We’re taking a little break, folks. Season 2 will be dropping in July and we are working on some big surprise guests. Until then stay safe, wash your hands and know that we are wishing you all brighter days ahead.
EugCast is recorded at Trifoia in Eugene Oregon!
In this episode, Adam Wendt talks with Eugene resident and octogenarian Herb Pendleton about growing up in the 1940s and 1950s in New York City. Herb reflects on his decision to join the military and pursue a career in the fledgling computer industry at IBM in the early 1960s. Herb was one of the first African Americans to work in the computer industry during the 1960s and then worked in telecommunications during the 80s and 90s. His career spanned almost 50 years working in the technology sector before retiring to raise his family in Eugene.
In this episode, Adam chats with Jefferson Goolsby. A Pacific Northwest intermedia artist and faculty in the Media Arts program at Lane Community College. His creative work integrates video (multi-channel, screen-based, expanded cinema, and live cinema); interactive systems; sound design; installation; performance; and image making. Jeff often works with his award winning music composer wife, Dr. Mei-Ling Lee.
Find out about the children stories they are working on. One is called, “The Ocean Thief.” A beautiful tale about the ocean taking stories. Somewhat performance art and hopefully coming to a book store near you. You may also get some insight on what it’s like to work with your partner. Good and bad.
