Vaccinated Measure P Dreams

I'll warn ya straight up: We spend some time talking about our hair. Don't worry, after that, we get back to our normal Fresno banter. 

We talk about people getting vaccinated around town and what that means with things opening up. Is there live music in Fresno's near future? What thing would you keep after the Pandemic is over? Measure P is official now so what would be our dream use of Measure P Money? Yes we are still talking about the Tower Theatre and Adventure Church and we bring back our old friend: Bike Lanes!

Fireworks, Fairs and Fresno [Flowing With Famous July 2020]

Flowing_With_Famous_Fires_6zenu.jpg

Hope you made it through the battlefield that was Fourth of July in Fresno. It was pretty crazy. But crazy enough to warrant fireworks being banned in the future?

We are all still battling with living life in Fresno with COVID-19, is everything as bad as it seems? Probably.

Plus, the Fresno Fair is planning to go on in October. Should they be? When are we going to be able to do things again?

We'll take on this and more in this month's Flowing With Famous!

Flowing In A Bizarre New Fresno

APRIL_2020.jpg

We have returned to a different world. We discussed what it is like living in the new normal of a locked-down Fresno. And we catch up with last month's election of a new Fresno Mayor and talk about a new Fresno creative project that has ties to the podcast, called Fresno Famoso.

Plus, new music from Macondo!

Failure In Fresno

flowing_alpha_beta.jpeg

We don't like doing it, but do it we must; this month we talk about some recent failures in the city of Fresno, why it happened and maybe what we can do to prevent more.

Also, we have an interview with a local photographer, Steven Sanchez, about his new book, Rock & Roll For Everybody.
[INTERVIEW START: 28:00 ENDS 44:30]

Play some music from locals, The Dying Suns.

Finish off with our favorite topic: new restaurants!

Fresno Christmas Wishes and Swedefest

Swedefest_2019.jpg

We love our yearly get together with Bryan and Roque to talk about their annual (and unique to Fresno) film festival at Tower Theatre called, Swede Fest.

Roque and Bryan also talk some classic Flowing Fresno stuff with us. The big question Josh likes to ask Fresno this time of year is "what would you like Santa to bring for Fresno this year?" The answers may surprise.

Also, where is a good place to shoot some video or film in the Fresno area? Is Cross Streets coming back? Have you been to the new spot cool spot in the Tower District? All this a much more this month on Flowing.

Don't forget Band Of The Episode: Scoundrel.

*Sorry for the sometimes lame sound quality of this episode, it is totally Mikey's fault.
