Season 2 Episode 1 with Bonnie Bentley
TRIGGER WARNING- In this episode some very traumatic experiences are recounted and spoken about at length.
On Saturday, August 21st the mid-south had one of the most devastating flooding events in recorded history. Bonnie Bentley art teacher at Waverly Central High School lost most of the supplies in her classroom in the flood and is grieving 20 members of her tight nit community.
In this episode, Bonnie discusses how the flood has impacted her community, how she's making it through, why she's going back even after 29 years in the art classroom, and supplies she might need (she actually doesn't even know fully what has and hasn't made it from her classroom) when her students go back sometime in the next month or so.
The TN Art Education Association will be collecting supplies for all three Art Classrooms at the Fall Conference. The Educators' Cooperative will be accepting general classroom supplies. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions
If you would like to reach out to Bonnie directly her email is email@example.com
If you know of other art classrooms that were impacted by the flood please reach out to Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org

Episode 20 w/ Sydney Ray
I found out about Sydney through Sisavahn Phoutavaong Houghton who sent me the link to her incredible zine "The Remains" about women artists she sought to know more about. Her illustrations of each artist are as filled with as much passion and curiosity as each thoroughly researched essay. I immediately bought 5 copies to give out to fellow artists and educators. I hope one day it will be required reading for art education programs and until then I hope everyone else buys 5 copies and spreads them around!

Episode 12 with Lauren Klein
If you like thinking deeply about the world you'll love this episode that finds Lauren in Mexico City explaining Futures Literacy, the importance of hair to all of us, and giving kids the tools to live in their preferred rather than probable futures. It was a fascinating conversation that I am still digesting almost 3 months later.
