483 - Apocalypse Party: AID Live with Florian Bertmer, Derrick Castle, Dan Mumford, and Dave Kloc

David Defeo

Mark Brickley's Apocalypse Party is the first official coverage of the potential beginning of the end in America as we know it. We assembled an unofficial United Nations consisting of Florian Bertmer, Dan Mumford, Dave Kloc, and surprise guest Derrick Castle to help us strategize and reorganize life on the other side of a really bad choice that may or may not have been made yesterday. Do you have a backup plan for an economic downturn? Do you know how to make turtle soup or hunt for squirrels? What do you loot first? Can you get on King DJT's good side by capturing his unholy orange glow in a timeless portrait? AID Live returns to help you plan for whatever is left of your future from pioneering digital illustration techniques to snapping out of creative lulls from creative minds spanning the globe.
