E4: Sneakers & Coffee (with Ian Williams of Deadstock Cafe & Gallery)

On this episode of Racist Sandwich, we talk with sneaker maven Ian Williams, who owns and operates Deadstock Coffee, a sneaker-themed coffee shop in downtown Portland. We discuss what it means to take up space, why sneaker culture is integral to urban life, the ways in which Portland has changed since Ian's childhood, and the whiteness of the coffee scene here. And of course, a little bit about basketball too!

Produced by Alan Montecillo. Music by AF the Naysayer and Blue Dot Sessions.
