Where we continue the return to our roots and present Matt's second in-the-moment summary of day two in New York City back in early February. This time he talks about autobiographical art by Winfred Rembert, paintings by Jennifer Packer, contemporary ceramics and craft, and of course Jasper Johns and the beauty of a retrospective. He wraps up with his failed visit to a Nikola Tesla themed bar and instead stumbles upon a semi-secret candlelit bar in Koreatown and some super satisfying Korean fried chicken. --- Send in a voice message:

Where we talk about our experiences traveling without renting a car. It works and can definitely be cheaper. We cover trains, trams, taxis, subways, buses, ride shares, and funiculars. It takes a bit of planning but makes for a great travel experience. Benefits are how it can get you closer to the locals and give you some extra decompression time. --- Send in a voice message:
