Happy New Year!!

Ep. 4 Is This What the Northwest Smells Like All the Time?
So, Chris drove across the country in 3 days, which is crazy, and apparently was also extraordinarily detrimental. Thankfully, many fantastic people came together to help. Adam is working on something bigger than he’s used to. Welcome to the Podcast!

Ep.2 Who are These People in Your Ears?
In this episode, we play around with a slightly more controlled format, and discuss a little more in depth how we got invested in our respective fields. We hint at some possible future endeavors as well as pick apart parts of each other's history.

Ep.1 Always Apply Texture
In this episode, we introduce ourselves, discuss work we've done together, and sort of just get the wheels spinning on the podcast. We were lucky enough to have our friend Taylor join us, and together we break down what it means to be an artist with a specific community label, growing beyond labels, and juggling the mental stress of people judging works that we view as extensions of ourselves. Thank you so much for listening to our first episode. We love and appreciate all of you.
