    Astral Corgi Ego Death w/Holiday Black

    Astral Corgi Ego Death w/Holiday Black

    This week we’re joined by our friend, Holiday Black. Holiday is a concept-forward art director with a passion for youth culture, creativity, and their two cats. They’ve been art directing for the past four years, and have had the opportunity to work on alcohol, fast food, cars, fashion, and footwear. Outside of work, Holiday can be found crafting, looking for hot springs, reading a book, or googling whether or not mercury is in retrograde. You can find Holiday’s work at www.holiday.black.



    We talk with Holiday about their work, royal photoshop fails, corgi eugenics, and design as a portal to spiritual ego death and ultimately enlightenment.



    Thanks for listening! Ciao!

    Bathed in Bisexual Lighting

    Bathed in Bisexual Lighting

    This week we spend our life savings on numerological sports betting meal deal life hacks at whop.com; and we quit school to work on our sports betting meal deal life hack startup with a grant from Molly Mielke’s Moth Fund; and then we bathe in the bisexual lighting cast by a full screen view of Monotype’s neuroscience type reports. Turns out we were right all along!

    “Don't Drink That!” with special guest David Chathas

    “Don't Drink That!” with special guest David Chathas

    This week we talked to David Chathas: a graphic designer, type designer, educator, sometimes artist who would have rather been a UFC fighter. We talked to Dave about lots of things you can and cannot drink: Bud Light (comma) the history of, high end baby skin care products, energy drinks that look like automotive fluids, and automotive fluids that look like energy drinks—we also discussed the etiquette of lurking online, AND the woke Kansas state license plate fiasco (brought to you by Canva)!

    Liquid Metal AI Sea Slugs

    Liquid Metal AI Sea Slugs

    This week we delve into the odd history of fax memes; we try and see if there is any there there in the Figma state of the designer report; we learn about the weird things people are trying to do to sea slugs; we visit Kim K in her 7-11/office at the top of the Empire State Building, and we try and get our dating-app eggs to hatch before they're cooked. It is so confusing! Thanks for joining us!

    Carnival Optimism with B3n J4n Az and M2c A7n

    This week we look into the medieval street scene that is the internet and ask ourselves, where did all these jesters come from? And why are several of them named Brian Jordan Alvarez? AND we take a trip to the best of all possible techno-optimistic worlds with Marc A-seven-n.
