Ep. 68 – Too Late To Be Awesome (Chanelle Henry)



Chanelle Henry wanted to be awesome. She saw people selling companies and building inspiring products and wondered if it was too late for her to be that awesome. That question inspired a Medium blog post that ended up getting a lot of attention, and getting her invites to speak on that very topic. She tells us how that post helped her reach her awesome, and the changes she made in her life to get there.

Ep. 65 – Art and Code (Dan Shiffman)



Dan Shiffman doesn’t like titles. As an open source contributor, author, and professor, it might be because he has so many to pick from. In this conversation, we touch on all three, focusing on his work with Processing, a software sketchbook and language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts, why he loves working with beginners, and how code can be an expressive and powerful artistic medium.
