E25: Postcards in a Digital World

Instagram is the the postcard of this time. That’s what Professor John Murphy said to me as we talked about the intersection of postcards and the digital world. John teaches in the Digital Media & Design school at the University of Connecticut.

We talk about how postcards fit into an instant gratification world, the collection of postcards his father sent his mother on his travels around the world in the military, and how postcards work to connect us in a hyper-connected world.

E24: Pinhole Photography and Postcard Swaps

What does pinhole photography have to do with postcards? A lot when the talented photographer, Moni Smith, join me to talk about the art of pinhole photography and her monthly photography postcard swap. I mention in the show that the first 10 people Postcardist listeners who participate in Moni’s postcard swap will also get a one-of-a-kind postcard from me featuring an original photograph I took. Also, if you haven’t rated the show where you get your podcasts, would you please do that?

This show is part of the continuing series on The Postcardist Podcast featuring creatives and artists who participate in and advance the sharing of postcards.
