After Hours with Jeremy Kinter and Josh Stuyvesant

This week's podcast is a little different. Pyragraph Publisher and Editor Peri Pakroo was deep in No Rooz mode, getting ready for Persian New Year—which is today, March 20 at 4:45pm MT. (Happy new year everyone!) So Peri turned hosting duties over to Contributing Editors Jeremy Kinter and Josh Stuyvesant who did a late-night, after-hours special edition. Starting at 1:19am, full of gin and Tractor beer, Josh and Jeremy talked about things they always talk about and called it Self-Employed Happy Hour.

As creative partners, co-owners of an Albuquerque-centric arts cooperative, and up-and-coming writers, Josh and Jeremy's topics of conversation cover: when we're allowed to call ourselves writers, wearing many hats, commiserating over the writer's hooching habits, and the sometimes symbiotic, sometimes predatory relationship one has with his/her audience.

Skye Devore, Co-Owner of Tractor Brewing Co.

"When most people are growing up, they don't say to themselves, 'I'm going to work in a brewery some day!'" This observation from Skye Devore (who clearly didn't watch "Laverne and Shirley" as a wee lass) was true for herself, yet by various twists and turns she is now the co-owner of Tractor Brewing Company, one of New Mexico's most beloved craft brewing operations. Skye joins us to share how she fell into the brewing industry, how Tractor plays an active part in supporting arts and culture in Albuquerque, why craft brewing is so hot in New Mexico, and what it takes to get into brewing as a business. She is joined by special guests General Manager Alana Jones, and Laboratory/QC Manager Monica Mondragon, both of Santa Fe Brewing Company.

Host Peri Pakroo is joined by Pyragraph Contributing Editor Jeremy Kinter and Outreach Director Cara Tolino.

Women & Creativity: Shelle Sanchez, Julia Mandeville & Valerie Martinez

During the month of March 2015, more than 70 events will take place in Albuquerque and Santa Fe as part of the 10th annual Women & Creativity, an event celebrating creative women across the spectrum. The event was founded by arts consultant Shelle Sanchez and is co-coordinated by Valerie Martinez of Little Globe, and Julia Mandeville of Harwood Art Center, who all joined us in the Pyragraph studio to share details of the month's events and activities. Kristi Welton-Kidder also joined us to talk about how her group Women in Technology is participating in the month's events and representing women who pursue creativity through engineering, programming and other tech-based angles.

We had a great talk about the unique ways that women approach creative pursuits, how to build professional opportunities for creative women (and men) in New Mexico, and how to celebrate and support creative women year-round.

Host Peri Pakroo is joined by Pyragraph's Outreach Manager Cara Tolino.
