Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Juan Barroso. His ceramic forms are decorated with finely painted pointillist images of family members and objects that link to childhood memories and immigrant narratives. In our interview we talk about taking the “handyman” approach to art making, how pointillism stands as a metaphor for labor, and how art is a conduit for expressing emotion. To see examples of Juan’s work visit

The long rise of anti-Asian violence in the U.S. is a stark example of xenophobia and white supremacist violence. I hope you will join me in committing to stand against this violence by learning tips for Bystander Intervention. The organization Hollaback! has partnered with Asian Americans Advancing Justice to provide free bystander intervention training, as well as de-escalation training to help the public learn how to safely step in when you see violence online or in person.
