I love great production and Portland has a number of producers that speak to my ear. My first guest of 2021 is one of those, but I learned his craft is much deeper than that. We speak on why he titled his first release "Colorblind", his goal to work with all the members of Sandpeople and the importance of using his platform to speak on injustices. Such a great way to kick off the podcast this year! Enjoy episode #111, my conversation with Surebert.
