S03 Episode 11: Luke Bassuener, Art Teacher

Episode Image Card


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.

This weeks episode I meet Jason Scott.

Jason is a sculptor of large and small-scale pieces, which includes jewelry. And it all seems to relate back to when he studied to be a sushi chef years ago.

A nice email.

It's so touching that we were able to help someone, even if it was just a little bit, as they go through a difficult time.

MST3K in real life.

It was a strange way to meet someone that's for sure. I didn't realize they had two shows in a row so I didn't get to meet up with him afterward which was too bad.

Here is the actual photo that was taken.
