Destination DIY Detour with Kate Bingaman-Burt

We’re kicking off a new interview series to complement our regular podcast episodes — a collection of detours, full of conversations that go into uncharted territory with some of our favorite thinkers, makers, and tinkerers. We’re still going to be bringing you monthly Destination DIY stories. These conversations will just be an additional stop (and download) along the way. We hope you enjoy it and, please, let us know what you think!

Our guest for this inaugural detour is Kate Bingaman-Burt. She's a maker, illustrator, and associate professor of design at Portland State University. You may have seen her work in her long-running series of zines, which became the book Obsessive Consumption, in which she documented her daily purchases. She also designed the paper that goes in the basket with your Chipotle burrito.

Kate is fascinated by outdated technology, like cassette tapes, and she's not a very effective thief. Destination DIY's Julie Sabatier sat down with Kate inside a geodesic dome that serves as the headquarters for Design Week Portland.

Kate's multimedia show, including eight years of daily drawings, More, More, More is going on at Liquid Agency through the end of 2014.

One Bad Mother Episode 75: Finding The Time To Talk, plus guest Shaun Wiley

| 0 comments
Show: 
One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Shaun Wiley

Biz and Theresa wonder how we find time to discuss family business with our partners, or -- shock of all shocks -- simply talk and connect with our partners?! How is it possible two people can live in the same house and not find time to talk? Oh, that’s right. We have kids. Plus, Biz gets comfortable with being a “plain old mom” and Theresa takes a chance and talks with the parents of Simon's playground "bully." And, we talk about why so few men take paternity leave in America with our guest Shaun Wiley, Professor of Social Psychology at The College of New Jersey.

A link to Shaun's study will be added whenever it becomes available:
The Daddy Dilemma: Femininity and Poor Worker Stigmas Lower Men’s Intentions to take Paternity Leave in the US, by Joseph Firnhaber, Jason J. Dahling, Shaun Wiley, and Julie Hughes

Upcoming listener meet-ups!

PHILLY: October 11th at 11:30AM at Smith Memorial Playground.

AUSTIN: Potluck on Saturday, October 18 at 11 am @ Little Stacy Park. The meet-up organizer will have a star-shaped balloon so people can spot the group.

TS154:Vagina Massage, Lesbian Jobs, Female Statues, Communes

Throwing Shade
Have you ever had an earth witch on a commune stand across from you and massage herself from her legs to her vagina to her chest without breaking eye contact? Then you and Erin have a ton in common this week. Also, a lesbian teacher was fired from her school for getting pregnant and did you know that women only make up less than 10 percent of all statues in the U.S.? Sad but true but dumb.
