Why Vanilla Ice?

Yo Vanilla! the Vanilla Ice Podcast started off as an idea over $1 whiskey cocktails at a bar in Seattle, Washington. Some friends and I were talking about an old podcast project that never came to fruition and the idea of doing something new came up. The Freddy Mercury/Mick Jagger duet Under Pressure came on over the house speakers.  We could hear the three women in the next booth discussing that they recognized the song from a sample used in the song Ice Ice Baby and how each of them secretly loved it but couldn’t for the life of them name one other song by Vanilla Ice. Eventually these women were joined by a friend, who they asked to name another song. He replied “Ninja Rap” from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II soundtrack. Having realized that we too couldn’t name more than three songs ourselves, I decided to do an audio deep-dive into the discography of Vanilla Ice and learn along with the listeners all about the living legend that is Robert Van Winkle aka Vanilla Ice.   -TQ
