This week I meet author, Chris Lester.

Chris saw my post about looking for artists in Madison for the show. He responded with the question, “What about writers?” I thought he had a good point. Writers are creative people also. So I set up a time to meet him. Chris is a Sci-Fi writer and he also releases his stories as a serialized audio podcast on his website.

Free Music Archive: A talk about the future of music and art on the internet - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 210110

One of my favorite music sites is opening again, the Free Music Archive !  I talk with  Hessel van Oorschot from the Netherlands who's company Tribe of Noise bought the site after it was shut down a few years ago. We talk about his plans for the relaunch of this site. But we also talk about the future of art and music on the internet. How different organizations like Coil and Grant for the Web are trying to find ways to help creators, artists, and musicians build their work outside of an ad-based revenue model. This conversation isn't just for musicians it's a discussion about what the future of art on the web could be and what some of these organizations are trying right now.

In every version of the game, there are a group of children that go through Candy Land. In the earliest versions of the game, it was a realistically drawn boy and girl.
