    Ep. 21 — Charles Burt

    Ep. 21 — Charles Burt

    Episode 21 of Forging Flame is a veritable cornucopia of inspiration and valuable perspective, thanks to the conversation Nick and Ryan had with this week’s guest, Charles Burt! Charles and the guys get into his military experience, the intersection of science and spirituality, and the recent recurring theme of art therapy!
    Charles Burt is a 20-year Army veteran, and an incredible painter, turning photo-realistic, classical still-life work into portals of memory, encapsulating time, space, and a distinct sense of “having been there” into his work. His ongoing battle with Parkinson’s Disease is a profound topic of conversation in this one.

    Ep. 20 — Kim McCann

    Ep. 20 — Kim McCann

    Our guest Kim is an actor/performance artist for a historical museum, a writer (fiction, playwright, fan-fiction), and the quintessential artist type. The overarching theme for this podcast is how art, in its highest form, can evoke powerful emotional responses in people. This is a huge motivation behind the creative process, and in itself a fulfilling currency for many artists—tangentially, we talk about the ways our current economy can be crippling for creative types. We also discuss self-talk and how it relates to artistic validation and confidence, as well as the necessity of adversity in creative pursuits.
    When she's not working the job of her dreams, Kim is finishing up a few literary works and dabbling in booze infusion/cocktailing. You can find her on Instagram @kim.indy (https://www.instagram.com/kim.indy/).

    Ep. 19 — Harder Brunch's Dyke Michaels and Kris King

    Ep. 19 — Harder Brunch's Dyke Michaels and Kris King

    In this energy-filled episode of Forging Flame, Nick and Ryan sit down with fellow podcasters Kris King and Dyke Michaels, of the “Harder Brunch” podcast. The guys ditch the typical show format, and dig more into experience than process. The conversation goes some...interesting places. 
    Harder Brunch is a comedy podcast focused on late-morning food and drink with guests from the service industry and stand-up comedy. Kris King is a former bartender-turned-podcaster, with loads of experience being a gleefully bitter and abrupt booze-slinger around the Midwest. Dyke Michaels used to work at a summer camp. On mic together, they’re a perfect podcasting duo!

    Ep. 18 — Ricardo Laranja

    Ep. 18 — Ricardo Laranja

    Ricardo Laranja is a world class musician, producer, and Ryan's former college professor/mentor. Recorded on-location at Laranja Studios, we talk music, creativity, inspiration, teaching, food, Brazilian customs, and we nerd out at length about audio/video production equipment. Ricardo is a professor in the Music & Arts Technology program at Purdue School of Engineering Technology, he's the Music Director for his church, he teaches private piano and voice lessons, and he's always taking on fun side-projects. 
    Ricardo has always been helpful, insightful, and generous with his knowledge. And would you believe us if we told you he does a spot-on impression of Louis Armstrong? 
    Give Laranja Studios a follow on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/LaranjaStudios/) to see all the great stuff Ricardo is working on!
