Rachel Hurdley opens the window on an architectural feature which reveals a story of conflict, hierarchy, status and ventilation. The history of windows in our homes begins with simple openings, designed to let in some light and air but small enough to protect the occupants from intruders. Glass was rare and expensive so only the wealthiest could afford to show off their affluence with a display of glazed windows. But, as the technology of glass making developed, windows became larger and made a statement about sophistication and modernity. Rachel traces the history of the window from the arrow loops of Chepstow Castle to the massive plate glass windows of the 20th century and beyond. She visits Gloucester Cathedral to admire a stained glass window which was said to be the largest in the world when it was created and discovers how its design reinforced the medieval social order. Rachel also goes back to the 1590s to find out why Hardwick Hall was described as ‘More Glass Than Wall' and how its many windows were used to show off wealth and status. She discovers how department stores with their tempting window displays brought about social change and played a part in female liberation and she considers why windows suddenly got so much bigger in the early years of the 20th century. Along the way, Rachel hears from the Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, about how his lockdown window provided poetic inspiration and she reflects on the central question of the window – are we inside looking out or outside looking in?

The release of Rose Glass's 2019 film Saint Maud was cut short due to the pandemic, but the film still garnered enough attention from festival play and the awards circuit to become a talking point in movie circles as the newest horror film worth seeing. Glass received a lot of the praise as a new director who clearly has a sense of vision and story with this, her debut feature. And the performances of both Morfydd Clark and Jennifer Ehle were discussed as true highlights. Join us – Pete Wright and Andy Nelson – as we wrap up our Horror Debuts series with Glass's 2019 film Saint Maud. We are a bit split on Saint Maud. Despite the fact that the trailer for this was selected for a Saturday Matinée episode in December 2019, Pete didn't remember watching it so had no idea what to expect when he started this movie. When the story shifted at its midway point, that disappointed him because he was so engaged with what had been set up in that first half and he was never able to really connect with the film after that point. Andy, on the other hand, remembered the trailer and while he didn't feel the trailer changed his opinion of the film, he was able to move along with the shift in the story. So does that matter? Or does it end up becoming a point in the story where you just have to go along with the shift? Some people seem to be able to go along with that better than others but there certainly is a contingent of people online who seemed to connect more to the first half of the story. Outside of that, though, it's clear that Glass has a sense of story. We both firmly connected with Maud's journey, particularly as it relates to her time with Amanda. Both Clark and Ehle are perfect in their parts and the exploration of obsession, possession, and mental breakdowns are handled well. Glass crafted a difficult but affecting journey with Maud. We discuss the way she works through Maud's descent into madness and religious fervor. There's also some talk about her self harm. Maud also uses sex as a tool when she is trying to get out of her personal nadir before reconnecting with God. Then there's the conversation with Joy. If Joy had agreed to hang out, would all of this have gone away? Or would it have gotten there eventually? It's hard to say but interesting to think about. It's a powerful film that didn't affect us equally but is still a strong one worth looking at. So check it out then tune in. The Next Reel – when the movie ends, our conversation begins!

The long and distinguished leadership story of Fred Glass is well documented. He is widely credited as one of the best athletic directors in Indiana University history. In his forthcoming autobiography, he describes the importance of rooting leadership in clearly defined values. Similar to the great Packers coach Vince Lombardi, Fred's leadership principles are closely tethered to his Jesuit education. In this SGG episode, we discussed: 1. His initial exposure to Jesuit education: his father and Brebeuf High School. 2. Borrowing from the Jesuits as he sought to build IU athletics. 3. The messy situation that Fred walked into as AD at IU. 4. Healing the department before he could build it. 5. Grad at graduation. Five characteristics that Jesuit schools want to inculcate into students as they graduate. “It's everywhere…Every teacher has to drive these values into their students.” 6. Everything IU Athletics did was around the pillars: Play by the rules. Well in mind body and spirit. Achieve academically. Excel athletically. Be part of something bigger than ourselves – and more integrated with the university. 7. “If you are not a values based organization, then you don't have much of a chance to succeed.” 8. The difference between “GPS” and a “compass” to guide you. “Your value system is your compass.” 9. Fred's “living rules:” his father, Fr. Paul O'Brian, Herman Wells. 10. “Comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” 11. St. Francis: “Preach the gospel and use words if you have to.” And, “Seek not so much to be understood as to understand.” 12. “A lot of people are not listening so much as they are waiting to speak.” 13. Never interrupting other people. 14. “Interested is interesting.” The value of asking others questions about themselves. 15. The hardest thing about being an athletic director: firing coaches. 16. Ignatian discernment and detachment as useful tools in getting through difficult times. 17. “Take criticism seriously but not personally.” If you reflect on it and it's accurate, then there's a great opportunity to fix it. If you reflect on it and it's not accurate, then who cares?” 18. “Seeing God in all things.” 19. Getting criticism – and respect -- for the positions we hold, not who we are. “You've got to be careful not to believe all that BS people are saying about you.” 20. “Surround yourself with people who will tell you the truth.” 21. Fred's vocation: leadership. 22. The difference between asking “what's next” vs “what's at the end.” Choose what offers most opportunities downstream. And be open to the journey.
For a couple of years, I'd say the most common investigation request I'd get was "Why doesn't Lafayette recycle glass?" The natural follow-up, of course, is... "What happens to it?" Well...for most of the glass you use - it ends up in a landfill. Even the stuff you thought you were recycling all those years ago. And here's a disturbing fact: Glass takes one million years to degrade in a landfill. Think carefully before you toss that High Life bottle in the trash can. There is another option. Not recycling: upcycling. What's the difference? Finding a new and improved use for your rubbish. Glass makes great mulch. It keeps the weeds, mold and mildew at bay. It doesn't have to be changed out too much. And it's lovely. It'll make your garden glimmer. How do you make glass mulch? Tina Crapsi of Backyard Sapphire does it with a glass crusher she built herself. The “annihilator” can turn a case of beer into a pound of mulch in 15 seconds. Backyard Sapphire processes the glass and turns it into custom blends of colorful mulch. The service went viral quickly, and Tina and her partner Dawn signed up a few dozen subscription customers for curbside pickup and have begun working with local businesses, too. Bit by bit, Backyard Sapphire's grassroots approach is keeping tons of glass out of local landfills. So we're trying to clean up the ground, what about the air we breathe? Carbon emissions aren't the only toxin affecting our respiratory health. In Louisiana, we're in a constant battle with mold. Mold grows fast. It'll spread with just 60% humidity in the air. Now imagine what happens after a hurricane? A home exposed to water can be overwhelmed with mold within hours. We've actually managed to make this problem worse in the modern era. Drywall and synthetic glues have made building homes cheaper, but they've also created breeding grounds for mold. Just a little bit of water can create serious problems. That means mold remediation is essential business in our neck of the swamp, but it's actually not that common. Nicole Guillory Wenger and her husband founded DryMax in 2010 to respond to that gap. Nicole previously worked in architecture and did restoration work in post-Katrina New Orleans. DryMax has since come to specialize in remediation, working a range of projects from post-disaster clean up to remediating historic buildings. In Louisiana, there's no shortage of work in the mold business. And Nicole spends a lot of her time teaching customers about what to look for in a quality mold contractor, even if she can't take their work.

If the title didn't give it away, Dick Francisco is back to talk about the plastic in our bodies and why glass vibrators are a great alternative (0:41). Our hosts establish why they are talking about this and how it goes beyond #strawlesssummer (2:56). There are PFAC's in us and we can refer to groups like EWG to avoid those (8:30). This is because these plastics disrupt our endocrine systems. T reminds everyone that the Browns played a big role in this plastic revolution and asks why food is still segregated at the store (14:07). Saif points out the lack of recycling in this country and asks what can be done better (20:15). Dick gives us the lazy way before commenting on the insanity of plastic surgery (29:38). Saif chalks it up to good marketing (34:12) before getting into easy ways to begin changing habits at home (37:36). T gets excited to schedule his eye exam so that he can stop contributing countless contacts to the plastic problem (41:33). This does give our hosts the opportunity to acknowledge that plastics have made life more convenient in some aspects (44:08). Our hosts get ready to walk to the dogs, which are also eating plastic (46:35). Thank you for tuning in and giving us your continued support.

Wine is mentioned in many historical accounts in Afghanistan, as are the lush vineyards, orchards, and gardens. This is not the first thing many of us think of when we think of this country. This episode started as a curious "poking around" effort into unearthing whatever wine and spirits history Afghanistan had to offer. It resulted in a story with many loose ends that somehow always led back to the humble vine ... with some drunken Mughals along the way.

Inspired by Cycladic fertility icons, early Byzantine paintings, and folk art, Robin Grebe's figures serve as a canvas or setting for her narratives. Through these elegant and often autobiographical cast glass busts, she explores the universal quest to understand the directions our lives. Imagery from the natural world represents peaceful beauty, but also speaks to uncharted territory and the unknown. Using birds and plants as metaphors for mythic flight, spirituality, the intangible, and nature's uncontrollable forces, Grebe transforms her personal search into a shared exploration. She says: “I have always worked figuratively; in some ways my sculptures are autobiographical. They help me process my thoughts, ideas and changes in life. The sculptures usually incorporate images from the natural world. These images serve as a metaphor to both our fragility as well as our resilience in our personal/emotional/spiritual world and in the larger world itself.” Born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1957, Grebe earned her MFA in Ceramics/Glass from Tyler School of Art, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania and BFA in Ceramics from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Massachusetts. She has taught glass and ceramics at the Massachusetts College of Art and Pilchuck Glass School, among others. Her exhibitions and collections include the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art in Japan, the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey, the Taft Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Lowe Museum, Miami, Florida, and the Tucson Museum of Art in Tucson, Arizona, to name a few. One of the things Grebe loves most about making her sculptures is working wet clay to make her sculptural form. She builds a plaster mold around that clay form, and once it has hardened, peels the clay out of the mold and fills the cavity with chunks of colored glass. It then gets fired in a kiln to melt the glass into the cavity. Once cooled the mold is chipped off the glass sculpture. The glass is then ground, sanded and polished into its final form. Using cast glass, ceramic glazes, and transparent enamels, Grebe creates her monolithic and allegorical human forms, which seem simultaneously fragile and strong. To her, they illustrate the paradoxes of human life. Recent exhibitions of this work include a 2019 solo show at Habatat Gallery, West Palm Beach, Florida, and the group show, In Her Voice: Influential Women in Glass, held at the Sandwich Art Museum, Sandwich, Massachusetts, in 2021.

Ranging from the absurd to the edgy and aggressive, Joshua Opdenaker's glass reflects his never-ending struggle for perfection in theory and execution. His art is not expressed solely through the finished piece, but rather the physical dance of creating it. Innovative techniques and concepts inspire contemplation via ever-changing themes, making JOP! glass impossible to classify and leaving it in a class of its own. Born in Philadelphia, Opdenaker graduated from the University of the Arts with a BFA focus on stone carving in 2002. After years of carving stone, he began lampworking borosilicate glass in 2001 on the recommendation of his friend JAG. Flameworking became his technique of choice for sculpting, and the artist turned his focus to making glass pipes. While still an outlaw art form, the methods and creation were kept secret and not often spoken about in public places. Thus, he took on the moniker “JOP!” derived from an arrangement of his full name. In 2003, Opdenaker teamed up with Philadelphia Glass Works and became their permanent resident artist. After establishing his studio in Philly's Fishtown, JOP! joined forces with Elbo in 2014 to open Front Street Gallery in Kensington, Philadelphia. The gallery endeavored to bring the city's most influential, beloved glass artists into the limelight allowing fans and collectors to admire and purchase their newest work. It was essentially a who's-who of modern flameworking, featuring Philly artists like Zach Puchowitz, Snic Barnes, Marble Slinger (of Degenerate Art fame), Just Another Glassblower, and more. Front Street Gallery helped put Philadelphia on the map as a destination for the ever-growing glassblowing movement. Invited to judge the 2019 European Flame Off in London, Opdenaker has exhibited his own pipes around the world, often blurring the line between pipes and sculpture. In 2008, represented by Silica Gallery, JOP glass was exhibited at SOFA, The Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design fair.He creates in a broad range of styles to include his highly recognizable chicken rigs, medical series, giant cassette tapes, and his piece de resistance – The Baby Mecha Ganesh – a three-foot-tall, smokable baby with six arms. Opdenaker states: “If nothing else, view my work as original. Technique and craft can be learned, originality cannot. You either have it, or you do not.” The first in Philly's Fishtown area to make a name for himself in the field, today there are at least five glass studios and 18 glassblowers on Opdenaker's street alone. From group builds such as those of the Molten Art Classic to individual skill-building works such as goblets, JOP! glass' pioneering spirit continues evolving with the scene.
