Through 200 episodes of the podcast, we sat down with so many legends and heard so many legendary stories along legendary journeys. Today, we gave you our story (thanks to an excellent friend and excellent interviewer @nomizeichner) and we were sent note after note after note in response to our journey. Here’s just one, but to everyone who came away from this episode inspired or energized or more informed or feeling damn good for any reason, that, to us, is the greatest. Thank you for listening.


200+ guests, 200+ times we’ve cleaned our apartment. @ your favorite episodes so they see this.


This week on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, we mark the 200th episode of our podcast by telling our story. Each week for over three years, we've conversed with artists, producers, writers, executives, comedians, actors, on-air personalities and dope humans, diving into their ups, their downs, their successes and their vulnerable moments, ultimately celebrating each guest's incredible journey. On Episode 200, we asked the great writer and editor Naomi Zeichner (formerly the EIC of The Fader; currently at YouTube) to stop by the Upper West Side to interview us. We discussed how our family, creativity, day camp, earnestness, the internet, G-Funk, The Office, Kanye West, Consequence, Lyor Cohen, Bun B, DJ Green Lantern, Miss Info, HBO, MTV, NahRight, love and loss shaped our lives and our decade-long-plus career. Listen now on iTunes and SoundCloud and everywhere else!!

We love a good journey. Whether discussing it on air, or at a cookout, or watching it on screen, we love tracking the different stops and seeing growth and achievement. Our friend @rembert loves a good journey too. Hell, he once spent an entire summer documenting his solo journey across and around the United States for Grantland. As Rem knows, it’s not just the end of the story that matters, but rather the chapters that make the journey and make the man. Rem’s trip has included so many great moments before today, and his story is far from over, but since we’re here, we’re gonna celebrate the fact that REMBERT BROWNE WROTE THIS WEEK’S COVER STORY FOR TIME MAGAZINE ON SPIKE LEE. Onward and upward; we’re so proud of you, Rem.
