Such Friends
Episode 78: I met Kathleen Dixon Donnelly on Facebook. She’s a writer who lives in Birmingham, UK with her Irish husband. She is originally from Pittsburgh.

Our research cross paths & her blog, Such Friends covers a lot of the same people in the Irish Literary Revival that I am writing about.  I wanted to have her on the podcast so  we could chat about the subject of my upcoming book.

Techno Abstractions

Episode 77:  Today I talk to Amanda Uribe and Natalie Kates of the Latchkey Gallery. The Latchkey Gallery isn’t your typical gallery. They don’t have a brick and mortar base. They partner with other spaces to house their exhibitions. It is so cutting edge! We talk about the Techno Abstractions exhibition which is currently going on at the Core Club on E. 55th street until August 31, 2018.
