Jazz Cabbage is a limited run podcast series from WBGO Studios exploring the cultural intersection of jazz and cannabis. From how the marginalization of "viper" culture inspired improvisation and integration in the early jazz scene, to the federal government's relentless targeting of jazz musicians as part of its Reefer Madness-inspired eradication campaign.
Along the way, we'll hear directly from musicians, scientists, scholars, cultural icons, cannabis entrepreneurs (then and now) and the vipers themselves in their own words.
Hosted by Nicole Sweeney (host of Lights Out on WBGO), and cannabis author/historian David Bienenstock, Jazz Cabbage is no longer in production.
The musical theme for Jazz Cabbage was composed and performed by acclaimed drummer, songwriter and producer Nate Smith.
