For the 2nd anniversary of the show, my friend Jenna Klein and I swing by Ryan Bradley's home. Ryan recently moved in to his home in Park Slope with his gf Emily. Ryan and Emily quickly discovered suspicious activity in home that cannot be explained and it appears they have a ghost with a small bladder living with them. We discuss his ghost, crystals and crystal skulls, aliens, herbal medicine, taking responsibility for your life, and marketing to the new age.

Though his work he has collaborated with the greatest musicians and gathered insight and wisdom about creativity, art and music. Today I sit down with him in the East Village to talk about art.
