Season 2, Ep. 1
It is said that our brains only remember things in three ways:Through highly emotional connection, like deep joy or deep traumaThrough repetitiveness over a long period of timeThrough photosWhen one of these ways isn’t available, the memory will fade and eventually get archived, deleted from consciousness. We only remember our lives through one of these “anchors”Unfortunately, when photos are simply digital files, they’re hardly ever looked at, and often end up lost, deleted, or corrupted. Even when we save photos on a cloud service, that’s where they end up: literally on a cloud, far away, forgotten. If we don’t print them, it’s very likely that we won’t see them again.Eyewitness is an opinion campaign, spearheaded by our own Fabrizia Costa, to raise awareness about the importance of printing your photos.Ugo and Fabrizia are back on the podcast to discuss this.

"Create" with Marc Silber
Season 1, Ep. 16
After a hiatus of a few weeks, the show is back, but for this week’s episode we have something different from our usual format.A few days ago, our good friend, photographer, educator, and writerMarc Silberinformed us that he was about to publish his latest book, titled “Create: Tools from Seriously Talented People to Unleash Your Creative Life”.We thought that the topic of the book–creativity and the tools and processes that help creative people produce their best work–would be perfectly appropriate for out podcast. So we asked Marc to be our special guest and talk about what it takes to be truly creative.
