BRC and Friends is a 30-minute Google Hangout where I chat with friends and adventurers from around the interwebs. Each episode includes conversations about one of my guests passions, projects or area of expertise, a current events or two and we end with five random questions. This is basically an excuse for me to talk with interesting people about interesting things.
Today on BRC and Friends I spoke with Emily Rice about Killjoy Prophets, Civility, Portland and her love of karaoke.
