The Abstract Painters

December 13th, 2021

Another compilation episode, this one with abstract painters. I have spoken to many types of painters over the years but the abstract painters hold a special sense of mystery for me. They approach painting in a manner that is very different from how I approach it. I have always been extremely curious about their process. What is especially amazing about many abstract painters is often they are very linear and analytical in their regular lives.

Science is Beautiful

November 22nd, 2021

A Ph.D. Chemist, a punk rock guitar player, and a tick-tocer with millions of views… I know this sounds like the start of a joke (where they all walk in a bar), but this one person; one amazing person. Karen McFarlane Holman is all of these, plus she has a couple of Ted Talks too. We got to speak about one of my favorite topics - science, and the intersection of science with creativity.
