We've been fortunate to talk with some remarkable folks in the past two years but none has had a story of perseverance like that of today's guest, Hanifa Nakiryowa. The native of Uganda was the victim of a horrific acid attack in December of 2011. But to characterize Hanifa solely as a victim would be a mistake. As would be to say she is just a survivor. She is a woman who has determined to thrive, to advocate, to champion others, and most importantly, she is a strong parent to her two daughters so that they will do the same. The founder of the The Center for Rehabilitation of Survivors of...

Architecture can define a city. But as our guest Rob Pfaffmann explains it, architecture can also choke off the social spaces that connect a community.  On the podcast, we discuss the immense value that comes from preserving our architectural failures. For two guys who always wanted to pretend to be an architect, it was a treat to actually interview one as fascinating as Rob.

The author Dorothy Parker once said, “Creativity is a wild mind, and a disciplined eye.” On today’s show, we pay tribute to our friend Dave Vissat who had the wildest mind, the most disciplined eye and all the other elusive tools to become arguably the finest art director in Pittsburgh advertising history. Dave died late last year, but his work — and more importantly his contagious creative spirit — will be felt for years to come.  See for yourself at DaveVissat.com while you listen to some of the people who knew him best: Michael Brunner, Scott Morgan, Tom...

She’s an award-winning, genre-bending artist. A poet who sings. A songwriter who makes films. And a podcast guest we’ll never forget.
