Foreground/Background podcast episode 17: Mim Golub + Chuck Scalin

The latest episode of my Foreground/Background podcast is out now! Give it a listen below or subscribe on your favorite streaming service (including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Anchor, Breaker, Overcast, Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts and Radio Public) to get new episodes as they come out.

For this very special episode I’m interviewing my own parents, Mim Golub and Chuck Scalin! Both Mim & Chuck are artists and art educators and were of course fundamental in my own foray into the art world. It’s always a pleasure for me to hear the stories of their career arcs and I’m so glad to have captured this conversation in my studio earlier this year, before the Covid-19 Pandemic hit the United States. Thankfully both of my parents are healthy and continuing to stay safe through this unusual time.

In this hour long conversation we discuss:

  • Growing up in immigrant households

  • Being first-generation college graduates

  • Sexism in the education system

  • Creating art internationally 

  • And more!
