UNDER THE COVERS with Claire Connors, Episode 7 features Part 1 of an exclusive 2-part interview with special guest STEVE BLOOM, former longtime editor of High Times Magazine and publisher of CelebStoner.com.

NYC-based top editor/publisher and author STEVE BLOOM was with High Times Magazine for nearly three decades.  In this episode, he talks about his journalistic background as a music reviewer in the ‘70s and ‘80s at Rolling Stone and many other top titles, to his early interest in gaming magazines dating back to the early ‘80s…and of course, the candid native New Yorker does a deep dive with Claire into many of the famous (and infamous!) High Times covers that he booked and managed, with hilarious behind-the-scenes stories of the publishing world and of course, its intersection with cannabis and weed culture…including Snoop Dogg’s visit to the High Times offices back in the day, Oscar-winner Francis McDormand (yes, she partakes), the surprisingly professional Cypress Hill cover, a cover-that-never-happened with Sarah Silverman and many more insider tales of the bygone days of high-flying print magazines…
