Podcast with Maggie Rudy

Oh, man, I had fun talking to Maggie. She is just a delight--funny and interesting, excited about what she's doing and willing to share information. I had no idea when I first saw her work on the pages of Art Doll Quarterly--podcasts are always iffy when I don't know the person because I never know if they're going to be good to talk to. Just because someone's doing cool stuff doesn't mean they're willing or able to talk about it. Some people are just not very good conversationalists, you know? And that's fine--we'd rather have them do what they do so well. Maggie, however, is fabulous at both: she makes cool stuff and she's great to talk to.

Thanks for listening. I just loved talking to Maggie--talking to someone who's excited about what they do is just the best. I don't care what it is that people do--the product isn't what interests me so much--it's the process, the excitement and inspiration and ideas and tools and, and, and~~
