Jason Hammel

1. The HBO series, Rome. "It's smart. It's sexy. It's sad. It's hopeful. We watch an episode every night. We were not the first civilization, and we will not be the last."
2. Omnivores Dilemma by Michael Pollan. "This is everything you want to know about our industrial food system. I hope you like corn. I'm continually in the process of changing my eating habits."

3. Covers of the song "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen. "My favorite so far is by Jeff Buckley. A beautiful song...you just let it come out."
4. My Girls. "I got three. We're together all the time."
5. Cohiba Robustos. "It's an old man's habit, so I won't explain it until I get there and fully understand it. It has something to do with taking the time."
Jason Hammel is one-half of the band Mates of State with Kori Gardner. Their new album, re-arrange us, was released last week.
