Welcome back! After an unfortunate hiatus (I moved, among other things) the podcast returns! This time I talked with local photographer Ryan Jones about managing a photography business and finding time to work on more personal creative work.
Teresa Flores has lately split her time between grad school in Los Angeles and coming back to Fresno and we talked about the obvious, and not so obvious differences between the two. Also, downtown and the Fulton Mall came up, along with discussions about Judy Chicago's Fresno connection.
This time I had a chat with Josh Tehee, the brains behind Fresno Famous, and local band It'll Grow Back. We talked a bit about how Fresno has changed in the last few years, and some of the more civic an political problems that may have held back the development of Fresno's creative scene.
Episode 11! This time I talked with an old friend, Aurora Pringle (known as Aurora Lady in the art world) who grew up around Fresno and studied art at Fresno State, and has made the jump down to L.A. to pursue greater artistic opportunities. We talked about making the transition from Fresno to Southern California, Twitter, and tons of other good things!
A few weeks ago I sat down with a pillar of Fresno's music scene, Blake Jones of Trike Shop fame, and we talked about some of the changes that have occurred in Fresno's creative community over the years, and how working in Fresno can open up more doors creatively than it can in bigger cities.
Also, this was recorded prior to the Rogue Festival so ignore the plugs for that, but Blake has tons of new stuff going on!
Currently they're working on raising the funds for a tour of England in May! You can help them out with that at their Kickstarter.com page.
Sorry for the small hiatus! But the podcast is back, and this time I talked with Jefferson Beavers, who is very involved in the community in several ways, including volunteering with KFSR Radio, Fresno Filmworks and many others.
