyo Olympic Fits and Padres talk with Bradford Lynn
As an artist, choosing to cultivate and invest in your hometown's culture scene is always a tough decision, especially when the art capitals of New York and Los Angeles are calling. Cue in Bradford Lynn, born and raised in San Diego's South Bay, schooled in Los Angeles, artist and faithful San Diego Padres fan; had a great time catching up with one of my favorite local artists and overall one of the dopest humans in San Diego. This week we will look at Justin Bieber's AR filter tracklist drop on Instagram,  a first look at Team USA's official NIKE Tokyo Olympic Fits and Padres talk prior to the 2020 Season. We'll also see what's cooking over at Bradford Lynn HQ 🤘🏽 Let's get it! – HOSTS: Bradford Lynn / @bradfordlynn / Artist G.

Back of House / ep. 005 / The Motorola RAZR comeback, Louis Vuitton's first restaurant and Pepsi's new coffee flex with Will Remsbottom of Scrimshaw Coffee
We all started the 26th of January 2020 on a very sad note with the news of Kobe Bryant's passing. As a generation that grew up with Kobe in their lives, we had to show our respects to the Bryant family and the victims of the tragedy that took place Sunday morning in Calabasas, California. In true Mamba Mentality we decided to continue with recording this show despite our spirits being weighed down by the tremendous sadness of the day's events. For episode 005 of Back of House, we invited our good friend Will Remsbottom of Scrimshaw Coffee. What started as a DIY project for Will and his partner in 2017, has now become a local staple and a must stop for any coffee connoisseur visiting San Diego. With the newly launched lunch menu and new collaborations on the 2020 radar, we sat down with Will for some quality Back of House time over Topo Chicos. This week we will look at Motorola's resurrection of the iconic RAZR silhouette, Louis Vuitton's move into the hospitality world and Pepsi's weird flex on the world of coffee.
