Debbie Chachra is our guest this episode! Boston in tha house!
“The Falsely Accused” is our challenge this episode! Thanks to F. Douglas Brown for the challenge!
Taylor creates Castle Gradenstein (an FPG?) and we talk about the weirdness that is grading. Debbie investigates the cost of false positives, atypicality and the emotional weight of not knowing what to do next. Rob takes a thing apart as a meditation on women's liberation, invention and the master's tools.
We also talk about making beer, useful design feedback, David Milgaard's innocence, witches, wooden fire ladders, and poutine... annnnnnd Stan Lee.
