Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a discussion with Adam Field, Neil Celani and Joe Taylor. Field and Celani are members of Clayscope, a collective that uses Periscope, and other social media platforms, to build ceramic community online. Taylor is a software engineer at Periscope, who also has a passion for making ceramics. In the interview we talk about the nuts and bolts of the live streaming app, the qualities that make a Periscope broadcast successful and how digital communities enhance relationships and learning.
