In this live-streamed episode with Chat with Political Cartoonist, Daryl Cagle. Daryl shares his journey from Muppet illustrator, to toy inventor, to America’s most widely syndicated political cartoonist.

Today on Blurred, Jesse Lee Stout talks to us about his work as a creative lead for Moment Factory, a new media and entertainment studio specializing in multimedia environments.

If you grant the premise that cooking is an art form – and we most certainly do here at Blurred – then the man you’d want to talk to about it is Chris Anderson, Executive Chef at Moto Restaurant in Chicago. Moto specializes in molecular gastronomy, the physics and chemistry of food, and is continually pushing the boundaries of what we eat (and how!)
We talk to Chris about the current state of the food industry, innovating on classic American recipes and comfort food, and the art, craft and science of “dishing it up” – coming up on Blurred Radio.
This episode is for foodies, innovators, Americans, and any artist or creative who feels stunted in their work.
