SLOMO sits down with Cantore and shares his story of walking away from a successful medical practice to pursue his true passion: inline skating in a slow, meditative motion on Ocean Front Walk in Pacific Beach every day (for decades.) Since going off the grid, SLOMO has become a local icon with a worldwide fanbase thanks to the release of an amazing 2013 documentary by Josh Izenberg.
Lam, known today as the “ultimate wing man,” restauranteur, surfer, speaker and philanthropist joins Cantore to talk about surfing at Kelly Slater's Surf Ranch, moving to So Cal from Brazil in the 70s, and starting Wahoo's Fish Tacos with his younger brothers 30 years ago.
Cantore opens the show talking about a common thread that he's noticed between his closest friends.
Cantore opens the show talking about ripping his board shorts while surfing and showing his junk to the entire line-up. He also shares an observation about the entitlement some people have after hitting cross-walk lights.
Cantore visits TV personality, author, and cook-extraordinaire, Sam the Cooking Guy, at his new restaurant, Not Not Tacos, opening this week in the Little Italy Food Hall with hospitality group Grain & Grit Collective. Not Not Tacos will serve up genre-bending fare that pushes the envelope of culinary creativity with tacos that are big, bold, full of flavor and made from things not normally found in authentic Mexican food (looking at you meatloaf, salmon & pastrami.)
Before introducing us to the restaurant, Sam opens up to Cantore about his insecurities and the pressures of coexisting in a modern world that puts so much value on wealth and material items. Also, great discussion about how weed can perpetuate self-doubt.
Director of photography and marine biologist, Richard Fitzpatrick, talks about his new film, Great Barrier Reef, opening this week at the Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. What started as a kid capturing sharks on the reef with his buddies has turned into a career as an Emmy® Award-winning cinematographer who has shot more than 50 films for clients such as the BBC, National Geographic, and Discovery Channel.
Cantore opens the show talking about 4th of July in the neighborhood and how he's not afraid to beam kids with water balloons. While thanking sponsors, Cantore discusses how new cannabis laws and regulations have created a bottle neck effect at local dispensaries.
