Jarrett Quon is our guest this episode! Los Angeles in tha house!
We talk about the fallacy of "talent" and the hard-workin fun-work of practice and learning and practicing some more.
Rob wears his arm out drilling holes. Jarrett asks what a swimming pool, BBQ grill, and water bottle have in common. Taylor hones his routing and printing skillz! Oh, and ABOLISH ICE.
We also talk to Jarrett about his experiences with the Glowforge laser cutter.

No guest this week, just Taylor and Rob holding down the fort. Very handy in case a strong wind comes along with its mind set on blowing the fort away. We talk about the art of redundancy. Rob believes no baseball cap should have that little rope in between the cap part and the brim. Rob is also wowed by Taylor's awesome Adobe Illustrator skillz!
Taylor breaks down the cool differences between copperplate etching and woodblock printing techniques and he shares his 4 Horseman of the Trumpist Apocalypse shudder . Terry Gross is pretty cool. Rob digs though his tools to find the ones critical to the taking apart of things.
Thanks to Kelly Marie Martin for the challenge!
