Let’s get something straight off the rip. Angela Carroll is NOT a critic. Why? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out. I was going to split this into two separate episodes, but the knowledge Angela graces us with is best received in a single sitting. The Maryland native went to the West Coast, and among the eldritch redwoods did she receive an education in the art of critical theory, and had her train of thought challenged in a way the East Coast could not challenge her. Angela brought that experience with her back home, and works as an artist-archivist in Charm City. She wants to give DMV artists the credit they deserve, and celebrate bodies of work that are decades in the making, and far from finished.

*A few sentences about how COVID19 has us all inside, near stir crazy, wishing we could go out for more than the essentials* but when we HAVE to go out on those essential runs, or to Druid Park to walk around wondering when that Trump check is gonna hit, health experts say we should wear a mask. In this interview I talk with Aaron Jones and Alysha January of Bushelers of Baltimore. Before the rona, they did alternations, tailoring and garment repair for the city. Now they’re making masks to serve Charm City in its time of need. They don’t want to get rich off the custom handmade masks, but it’s put them in a position a lot of small businesses wish they could be in during this time; they’re busy as hell. Listen as they talk about creating a comfortable and affordable mask, the feedback and response they’ve received from Baltimore residents, and how what they’re doing today will impact and influence Bushelers tomorrow.
