One of my favorite thing about pop culture journalism is getting the opportunity to speak to some of the amazing people who define my childhood. When I saw that Cheech Marin was bringing his art collection to Odessa, which is part of Marfa Public Radio’s demographics, I immediately jumped on the chance to interview him.

Born in East LA! Cheech and Chong! Shrimp on the Barbie! These films are my childhood.

This phone interview is one of the highlights of my MPR internships.
