I sat down with Dr. Trudy Holmes-Caines before leaving Lincoln, Neb., and had a wonderful conversation for this podcast. She is a professor of psychology at Union College who came to the United States to pursue graduate studies. We discussed her life in Jamaica and how language plays a role in one’s identity, as well as how the immigrant cultures differ from the culture in their respective countries of origin.

After a few months without coming back to the studio, Slade and I return to say goodbye … kind of. Since the last episode, we have both been working on new projects: he’s launched a new blog called “The Obsessionist,” and I’m about to release a new podcast on Mexican politics, society, and culture titled “Independientemente.”

We hope to soon be back with new episodes for this podcast. So, as my English idioms fail me at the moment I turn to Spanish now: esto no es un adiós, es un hasta luego.

#020 – Natalie Bruzon

This week on the show: Natalie Bruzon. I had the pleasure of working with her (meaning for her) at The Clocktower, our college’s newspaper. Now, she lives in Orchard, a tiny town somewhere in Nebraska (and where’s Nebraska?), where she works as editor of Antelope County News. A few weeks back she came to Lincoln, so we sat down to talk about her new life, creating community, working for a newspaper, and the upcoming election.

I had a lot of fun producing this episode, and I hope you enjoy our conversation.

This week on the podcast we have Hannah Ashburn. She is an artist finishing up her college degree and finding what the next step is. Besides talking about what it is like to grow up white and how creepy I think Gothic paintings are, we tried to discuss the intersection between various art forms and history. Perhaps I shouldn’t talk about things I don’t know, but here we go!

This week on the podcast, Slade sat down with Micah Robinson to discuss our guest’s journey with music. They had an amazing conversation, of which I can’t say much because Slade doesn’t want me to. He says you should just go listen to it! (I agree.)

García Márquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold
