Hey there!This is our third and final episode in our series “Emotional Doodles” - drawing to alleviate anxiety. Reminder: UCSF Pediatrician and friend of DrawTogether, Dr. Lee Atkinson-McEvoy, shared that she’s seeing unprecedented levels of anxiety in kids and asked if DrawTogether could help. So we’re doing a few short, simple, fun drawing podcast exercises here on the podcast that can help reduce anxiety in a big way. You can do them on your own, with family members or friends, or with an entire classroom. The first episode explored how drawing varying types of abstract marks can help us identify feelings, and scribble them out of our bodies and onto the page. The second episode used drawing to focus our attention on things we’re grateful for, which studies show helps reduce anxiety and depression. And TODAY, we do a simple and powerful doodling exercise that I do all the time. Let’s call it LINES. It’s simple, powerful meditative drawing exercise. After a few minutes you feel more calm, less anxious, and you end up with a pretty cool drawing. So grab a pen and a piece of paper and press play. It’s less than 10 minutes. :) And COMMENTS! Friends! I heart feedback! Your input helps me know what is and isn’t working. Are these too long? Too short? Too literal? Too abstract? Easy to follow? This is one big experiment, so please take a moment and leave a comment or shoot me a message. I so, so appreciate it. Thank you! And thanks Chris Colin for the DT Podcast drawing music, Amy Standen for the edit, and Thao Nguyen for the DT theme song. See you next week with a very different kind of drawing direction. xoxo,w Get full access to DrawTogether with WendyMac at club.drawtogether.studio/subscribe
Hi, it’s me, WendyMac. It’s episode 3 of the DrawTogether Podcast! It’s also my birthday week. To celebrate, I wanted to do one of my favorite drawing exercises with you, which also happens to be a DrawTogether classic: the world famous Heart Spiral. But let’s do it with a twist… If you’ve watched DrawTogether, you probably know the Heart Spiral was inspired by cartoonist, writer and educator (and DT patron saint) Lynda Barry. Lynda believes drawing spirals helps people get out of their head and into their bodies. (We strongly agree!) In this episode, we meet another artist with a spiral drawing practice: Louise Bourgeois. Louise made drawings constantly from her home in New York (and before that France) until she passed away at 98. Best known for her large scale installation and sculptures, she also drew, carved, printed and painted spirals using all sorts of materials She even created spirals using text. She said, “I love the spiral. It represents control and freedom.” Louise believed the direction in which you draw a spiral changes how you feel: when you draw outside in, you feel in control. Draw inside out, you feel a sense of freedom. In today’s DrawTogether podcast, we explore Louise’s hypothesis. I’d love to know - did drawing a heart spiral change the way you feel? Did you notice a difference between the two? Let me know in the comments below. And I’d also love to see your finished drawings. Post them on instagram and tag @drawtogether.studio to share them with the DT community.Happy Diwali!Later this weekend, subscribers will receive a special post celebrating Diwali by illustrator Ishita Jain. Become a subscriber-supporter to get more cool stuff like this, and help DrawTogether keep going and growing. Thanks to Chris Colin for the music, Thao Nguyen for the DrawTogether theme song, and Amy Standen for the mix. Everything is better when we Draw (all sorts of spirals) Together!

Hey it’s Wendy! We have a special DT treat for you today - it’s a fun art experiment: A DrawTogether Podcast! (Sort of.) But really, when we say listen up, we mean it literally. Grab a pen and paper and PRESS PLAY on the audio above.A little backstory: when my TED talk came out, it was released only via video, and not via audio on TED's iTunes podcast. Some folks didn’t think that such a visual talk would translate to audio. The wonderful Helen Walters, head of curation, advocated for the talk to be on iTunes. People agreed, and up it went. Since then, so many people have responded positively to the audio-only version. Like, big, big feelings. Seems that listening to a talk about looking works. So I thought… what if we created an audio-only DrawTogether?? A drawing podcast. Would it even make sense? Would it be relaxing? Confusing? Calming? Frustrating? Fun? Answer: I DON’T KNOW. So, in true DT spirit: let’s try! It’s just a short 5-minute drawing exercise, and it’s powerful for focusing and centering. If you haven’t already, grab a pen and paper and PRESS PLAY at the top.How was it? Tell us in the comments below. If it’s clear and relaxing and fun to do, maybe we’ll try more. Thanks Chris Colin for the awesome background music, Kate Levitt for the mix (Kate is not only lead of the DT Classrooms project, she is also a DJ!), Hrishikesh Hirway for the audio advice (his TED talk on listening was my fave of the conference), and writer Jon Mooallem who has been working with me on DT ideas since the jump and suggested doing something with audio ages ago. If this doesn’t work, blame him! :) P.S. - Educators and community leaders! This is THE LAST CHANCE to apply for the FREE DrawTogether Classroom program!! APPLY HERE. Deadline is this Sunday. If you already applied, you’ll hear from us next week.P.P.S. - DrawTogether was featured in the LA Times! Get full access to DrawTogether with WendyMac at club.drawtogether.studio/subscribe

"Und was machst du am Wochenende?" ist unser Podcast mit Tipps, Ideen und Gedanken für die kürzesten zwei Tage der Woche – moderiert von Christoph Amend, Editorial Director des ZEITmagazins, und der Schriftstellerin Ilona Hartmann. In Folge 13 ist David Wagner zu Gast. Er ist vielfach ausgezeichneter Schriftsteller, wurde 1971 in Andernach geboren und lebt seit 30 Jahren in Berlin. Er kennt sich mit der Stadt so gut aus, dass er sogar weiß, wo in Berlin die Feigen wachsen. Im Podcast erinnert er sich an seine Jugend, als er sich die Haare mal blau, mal grün gefärbt hat und zum Samstagsunterricht musste. Er erzählt, dass er leidenschaftlich Marmelade kocht und Hafermilch selbst herstellt – und dass er seit einer Lebertransplantation vor 15 Jahren in jedem Sommer einen zweiten Geburtstag feiert. David, Ilona und Christoph empfehlen für dieses Wochenende: “Verlaufen in Berlin” – David Wagner “Nachtwach Berlin” – David Wanger und Ingo van Aaren “Der vergessliche Riese” – David Wagner “Kindheit” – Tove Ditlevsen “Echos Kammern” – Iris Hanika “OFF.

Rollerskating is "back" in style. Today, we meet a man who is welcoming people into the skating community. Then, we hear about the roots of a longstanding San Francisco bicycling tradition. Plus, from our podcast New Arrivals, San Francisco author Chris Colin reads a bedtime story for adults.
After more than a year of pandemic living, our lives have migrated online to a remarkable degree: we Zoom and tweet and Slack all day, then Netflix and Hulu ourselves to sleep. Now, as we emerge into a hopeful spring and summer, our challenge is to awaken the adventurous sides of ourselves that have gone dormant. In this episode, Chris Colin, author of the brilliantly funny new book Off: The Day the Internet Died, puts forth a simple solution: just start talking about all the awesome outdoorsy things we wish we were doing instead of staring at our devices. He explains how to make your way back to the strange and magical experiences that can only be found in the real world. This episode of the Outside Podcast is brought to you by Lake Hartwell Country, a largely undiscovered region in the mountains of South Carolina that’s one of the best adventure playgrounds anywhere. Visit lakehartwellcountry.com to start planning your trip now.
Chris Colin is a writer and author whose work has appeared in Best American Science & Nature Writing, the New York Times Magazine, Pop-Up Magazine, Wired, NewYorker.com, and Outside Magazine. In 2014, he co-wrote a book called What to Talk About, and in 2020, he started publishing Six Feet of Separation, the nation's first pandemic newspaper by and for kids. Chris just published a new book, Off: The Day the Internet Died: A Bedtime Fantasy. It's a kid's book for adults -- beautifully illustrated, quirky, fantastical -- and it makes readers wonder: how would we all survive and deal with ourselves without the internet? In this episode, we talk about the joy of writing a kid's book for adults, how joyful it is to go offline, how you can do it without going cold turkey, and the benefits of an analog world. Just like Chris's book, this episode is short and sweet. Enjoy!

Chris Colin is a reporter for the NYTimes the New Yorker, and Wired Magazine. His book OFF, The Day The Internet Died is a comical picture book about a day when all the screens went dark. We all dream about a life free of scrolling or tweeting, but Colin imagines what an analog world might actually look like and why our attachments to our screens has created a new kind of addiction and dependence.
Chris Colin and Rinee Shah are author and illustrator, respectively, of the new book Off: The Day the Internet Died, A Bedtime Fantasy. Off is a humorous, illustrated imagining of what might happen to the world if the Internet were to die from one day to the next.

They also talked about how this past year—dealing with the pandemic—has impacted our relationship with the Internet. Chris and Rinee explained how they collaborated as writer and illustrator. Rinee shared additional insights into her process as an illustrator, both as it pertained to Off and in general. Chris shared why he decided to make the book a humorous one, as well as his thoughts on writing humor. Rinee explained how she used her illustrations to complement the humor in the story.

We had tremendous snow. Historic snow! A back-to-back-to-back #snowmageddon scenario. School was cancelled, life was disrupted, the power went out and everything was white. Finally, I put on my big honking duck boots and noisy nylon pants and went for a proper walk. (By the way, does any one read these summaries? Just curious.) It was all so novel and disorienting: the bristly sizzle the snow made as I sunk in near to my knees; the altered, iced-over geographies of the trail; the disappeared blackberry vines, weighed down and buried somewhere in the drift. The world was familiar, but different: a semi-barren, bleached-out cousin-planet to my ordinary home. I was thinking about the Mars rover, which had shut down that week after all those years zapping back dispatches from its ramble across a similarly alien landscape; its final missive home: “My battery is low and it is getting very dark.” Well, unfortunately, my recording rig doesn't carry itself with the same dignity. Friends, it zonked out on me unannounced, a thousand steps from home. And so, this episode ends without ending—we will set out together, but never return. And you will not be hearing my own signature sign off either, though I mean it just as earnestly as I type it out now: Thanks for coming on the walk. That was nice. This week's walk is sponsored by Erik Bloom's Birthday, brought to you by his friend Chris Colin.

Leah Rose talks to Chris Colin about his story “The Eden of Weed” from San Francisco Magazine's April 2016 issue. In his story Chris gets high and takes a trip to the Solar Living Center in Mendocino county, California. The Solar Living Center is an ecological-Epcot Center that was created by an enterprising environmentalist named John Schaeffer whose been at the forefront of the back-to-the-land movement since the 1970s. Last year Schaeffer updated the Solar Living Center by building a marijuana dispensary on the grounds. The dispensary is an added attraction to the Center whose renewable energy and permaculture exhibits attract 150,000 people per year. But with the pending legalization of recreational pot in California, the Solar Living Center could soon welcome busloads of weed-happy tourists. It's a new era for Mendocino County which, as Chris writes, may soon become the Nappy Valley for weed.
