    Sooo ... We're Taking A (Mini) Break

    Yes, it's true. We've decided to take a brief hiatus for the rest of the summer. We get it, you're deeply heartbroken. This must be the saddest news you've heard all day. But really, what is life without Fresh Mix Fridays?!?
    Okay, so maybe you're not hung up on this announcement. And neither are we because we'll be back ... eventually ... like in October. In the meantime, listen to some of our older episodes. We got over 50 of them!! And while you're at it, share it with a friend or a fellow Floridian. That way, by the time October comes around, they'll be a Fresh Mixer like you.
    In all seriousness, thank you for your listenership, we really appreciate it. And we're STOKED for what's ahead on Florida's Fresh Mix Podcast!

    How Popular 90s Cartoons Inspired Graphic Designer Carly Berry of Tallahassee

    How Popular 90s Cartoons Inspired Graphic Designer Carly Berry of Tallahassee

    It's okay to be weird. It's totally cool ... seriously though! Think of all the strange cartoons from back in the day. "Ren & Stimpy" was WEIRD. "Spongebob Squarepants" was WEIRD. "Rugrats," "CatDog," and "The Angry Beavers" were all super WEIRD. And, let's face it, the creators of those incredibly iconic and innovative shows must have been pretty odd, but we love them for that.
    Today's guest has been a fan of all those cartoons since she was a kid, and those weirdo (genius) creators have since inspired her to pursue her artistry. Carly Berry is a talented artist, graphic designer, and entrepreneur. She's the Founder of it's not that weird, an online store featuring her graphic designs on shirts, tote bags, stickers, and magnets. Carly tells Gerard about her favorite 90s cartoons and how they've influenced her illustrations and personality. Plus, she explains how she made "one second every day" videos for 6 years! Listen in and learn something new today.
