Podcasting has expanded the way I research, write, and think about the world. I am super thrilled to share that I am taking over the month of June over at @stateoftheart podcast. I’m speaking with four incredible artists this month on meditations of queerness in anime, manga, film, digital media, comics, and creative coding. Super stoked to be in conversation with Anum Awan, Yasheng She, Breena Nunez, and Lark VCR πŸ₯°πŸ¦„πŸ™ƒπŸŒˆ

You can hear my interview (more like me rambling and going off on tangents) with host Andrew Harmen, I can’t believe how excited I was to speak with him and how much I opened up. πŸ€ͺπŸ˜†πŸ˜€ He was a good sport! Extra special thanks to the SoTA team, Ethan Appleby, Andrew Herman, Vanessa Wilson, Wes Stephens, and Edgar Mojica (who did this AMAZING illo for me πŸ––πŸΎβ™₯οΈπŸ™ƒ)!!

I’m a sucker for interviews. I can’t help it. I find them inspirational (especially when the questions asked get at the why and how of someone’s success story). Artist, Matt Ganucheau, shares all the great stuff with me and I’m seriously grateful for him sharing his wealth of knowledge in arts and technology. Kudos (again) to my artist friend for sharing this latest addition to my essential reading – Substratum. Beautifully designed and well put together, Substratum asks artists about their stories and what they envision in their communities and the world and how arts and technology can affect change. That said, I highly recommend you delve into the space and learn about some really (truly) amazing artists and innovators!!
