Art Juggernaut Program

The ART JUGGERNAUT PROGRAM is an ART PODCAST tracking the f_cked-up visual life and mind of COJO ART JUGGERNAUT, a Gen-X Artistic Pop-Zeitgeist trudging the streets of Manhattan (Philly, Vegas, Jersey, Bklyn, etc...), gnawing on the big rotten apple for all it's worth, and getting drunk on the cider. . . tagging along as always is his muse, the ever adorable, amazingly talented singer /actress MOLLY ROBERSON. Celebrity encounters, industry parties, the ins and outs of the art world, paparazzi, models, and deranged homeless people bathing in their own urine. No topic is safe, and the unusual is commonplace. . . www.ArtJuggernaut.com

It is considered a seminal work in the artist's progression.
