ILYSM Ep. 55: Riders Against the Storm on RAS Day; the return of Austin’s Quesoff

Chaka Mpeanaji and Qi Dada are so much more than a local hip hop group.

In this week’s episode of “I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast,” the husband-and-wife team behind Riders Against the Storm joined hosts Tolly Moseley and Addie Broyles to talk about RAS Day, the annual family friendly music festival happening Saturday at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard. With new music coming out this fall, the couple behind the monthly Body Rock dance party talked about their passion for bringing audiences and communities together through movement and music.

You can check also check out a Sound Style feature from Deborah Sengupta Stith about RAS Day that was published this week.

Since 2011, the Quesoff has drawn Austin’s best queso-makers to the Mohawk for the cheesiest party around. Ahead of this year’s contest, co-founder Adi Anand joined Omar and Statesman features editor Sharon Chapman to talk about why the event remains so popular for contestants and attendees.

In this week’s Webb Report, Eric Webb talks to us about a little-known government plot involving our very own Mexican freetail bats, and then he joined the hosts for our recommendations segment called “A Toast.”

Thanks to Amazon Prime, Eric has a new-found appreciation for “The Good Wife,” the CBS show that ran from 2009 to 2016 and is now streaming on Amazon Prime and that he says is perfect blend of prestige TV and the classic legal procedural. Omar saw a recent performance at the Ground Floor Theatre of Raul Garza’s new play, “There and Back,” a multi-decade story on immigration with a powerful ending that he’s still thinking about. Tolly recommended checking out the next ATX Flowdown, a jazz-and-freestyle spoken word show that takes place at various locations around Austin.
