Deborah Lader, artist and founder/director of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative is our guest this episode! Chicago in tha house!
Capital is our challenge!
Deborah, Taylor and Rob dive into the joys of music playing and project longevity. Chicago Printmakers just turned 30! We also talk about working in groups (Shout out to the art-making and publishing group Temporary Services) and the creative power of collectivity.
Taylor adds value. Deborah dreams with the fishes. Rob might have the cable you're looking for.

Ranjit Bhatnagar is our guest this week! Brooklyn in the house! We talk about plastic made from blood (hemacite!), seeing faces in things (pareidolia! :-) ), the Church of the SubGenius, redaction, instrument making, and beaver pelts as currency.
Rob tests the flight characteristics of paper and plastic. Ranjit isn't the Smiley Face killer... well... probably isn't. Taylor's project is fire (and electricity)!
Mad props to The KLF. They burned a million quid. We didn't do that. Also, check our all our links. Holy cow!
