The AVR Podcast: Music, Art, and Creativity in RVA
About This Show
The AVR Podcast features some of the most interesting people in the city as they talk about what, how, and why they create. Whether it's music, art, or any other form of creativity, I get the full story on how the vision came to be, and how it then became a reality. The primary focus is on underground musicians, innovative artists, and revolutionary creators of all sorts in the beautiful city of Richmond, Virginia. This program aims to be a meeting ground for creators and innovators of all types, a place to share ideas, and a place to tell the stories of the countless creative individuals and organizations that make RVA such a wonderful and exciting place to be. We try to talk as much about the history of my guests and their specific realm of creativity as much as possible, but occasionally we get side tracked and talk about whatever the hell we want!
Most Recent Episode
Episode 019 - Amelia Langford
This week, I present to you the first season finale of the AVR Podcast! And man, is it a great episode. I had the opportunity to sit down with the multi-talented Amelia Blair Langford. She is a muralist, illustrator, graphic designer, and manager of the Grace Street Theater. On this episode, Amelia and I talked about her journey up to this point in her life. We spoke of our mutual love for Virginia, her practically lifelong goal of being an artist and attending VCU, the many opportunities that have been presented to her through hard work, and how she developed her style and process.
I should also mention that this is essentially the end of Season One of the AVR Podcast, and I am honored to end it with such a great guest. A huge thanks to everyone who has been a part of the show and anyone who has helped to make this dream of mine a reality. And a very special thanks goes out to my absurdly supportive and talented wife, Polina, for her assistance and encouragement!
Keep an eye out; after I return from Berlin (mid- to late August), I will be writing a little dispatch/update on some possible upcoming events and the future of the program.
