The “J” stands for Joseph, he goes by Joey, and he’s currently the Road Manager for Leonard Cohen’s Old Ideas World Tour. He’s been on the road for a long, long time now, and it was really interesting to grill him on the years-long path that led to his present employment.

I spent some time gushing about Leonard Cohen, as I am wont to do, but we eventually moved on to talk about the evolution of photography, attention and of course, some of the coolest links of the week.

Thanks to Joey for making the time to chat with me from a hotel room while he’s on the road! Check out the latest episode at 5by5.
