    Episode 3: Around The World In 80 Toys with Jerry Business - S1E03

    Fond of toys? A fan of photography? You'll love “Around the World in 80 Toys,” a clever collection of guerrilla-style toy photos shot on iPhone. Each picture showcases a rare, interesting and vintage toy from popular culture in an actual and distinct locale. “Around the World in 80 Toys” offers a creative and au courant look at a global and visual travelogue.


    Join Clay and Jerry as they travel from the punk rock days of The Rat to the hills of San Francisco in a conversation about Jerry's career as a creative, the importance of a punctuated "Thank You", Bill Weld being a Dead Head, morgue visits, Bullitt, Shooting Small and how we are merely the custodians of the material things surrounding us.
