Brooklyn-based artist Colleen Asper talks about: Her short-lived fight against a rogue landlord and subsequently learning about renter's rights; her experience with Occupy Wall Street and other activist groups, and the surprisingly regressive anti-feminist attitudes she experienced there as well as in academia; her teaching experiences and wisdom learned at art schools including Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Yale (among the 14 schools she's now taught at); and how her training in ballet has more recently translated into her painting, and her explanation of why dance in contemporary art has become something of a trend.

New York-based artist Alison Kuo talks about: living in the Financial District of Manhattan--how she came to live there and what it's like; her performances using food, including her recent Chinese restaurant-inspired New Jin Guang II at Motel in Brooklyn and her piece 'Serve Me a Drink;' her being from Texas (Dallas), and the Texas expats that she's congregated with in New York; thoughts on molecular gastronomy, including her experience eating at the renowned (and now close) WD-50; her popular photo blog Accidental Chinese Hipsters; her love of tiny old people; her route to performance through teaching ESL to adults; and as a bonus, she and Michael Shaw play a game of name-a-food-artist.

New York-based artist Austin Thomas talks about: being a 'gallerartist' - a mix of artist and gallerist, and the various ways she's engaged the art world and community through her Pocket Utopia galleries and projects; her experiences both working for and collaborating with artists as a gallerist and artist advocate; her community organizing-oriented public sculpture 'the perch,' which will be unveiled in the spring (of 2016); her path to living in Chelsea, despite originally trying to buy a house in Williamsburg; and her upcoming incubation period in which she contemplates her next steps as an artist advocate, booster and supporter of community-building art ventures.

Along with co-host Deb Klowden Mann, Eileen Cowin talks about: her being a long-time Angeleno, yet still feeling (more) at home in New York, where she grew up; her 30-plus-year career teaching at Cal State Fullerton; her epic 'studio visit' experience, which are combined into her video of the same name; how her work has been received in L.A.compared with New York (it depends on the decade); her upcoming project for the MLK Jr. Metro in Los Angeles; and, in a special bonus segment, she talks about the differences between the "ART World" and the "Real World," and how embracing what she had led to good things happening for her.
