Ninja AcademyAfter Stuart’s 45 minute in-flight entertainment programming, our plane touches down in the Far East… well… far enough east – New Jersey. We begin our journey diving fist first into the action with Union City multi-instrumentalist, Thirst for Hunger.

You’ll find that today’s episode has quite a bit of an obvious martial arts flair, and it takes us to some unrelated locations like Ireland, Canada, and throughout the States. We ultimately end up on the West Coast in Santa Barbara, CA, where we close out on a mellow meditative note with up-and-coming singer/songwriter Crosby Loggins.

We hope you enjoy the exclusives, classic Kung Fu/Ninjitsu dialogue, and a full hour long ride through a theatrically charged show featuring some of the best music being released worldwide, as well as the corniest cinematic dialogue we could get our hands on. Enjoy, and as always, please support the artists within.
