Get Up On This: A Little Tribute to My Favorite Podcast

Nearly five years ago, when Max and I met, he introduced me to a podcast that has since become a weekly highlight, paired perfectly with a Tuesday run. I started listening to Get Up On This in New York, and since moving to Berlin, it has remained a constant. For those of you who are interested, the format of the show is simple: two guys with creative backgrounds in music, film, writing, and the sorts, present to us, the listeners, things which are not yet hyped that they think we should get up on. And, every now and then, they dedicate an episode to things that people should get up off. Their picks are often hip hop artists, board games, TV shows, and movies, and also include regional LA picks and entirely random activities and food products.

Sunny Days on Mallorca

A month of intensive German classes paired with a not-so-summery Berlin summer really sweetened the deal that was a week on Mallorca. This well known island, and Ibiza’s trusty brother, is located in the Mediterranean Sea and is the largest of the Balearic islands. It’s part of Spain, but during high season this is hardly apparent as 90% of the inhabitants are German and British tourists. In searching for the right spot to stay on the island, Max and I wanted to have easy beach and hiking access, and to avoid the crazy party scene but still be near a restaurant and bar hub. After deliberation between southeast and northeast parts of the island, we settled on Port de Pollença and couldn’t be happier with our decision.
