Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 64: Dandy Harris

With all that’s going on in the world lately, I decided to lengthen today’s show in hopes of bringing you something else to focus on and hopefully a few laughs as well. Today on the show is Dandy Harris (co-owner of 510 skateshop) discussing growing up in Northern California, meeting her future husband and opening a successful skate shop together in the heart of Berkeley, the Travis Scott Dunks rage, Fugazi at Dolores Park, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s at Bottom of the Hill, a call from Max Schaaf, donating to Treasure Island’s DIY and more. Oh, and “Dogs eat their own shit—we’re doing the cockroach yeah! ”
