Rituals make up a big part of our lives. From attending religious services to how we get ready in the morning…we’ll take you through some of the daily practices that make NYC tick. We hear how a record store — in operation since 1968 — opens with its own ritual every morning in Brooklyn. We also visit a Halloween party where bike clubs from all over the country come to show off and celebrate their love for two-wheeled vehicles.Vodou priest and musician Neg Mawon joins us to talk about the religious and cultural traditions that have been a part of his family for generations. And, Sam Saffery of the band Bird Courage joins us in the studio for a live set.
