The Roots’ lead MC Black Thought (aka Tarik Trotter) and comedian Wyatt Cenac are highly regarded artists and IRL friends. The two intellectual entertainers pivot from the hilarious-- beard grooming and the need for adult playgrounds-- to the serious challenges of sobriety, performance pressure and showbiz.
At On Air Fest, Black Thought and Wyatt sat down for a live recording of Talkhouse, the podcast featuring firsthand perspectives between artists. This conversation was hosted by Talkhouse's own Elia Einhorn.
