My name is Emmanual Santana and I've been cutting hair for over 20 years. Through the process of cutting hair, our guards come down and intimacy develops. Looking at each other through the mirror, a conversation evolves and it's possible to learn, explore and connect. This podcast takes you into my haircutting conversations with creatives and educators from a variety of cultures. Like me, they are curious about the world, how things work, the mind and the heart and they understand the value of their work.
