On this week of Bad For The Community, we're joined by award-winning Boston spoken word artist, Amanda Shea! We kicked off the episode with Amanda speaking on being awarded the inaugural Spoken Word Artist of the Year at the 2022 BMAs (1:00) and the current state of opportunities for spoken artists compared to musicians (19:00). Amanda also spoke on quitting her accounting career to pursue her purpose full-time and the risks/reward that came with that decision (26:00).
Later on in the episode, Rob brought up an issue he had with one of Nate's tweets, which led to a discussion about the impact of inherent misogyny in society (49:00). We later discussed several topics, such as: unlearning negative behaviors and allowing people to redeem themselves (1:00:00), subliminal vs. direct diss tracks (1:20:00), and separating the artist from the art (1:25:00). This episode was full of thoughtful conversations and we had a great time with Amanda. We hope you all enjoy the episode as much as we did!
