Ana Clara Padovani (IG: postalesycartas) joined me from Argentina for a chat from about postcards, pen pals, books, music…and football. This show is a classic case of “postcards connect people.” Listen to find out how we connected.
In which I talk about postcards (and many other things) for 36 minutes, 26 seconds, and 121 milliseconds. Plus there’s some music as an intro and outro. This is the last in the series for National Postcard Week 2021.
In which I talk about polymer physics, design of experiments, rheology, digital calipers, coefficient of friction, bending deflection, stiffness…and why in the hell so many postcards get marred in the mail.
I chatted with postcard collector extraordinaire Mark Routh of Mark’s Postcard Chat about what defines a postcard — and how we make a distinction between a postcard and a piece of art. I think you’ll be surprised at the answer.
