We're back and with special guest and artist/photographer/videographer Sara Meghdari (@szmeghdari). We discuss the difficulties of being a photographer in NYC, her first live public performance, which showed the very private act of covering and putting on her hijab, and recent art shows around the city. We continue with art news such as more interactive art exhibits popping up across the country, scents and smells being incorporated into exhibits and museums as it's own art form and to enhance or change the way we perceive art, and the world's first cryptocurrency art auction taking place. Then we close things out talking about Seasons 2 of 'Westworld' and 'Luke Cage', and the underappreciated 'Queen of the South.'
