The True Meaning of BSing

Sean K = me, Sean Kneese. I originally started this podcast as simply a space for traditional interviews with artists and other creative types. As I started bringing on increasing numbers of diverse guests, the show organically developed its own theme: I converse with people who think and live outside the box and are pursuing their creative and intellectual passions. They are non-conformists: people who go against the grain and follow their own path. I also like to provide a platform for opinions that aren't often heard in the mainstream media, and prefer to keep a conversational feel to my interviews. I enjoy talking to all different kinds of people from all walks of life and I hope that my podcast can show that we all have more in common than we think, even if it might not always seem that way on the surface.

Episode 45: Maria Alvarez and Natascha Beck of the all-girl punk band Jigsaw Youth

In this episode Sean Kneese talks to Maria Alvarez and Natascha Beck of the New York based all girl punk band Jigsaw Youth. Jigsaw Youth are influenced by the Riot Grrrl movement, a feminist punk rock movement that started in the 1990s with bands like Bikini Kill and Babes in Toyland. Though the band is influenced by this music, they play their own style and do not wish to be labeled as just another Riot Grrrl band. The band talks about the punk scene in New York and New Jersey, their experience playing shows, bands that have influenced them, how they became interested in punk music, and their goals as musicians. Other topics include Kim Kardashian trying to be punk, the music industry, house shows, "fashion punks", and more.
