The Hank and Herb Show

A podcast that owes its origins to the ongoing dialogue, debate and discussions between Andre Guess and Harun Shabazz over the past 25 years.


The Hank and Herb Show owes its origins in the ongoing dialogue, debate and discussions between Andre Guess and Harun Shabazz that date back to nearly 25 years ago to when they were both doctoral students. One day, Harun “Hank” Shabazz, a lawyer in Baltimore and Andre “Herb” Guess, jokingly called their discourse, the Hank and Herb Show and vowed to one day capture them as a podcast for posterity’s sake.

They finally made good on their promise and invited in another friend and colleague, bassist, bandleader, composer, and educator Kris Funn to join them.

The podcast focuses on current events and topics from the writings of Andre, Harun and Kris which can be found on educated guesses, TheBlackScene.com and Funndamentals.com respectively.
