Waddup butterbeans! It’s Tommy “Teebs” Pico and we’ve got a great episode of Junk ready and waiting for you. This week we bring you an unlikely band tee worn thin with familial affection, a broken lamp that illuminates far-flung junk economies, and a Prince tambourine that shows us not just our relationship to junk, but how junk can make us look differently at our relationships. Victoria Ruiz is an activist and musician, front person for the band Downtown Boys. Jenny Zhang writes poetry, fiction, and non-fiction—most recently the short story collection Sour Heart. Nichole Perkins co-hosts BuzzFeed’s Thirst Aid Kit and authored the brand spankin’ new poetry collection Lilith, But Dark. Followed up, as always, with a short excerpt from my book Junk. Brought to you by Tin House Books.
