S02 Episode 6: What Risks Do You Take?

American Bandito episode card

We've talked about how seeing the work in public makes a huge difference. But what about insurance in those places, not only for you but the items you display? What about planning for the future like emergencies or health issues?

So, the question this week is:
"What risks do you take?"

If you create things in your spare time, you've probably thought about trying to do it for a living or maybe you're just trying to get the guts to put it out there for the first time.

So what would it take to follow through and actually do it?
To help understand what it's like, listen to what these local creatives say about what they do.
Here's a list of the places I talk to in each episode this season.


Each week I ask one question and find out where the conversation takes us, to learn more about how these people decided to take their process one step further.

S03 Episode 11: Luke Bassuener, Art Teacher

The person that I meet today I read about in the Isthmus. He was creating a stop-motion film with the students he teaches in his art class at Crestwood Elementary school. And the film they made was screened at this year’s Wisconsin Film Festival. After reading that article I kind of had to talk to him. How could I not? And he’s a musician too.

We decided to meet at the Monona Terrace during the Mini Makers Fair.

But the pop-up interview I’m going to play for you this week took place just a few weeks ago when Merijoy and I had visited Browsers Bookstore on state street. After meeting the woman that worked there we just had to come back and talk to her again, because she was kind of awesome.

A year ago when I first read his book I never would have imagined this would happen! And I'm glad I do this comic because I always forget to take pictures for this kind of stuff.

It's funny to think I can actually have a group of online friends, people I will probably never meet. But I don't think of them that way.
