Andy Mulkerin is the Pittsburgh City Paper music editor and author of Building a Better Robot: 10 Years of the Mr. Roboto Project.
Andy's story begins here in Western Pennsylvania. He started as a rambunctious youngster at Penn-Trafford, and grew into a sixteen year old "Quiet Drew" working part time at Burger King. He then ventured forth to the University of Pittsburgh blossoming into a young punk rocker with The Independent Media Center spreading his wings at a large protest in Washington, DC.
While we journeyed through his life story, we made a few pit stops to discuss Taylor Swift, the Gaelic language, and why you might want carry your ID with you when you're arrested.
This is another two hour interview. I know, I know! I should cut it down or cut people off at no longer than 90 minutes but... well, you'll see. Andy's story is just too damn compelling!
