First, we pay tribute to the late, great, Neal Casal. Then a chat with old friend and deadhead, the host of Coming Out Of The Emerald Closet Podcast, Chris Hebbe. We wrap it all up with some Grateful Dead.
Coming Out Of The Emerald Closet which meets at the intersection of social justice and cannabis legalization. Chris Hebbe is also one of the guys who took our host to his first Grateful Dead show. Stories abound and lots of music lies ahead.

Losing Neal Casal is heartbreaking on a number of levels. His guitar chops and songwriting never failed to delight and his natural affinity for the sound and spirit of the Grateful Dead were, of course, a huge inspiration here at BdP headquarters.
He will be missed.
