The Deep Americana podcast has been focused on breaking bad barriers of "isms." The first season delved into mental illness and disability, as well as individual methods of coping. Season two delves into immigration, how covid-19 has disrupted lives, and frank discussions on institutional and personal racism. With Season three, Deep Americana takes on new hosts and topics. I'm developing new guest hosts, bringing back friends, and broadening the focus. Here's to another great season, glad you all are enjoying this. With all of the podcast episodes the point is the conversation and we tend to move away from scripted formats. The Deep Americana team is driven to help regular people find ways to communicate their own experiences.

S03E14: Printmaker Tom Huck on art as business
Ray interviews master printmaker Tom Huck on art, politics, satire, prints, and business. This is a raw interview presented because sometimes the conversation is more important than the quality of the audio. The phone is cracked, and it's leaking radiation that the microphone picked up during the recording. But Tom Huck's work is phenomenal and you need to see it.
