Episode 19 - @Max.Bon


Kitty and Kevin welcome Sony Alpha shooter, Max Bon, back to the show. Max was the subject of our very first episode, but the sound/editing on that first show was so bad that we took it down at some point. This was not the fault of Max, of course. We just didn't know what we were doing. (Thanks to all of you who made it through those first few epis and are still listening to the show!) Max shares a few crazy stories about his urbex adventures with us. These stories include some sketchy moments in an old NATO bunker where the walls are covered with mushrooms, dodging workers in an abandoned subway tunnel in Barcelona, crawling on a bone-covered floors in the Parisian Catacombs, and much more! Max and Kevin take over the show somewhere around 36-38 minutes, and we'll all want to jump on a plane to Paris by the end of the show.
