Today, Osiris Media launches season one of Comes A Time, a conversational interview series with musician Oteil Burbridge and comedian Mike Finoia. Oteil and Mike welcome guests from a variety of backgrounds—musicians, comedians, civic and spiritual leaders, activists, journalists, environmentalists, and others to discuss the road that led us to where we are today, and where we go from here.
All episodes will be available on audio and video. You can listen to episode 1 now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and the Osiris website, and watch episode 1 on YouTube. Episodes 2, 3 and 4 will be released Friday, August 7.
Comes A Time aims to bring “common sense back to the people” through an open dialogue about the important issues of our time. As the song says, “You gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe. Don’t give it up, you’ve got an empty cup that only love can fill.”
