Mihai Pavel’s journey through photography, literal Instagram peacocking, and the toxic nature of social media

On this week’s show we have special guest Mihai Pavel (@familiarspot), from the Sacramento area, on to talk about his journey through photography over the years, his Romanian roots and its influence on his music, as well as his thoughts on the role of social media and emerging technologies, i.e. smart phones, in the field of photography as a whole. And of course we go on tangents about conspiracy theories, not being able to compete with Dexter the Peacock, the toxicity of online comments, and get an answer to the age old question – Signs or The Village? Check the full episode out above and tell us your thoughts, comments, and questions about the topics in the episode.
