This week on Dispatch, Joshua and Nicholas highlight how unnecessary boundaries, often erected by well-meaning-but generally-misinformed individuals can deter new, passionate artists from pursuing a specific, chosen path. That’s a mouth full, we know, but trust us — this is a great listen.
We start in the world of art, where sometimes, women in the arts don’t feel empowered as they should. On Chick Habit #10, Danielle Sines of Chicago-band Impulsive Hearts notes that some booking agents have asked her to adjust her band’s lineup to fit within their own, gender-balanced worldview. We ask, is this perspective right, or does it represent a warped sense of purpose?
Next, our old friends Half Acre have renamed a specific beer three times. Thankfully, they’ve been respectful to all parties involved, but at the heart of it all, a trademark dispute that might have been misinformed.
All this is coming up on episode one-hundred-eighteen of Dispatch.
