Podcast Interviews

I was about three hours into a four-hour tattoo when my tattoo artist said, “why don’t you do a podcast?” For years, my students, my friends, my family, and the people I run into at dog park have asked the same question. I don’t have a good answer. One of these days I’ll get around to it. In the meantime, you can hear me on the excellent podcasts listed below.
