Anji Marth’s Paintings From Quarantine (Episode 89)

Anji Marth - The Horrors book coverAnji Marth been a professional tattoo artist and painter since 1999. Her published books include Tar and Gravel, Knuckle Sandwich, the resonant eyes series, and The Horrors coloring book for adults. Her current project is a series of abstract paintings, Paintings From Quarantine. She also works in taxidermy as assemblage art as well as illustration. Anji grew up in coal country, Pennsylvania and has lived in the Pacific Inland Northwest for 24 years. She and Wendy share a wide-ranging conversation on the left/liberal/conservative/right political spectrum, what it is to be a prepper, and her painfully beautiful paintings in response to this very heavy year.

The show kicks off as usual with 3 Random Facts and the News. In the Facts Dept. are some revelations about the stone heads on Easter Island, Travis Gienger’s big win at the 2020 World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off, and the U.S. tornado count in 2010. Then co-hosts Wendy Sheridan, Mary McGinley, and Robin Renée discuss the U.S. Presidential election that is now less than two weeks away, early voting, and opportunities to volunteer to get out the vote (See links in “Things to Do” below.). In non-voting news, Amy Suskind published “This is Not Normal” in The Washington Post, a list of things that shifted during the Trump presidency (and need to be rolled back or otherwise remedied) and Jeffrey Toobin’s masturbation misadventure. Later in The Geekscape, Mary, Robin, and Wendy talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly among beliefs and remedies sometimes called “woo.”
