#32 Judy Linn (Patti Smith 1969-1976 : Photographs) / Jessica Vecchione (Smacked Documentary) “Photographs of the Imaginary Past”

Today we’re shouting out to Vote Save America, AND the NY Times podcast from last weekend, The Last "Year of the Woman".

Our first guest is Judy Linn, photographer and Vassar professor, best known for her book Patti Smith 1969-1976 : Photographs by Judy Linn. Judy talks about her relationship to photography which started out quite rocky and quickly becomes the thing that she needs to try and figure out leading her to a lifelong relationship with the art form, and a very successful career. Judy has had portfolios published in Artforum and BOMB magazine, and her photographs are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Detroit Art Institute, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Getty Collection, among others. She has received an award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and grants from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, Anonymous Was A Woman, and the Peter S. Reed Foundation. Judy shares so honestly about her life and her unique perspectives including her belief that all photographs lie. She’s working on another book of photography taken in the early 70’s from her time in Detroit working for a local paper. Can’t wait for this…hint, bouffant hair and pointy collars.

Our second guest is Jessica Vecchione, videographer and documentarian. Her company is Vecc Videography, she’s been an accomplished videographer in the Hudson Valley for over 20 years. She recently released SMACKED, her new documentary film about the opiate crisis. This 69 minute film was her way of truly uncovering all that is happening with the police, the health care system, and those who struggle with the addiction. Jessica shares how she really broke through in film by making a documentary about the town of Fleischmans. She works with many nonprofits in the Hudson Valley and across New York State. Jessica’s advice to aspiring videographers/filmmakers, just do it, follow your passion, and be kind along the way

Self care! Be KIND!!! Move from the heart space. Don’t fall into the patriarchal trap of operating from the analytical mind.

#29 Jacinta Bunnell (Girls Will Be Boys, Coloring Book) / Jenny Shulkin (Ooh LaLoom) “Coloring Outside the Lines, Weaving and Dying”

Today Shana and Theresa Girl Talk on the state of #metoo after tuning into 1A’s coverage of CBS’s handling of the allegations against Les Moonves and how corporations are preparing across the board for continued allegations to surface.

Jacinta Bunnell brightens the studio with her creativity and enthusiasm for her feelings. Jacinta is an artist, activist, author and co-founder of B.R.A.W.L. She shares how studying Philosophy helped to shape her ability to think critically and how that in conjunction with taking care of children helped her to see how important it is to feel safe to color outside the lines. Speaking of, she has 4 very important, Queer positive and gender bending, coloring books that are opening up the lines and the boxes that kids have historically found themselves in. She recently began supporting Planned Parenthood through her art activism where she helps young people create art telling their story about how Planned Parenthood has helped them. You can see all that goodness at iluvplannedparenthood on Instagram. Finally, if you need helping sifting through belongings and getting rid of what you no longer need, Jacinta is the Marie Condo of the Hudson Valley.

Jenny Shulkin of OoLaLoom joins us and talks about how she got into weaving and the intricacies of weaving and dying. How she is finding her way in her craft staying true to herself and the way she wants to be weaving, creating and learning and evolving the business side of her work, and how she stays motivated and pushes through or gives herself permission to stop when she wants to.

Self care today takes us backward, or forward, stuffed animals and how slowing down is important for everything to continue to exist, including YOU! Tune into the podcast Secret Feminist Agenda that Shana recommends if you want to learn more about the art of slow everything and how stuffed animals may save your health and your sanity. Theresa talks about mantra…again, and one of her favorite musicians, Erika Wennerstrom, and how her lyrics have been her mantra when times get tough. Erika has a new-ish album out that is all about self-love, yeah! Go and get it and watch those mantras running in your head.

Next week we welcome GT Thomas, musician and artist and Lauree Ostrofsky, Author, Career Coach, Hugger, Founder of Simply Leap, LLC and Hudson Valley Women in Business. Until next week, love yourself and uplift one another.

#28 Theresa’s Nieces (Roadtrippin) / Jamie Sanin (CelebrateWomxn845) “Being a Girl and Supporting Womxn”

Girl Talking about grannies and being little girls. Theresa shares her interviews with her nieces as a bird’s eye view into the life of a 9 and 12 year old. Shana’s in studio guest Jamie Sanin, artist, educator and founder of CelebrateWomxn845 talks about breaking down access and the resistance to art from the viewers perspective. Self care brings us to forgiveness this week. A big topic that we just touch upon.

#28 Theresa’s Nieces (Roadtrippin) / Jamie Sanin (CelebrateWomxn845) “Being a Girl and Supporting Womxn”

Shana’s holding down the studio while Theresa is reporting in from Wisconsin. In Girl Talk, we talk about a new show idea of street interviews of hip grannies that Shana has affectionately dubbed "biddies." Which leads us to a shout out to Antonio from la Voz and his coverage of Grannies Respond and their caravan to the border at Texas to protest the government’s treatment of immigrants seeking asylum. Then Shana and Theresa take a trip down memory lane to talk about life as they remembered it as a 5th grader, what it means to be a cool kid, and the challenges of not feeling like one.

Intro to Theresa’s roadtrippin interview with her nieces Eva (9 years old) and Amelia (12 years old) which was recently recorded on a car trip where Theresa tries to get into the head of a young girl. They are big into Youtube, no surprise there, like to dance, play sports, do math, and go tubing.

Our in studio guest is Jamie Sanin, artist and educator who works for Orange County Arts Council and founded CelebrateWomxn845. Jamie shares her memories of being a 5th grader, how she was big into music and choir and how she continues to be an artist and create art to this day. She enjoys breaking down access and the resistance or fear of art from the viewers perspective. How CelebrateWomxn845 began and how it was consciously inclusive of womxn who also identify as.

Self care talk is all about forgiveness today. Both Shana and Theresa have been exploring forgiveness in their own lives and how it feels like a form of self care, so this will probably not be the end of the conversation. If you’re looking for support in helping yourself forgive someone else, or even yourself, here’s an initial resource that Theresa found which may be helpful to you.

Today’s show was engineered by Manuel Blas from Radio Kingston, and we heard music from our very own Shana Falana. Until next week, love yourself and uplift one another!
