NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tequila Avión today announced its sponsorship of Rich Friend: The Elevated Conversation, a weekly podcast with culture shapers Mark Anthony Green and Matthew Trammell. Focusing on current affairs, lifestyle, music, art, fashion & culture, the podcast hosts an informed discussion as yet unexplored by other programs of its nature. Produced by Loud Speakers Network, the first episode premieres today on SoundCloud & iTunes – featuring Greg Yuna, renowned New York jeweler and designer prominently known as Mr. Flawless.
Mark Anthony Green is a central figure of fashion and artistic exploration as editor for a leading men's publication. Green doubles as a visual artist and critic, bringing that polymath sensibility to Rich Friend. Brooklyn native and music guru Matthew Trammell offers his own distinctive point of view to the weekly show, informed by an impassioned finger on the pulse of music and nightlife culture constantly in flux. The hosts' dynamic – opinionated, enthusiastic and obsessively in the know – stands out as the program's signature calling card.
"The thing about Matt and I is that we're culture junkies. It's the best thing about living in New York City: you don't miss anything," said Mark Anthony Green. "We just wanted to create a place to bring that type of conversation to life, and make sure that if you're listening in, you feel like you're in your living room, hanging out with us. In that sense, Tequila Avión was the perfect partner to help us create that kind of unique piece of programming. They're a forward-thinking brand, always looking to the future, which was super fortunate for what Matt and I were trying to do."
Pour a drink and tune in to a conversation that caters to one or all of your cultural interests: from art to fashion, nightlife and music, food, drinks, travel and more. Green and Trammell's conversational volley is complemented by interviews with special guests as uniquely informed on modern culture as the hosts, including KITH Founder Ronnie Fieg.
Matthew Trammell shared, "I'm just really excited to insult Mark Anthony with an audience. But seriously, things should be fun: it's the kind of podcast I always wanted to hear. One that caters to both ends of culture – kind of snobby and kind of stupid – with weird tangents and guests that are a bit left of the spotlight. …So in that regard, I just think we've got something really special on our hands. And I gotta give a shoutout to Tequila Avión, for both aligning with what Mark Anthony and I are trying to do with this podcast, and for actually letting us do it right."
"When I met Mark Anthony and Matthew we immediately connected and I knew we should become involved," said Ken Austin, founder of Avión Tequila. "They both bring a great deal of knowledge, humility, humor, and passion, which are qualities I appreciate and respect. I look forward to listening and hearing what happens as their podcast evolves and their guests open up in ways we may not expect."
