What do you suck at? Or, more importantly, what do you let yourself suck at? We dive into some seriously awesome topics like why it’s important to suck at something and the relevance of a liberal arts education (yes, even for techies!). Plus, business models for interdisciplinary careers and the very important question of, “What’s keeping you?” That’s right: it’s a C&C episode covering all the things!
If you had the chance to go back to college and do it all over again, would you? And what would you do differently? For our 50th episode, we’re deep-diving into a new approach to interdisciplinary education with Connecticut College president Katherine Bergeron. Listen and learn how you can adapt a framework of integration and connection to your own life, even if you’re long past your co-ed days.
It's our first live show at Interlochen Center for the Arts! We interview Kathleen Stetson, opera singer, acoustical engineer, startup cofounder and nonprofit spear-header about the power of not choosing, and we help Human Venn Diagram students figure out what to do with their lives. Plus, advice to our 18-year-old selves and a surprise appearance from Episode 21 guest Taoufik Nadji!
Are you a pirate, robot, or a ninja? That’s one of the many questions we discuss with Bryan Cooperrider, an educator, designer and musician who has been performing improv comedy for over 20 years. We discuss design as process, the intersection of engineering and art, and how to build community through music. Plus, Brazilian rhythms and grooves!
We interview Professor Butch Rovan, a performer, composer, media artist, and the faculty director of the Brown Arts Initiative. Once a rock musician in Los Angeles, Butch now creates award-winning work at the intersection of technology, code and composition. We learn why it’s artists who push technology to the nth degree, how to interpret your work from one field to another, and why movie soundtracks make us cry.
