Summary: A podcast about the pursuit of farfetched ideas, unusual aspirations, or that perfect pair of sneakers. In Season One, we explore the fan base of the skateboard and clothing brand, Supreme. Made on-site in New York City throughout the fall of 2017. Episodes feature on-the-street and sit-down interviews with devoted fans. Starting with the first release of the season in August, on to the opening of the new store in Brooklyn in October, and all the way to the final drop of the season in December.
The first season of Relentless and the fall 2017 season of Supreme both draw to a close. In this episode, reflections about Supreme fandom and more stories from the line, including Maddy’s unexpected discovery of another fashion subculture, and Barbara Kruger sets up her own skate shop in SoHo. Music by BSNYEA, Stripe By Tommy, Taj Mahal, Khalil Almighty, and Angel from Building Beats.
The demand for Supreme far exceeds the supply. If you are willing and able to pay extra, you can probably get just what you want -- from resellers. Depending on your perspective, resellers are either the heroes of today’s story, connecting customers to the things they want, or they are the villains, depriving customers of direct access to the merchandise. Whether friend or foe, are resellers fans? Music by Lawrence, Stripe By Tommy, BSNYEA, and DJ Synchro, from Building Beats.
Supreme fans from all over the world love this brand because it is just so popular. They love the hype. Others keep coming back because it reminds them of the past, a welcome sense of nostalgia. More interviews on the streets of New York City and an ongoing conversation with creative consultant Curtains. Music by Brian, Khalil Almighty, and BNSYEA from Building Beats.
