Podcasts

Over the years I have done several podcast interviews with some really interesting folks.  Some of the conversations are philosophical, some technical, some pedantic, but they are generally sprinkled with lots of humor.

The Dad Show. Jonescast

Recorded in front of a live audience in Portland, OR, this episode of the Jonescast revolves around the realities of being a father and a potter. All four guests (Kyle CarpenterSimon LevinPeter ScherrSean Scott) have had to figure out how to make their way as potters as they learn how to be fathers. You will also hear how important all of them consider their partners to be in their working life. This episode is brought to you in part by the Oregon College of Art and Craft and by NCECA.

Anagama West Podcast

In February of 2007 I was interviewed by Odin Maxwell for his Anagama-West blog. We cover reduction cooling, philosophy and apprenticeships.

Claycasting with Matt King.

While I was in Taiwan as a Fulbright Scholar, Matt King a graduate student at the time at Tainan National University of the Arts, was starting his own Podcast.  We took some time to sit down and talk about art, travel, and how commitment opens opportunities.

Fulbright Interview

My exit interview with Fulbright Taiwan, in 2013.

Fulbright writes "As an artist, one of Simon Levin's passions is a search for cultural identity. He believes indigenous clay is a metaphor for the malleable foundation upon which we respond to the world. Simon's Fulbright journey has lead him to dig, process, test and explore the properties of domestic clay in the U.S."
