On this episode of Train Wrecks, Dustin welcomes Joshua Glazer, the host from the Rave Curious Podcast. The two friends have teamed up for a bit of cross-promotion, where their recent 2 hour chat was split in half to comprise an episode for each podcast. Joshua’s ‘Rave Curious’ took the first hour, where they went in-depth about first meeting each other, Dustin’s rise as a globally renowned DJ, and hauling speakers! Even if Zahn drives you nuts, we still highly encourage you to check out the Rave Curious podcast on iTunes if you’re interested in hearing Josh interview legendary A-list DJs.
