GENERAL CONVERSATIONS is an hour long radio show where each month a different artist, thinker, maker, writer, etc. comes on the show to discuss their practice, their interests, and whatever else they feel passionate about.
Big thoughts through talking, GENERAL CONVERSATIONS is a monthly radio show focused on discussing ideas as they come. With the goal of generating questions that we think we already have the answers to, a rotating cast of thinkers, artists, writers, and just general creatives of all kinds will join the host Evan Fusco in a one on one conversation interspersed with music and sounds fully embracing the audio format of the radio show. A kind of anti-advice column, the goal is to generate new thinking in the form of the dialogue. The show itself will be accompanied by digital zine transcripts that lay out the conversation along with descriptions of the music and sounds.
