All of the hosts and interviewers you’ll hear from for the rest of this season are Chapman students who have completed the Podcasting class, which is just one of the topics offered through the Center for Creative and Cultural Industries course: 304-Creative and Cultural Industries in Practice. In class, we focus on the relationship between theory and practice. This means that after discussions focused on the importance of podcasts in modern media, we go out and create our own podcasts. Students who had no podcasting experience or technical ability were able to contribute all of the segments to the Chapman Catalyst podcast, with the goal being that they will take this ‘hands-on’ experience and carry it over to the launching of their very own series.
In this episode, of season 4, part 2, Leora Kalili and Valeriya Lozovan sit down with artist Kyle Rosen in his home, to talk about everything that makes the art in Kyle tick. They talk to him about his first attempts at art including a saucy sketch he rendered while in 1st grade. Then talk about the subject himself,… the artist. What engenders creativity in an artist? What kind of music helps him create? What’s the best time of day for him to make art? What “art” interests an artist? By the end of the episode, they discover that Kyle, like many artists, isn’t just singularly focused on any one type of creative endeavor but rather is inspired by all of the art that surrounds him.
