Bartending & Street Art - An ASMR with Gretchen Dietz

"Is graffiti art or vandalism? That word has a lot of negative connotations and it alienates people, so no, I don't like to use the word 'art' at all."

While a professional cocktail bartender, this week Gretchen Dietz provides a glimpse into the street art community of Philadelphia, and discusses where the motivation to create comes from.

Guilt About Feeling Happy / Anxiety That It'll End Soon - EP109

Science and Learning with a Touch of A.D.D with Nicholas Piccari - EP104

My Favorite Podcast / An Articulate Review – EP101

“You can't explain, man, what's going on in your brain. You can't tell somebody what's happening, what's going on in your-” … “Why don't you just try?” HOLY COW we did it. 100 episodes. In this episode we take a look back at the highs and lows over the past 2 years.
