This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a live episode with Bobby Silverman, Michael Strand and Tina Gebhart. We discuss a broad spectrum of design related topics including education, the role of hand made in the contemporary design studio, and the ever changing boundaries of good taste. This episode was taped in front of a live studio audience at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia, PA as part of Design Philadelphia.

Tina Gebhart, Michael Strand, and Bobby Silverman with Red Clay Rambler host Ben Carter.
