A podcast about the maker movement, maker culture and all things making.
We talk to Alex Bandar of the new Machyne Makerspace at the 16Tech Innovation District in Indianapolis. Alex has more than a decade of experience in building and growing makerspaces and shares some of his secret sauce with us.
Jessica Hornocker of Anderson Prep Academy talks about their detailed plan for building makerspaces at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Cool stuff includes SonicPi https://sonic-pi.net/ and the photography of John Smith https://wideeyedilluminations.wordpress.com/
Katelyn and Joel review the year in making and make some resolutions for the new year. Share what you will be making in 2021 on Instagram with us MakerRiot or on Twitter @makerriot1 or on Facebook we would love to hear your plans for 2021.
How do you make your space more sustainable? We have a conversation with Erin Riley @eeriley99 about how we can minimize the impact of our spaces. We also introduce a new segment called "Meet Your Maker." We had a short conversation with Craig of Hammerspace in Kansas City about his articulated character from the wildly popular game called Among Us.
