Episode 124: Today I talk to local artist & entrepreneur, Cass Bradley. It is so inspiring! She talks about she “escaped” a successful corporate career and made a very successful artistic career. She did it! She is a master at juggling many pursuits and passions simultaneously. [p.s. that obnoxious thud is from me dropping my phone. #sorry].

Episode 117: Today I talk to a local “artivist” and muralist, Rosalia Torres Weiner. She has literally painted my whole neighborhood red…and a whole lot of other colors. I love it! She’s turned my neighborhood, as well as many others in Charlotte, into a gallery. With her Red Calaca Studio art truck, she brings art and hope to immigrants.
