The host of WNYC’s Micropolis series, Arun Venugopal, interviews Eric Aleman, a barber at King of Kings Barber Shop in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Eric talks about how hairstyles have changed in his years as a barber and how gentrification is changing the conversation in his shop. Also, Eric discusses his role as a therapist for some clients and why they trust him with their secrets and sharp objects. In a Slate Plus extra, Aleman talks about how to not be a nightmare of a client and what he believes is at the root of the beard revival.
