HOWDY and welcome to the 8th episode of Long Arm Stapler, a podcast about zines!


(please excuse the background noise; some folks were using a power drill in the adjacent studio! tried my best 😊 )


This episode, I am joined by Andi Lake (featured in episode 7), and L. Herrada-Rios, a photographer/zine maker/fest organizer/all around great person. Andi and I hosted a zine-themed art show at Rock Paper Scissors Collective for the month of September 2019, and L. was one of the featured artists!
