Rob and Taylor tackle the Marathon challenge! They dig into the complexities of data storage and archiving. We creative people who document our work in photos, videos, and text. It's a huge pile of digital stuff! We decided to converse three separate times as we tackled the worlds of atx, microatx, minitx, drive shucking, mdfind, RAID, NAS, DAS, VPN, and file recovery! Taylor got called a FIP.

Sara Schnadt is our guest this week! Los Angeles in the house!
Sara, Taylor and Rob talk about tackling things we don't want to tackle. We also chat about collaborating with non-artists and merging the work-life with the art-life. Mirrors are pretty cool, even in the 21st Century. It seems Colonel Sanders had a proclivity for the pistols. We also fit Daredevil and Systems Engineering into the conversation... somehow!
Taylor decides he should really get his archive situation in order before entropy wins the battle. Sara shares the thinking and re-thinking she's been doing on her art practice after multiple moves, life changes and health hurdles. Rob spends two weeks creating a new sandbox for himself and decides he needs more road trash and hot pink in his work. WARNING: The phrase "mood boards" was used more than once during the recording of this episode.
Also, it is our 20th episode! Thanks to all our previous guests! You can hear a brief update from Meghan Trainor, Huong Ngo, Dan Bustillo, Federico Tobon, Matt Steinke, Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen (the Root Simple posse!), Violet Juno and Ranjit Bhatnagar on this episode!
