    E76 Old Timey Podcast

    Ethan is away making magic in New York City so Nick and Graham go old school with a chatty old-timey podcast. They talk about what they've been doing since the last show, Graham's new Franken Holga 3D Stereo abomination to make pictures no one can figure out, the arrival of Nick's Lomograflok back for Instax Wide, Nick's appearance on Cameraocity (Cocaine and Waffles), and what a sustainable analog future might look like. 

    Thanks to Robbie Cribbs of Sound Trap Studios (https://soundtrapstudios.com/Sound_trap_studios/Home.html) for letting us use the music.

    E73 Reimagining the Holga

    E73 Reimagining the Holga

    Graham received a message on Etsy from ArlenB asking if it's possible to recreate the Holga with a few twists.

    "Out of curiosity, is there anything preventing you from making the plans to print a regular Holga 120GCFN, with an interchangeable lens, zone focusing, and no light leaks, or is that too difficult?"

    This episode is a discussion about a potential Holga replacement.

Nothing like it

There is nothing else like it on podcasts. Listeners will participate in a discovery, in real-time brainstorming, makers making right before your ears. The podcasts are long, but what Nick and Graham have produced is a very well-thought-out series that builds and builds. It helps to follow them on Instagram so you know more about what they are developing. I am an amateur film photographer, and I think you probably have to be pursuing at least some of the hobby--but I think digital shooters might get even more out of this than I do!

Not for the faint of heart(non-photographers)

An excellent listen that works more like a study than entertainment. Very detailed discussion which would probably escape a casual listener; if you are considering shooting film, buy a camera first and then listen to this podcast.
