103. Brain Debris: Nostalgia

Remember when everything was better? Remember when grandma sent that sweater that one time and it was your favorite? Remember when…? Nostalgia can be a great thing as you reminisce or think back on good times. But does nostalgia play nicely with the art and design world? It’s hard to really nail down because memory and nostalgia are so tied up with who we are now and where we have developed from.

This week as we all prepare for Thanksgiving, Ryan and Garreth sit down in the studio to talk about looking back and how nostalgia interacts with studio practice. And don’t forget to have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Help Ken Gilbertson and Hatchback Gallery!
Our good friend Ken has a new hatchback and is trying to rebuild Hatchback Gallery to better serve his new city and its art lovers. While he won’t let anyone touch the outside of the gallery, he does want to get a few new parts and build some new walls. We are helping Ken launch a GoFundMe; even a few bucks can be a big help!

The Ken Gilbertson Band’s Christmas album can be found on Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Spotify and Pandora.
