Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with cultural historian Bob Batchelor. He has written on diverse subjects ranging from comic icon Stan Lee to prohibition era bourbon boss George Remus and has recently published an illustrated history of Rookwood Pottery. In our interview we talk about the life and work of founder Maria Longworth Nichols Storer, the role star decorators like Kitaro Shirayamadani played in the success of the company, and the effect the Great Depression had on Rookwood. The book is now available anywhere fine books are sold and can be purchased from Rookwood at www.rookwood.com. For more information on Bob visit www.bobbatchelor.com.
On this week’s show I also talk about using www.iwillvote.com to locate your polling place and find out how to vote by mail in the upcoming American elections. Visit the website to find out more on how to safely vote in your state.
