Wanz and Heidi are running for healthy boobs! Translation: Michael Wansley and Heidi May visited me in the Jack Studio this weekend, to talk about a very good cause, The Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure, coming up on June 1st. Don’t miss it, it’s a fantastic Seattle event.

Michael Wansley, who goes by Wanz, is the Seattle man behind the hook in the song ‘Thrift Shop’ by local rap icon Macklemore. (“This is F***ing Awesome…”) A few months ago he was working at a tech job. Today, he’s singing on the country’s number one song.

Heidi May is a local broadcaster in Seattle. Both have been affected by breast cancer. Michael’s mother is a double survivor, meaning she was diagnosed twice with breast cancer and survived both times. Heidi was diagnosed and underwent a mastectomy 5 years ago and is doing very well.

In our candid and hilariously disorganized interview, we talk about their stories of survival, about Wanz’s life leading up to his sudden fame thanks to Mr. Macklemore, and his own new music. Enjoy:
