It's the new Bash-O-Bash podcast! In this episode we introduce ourselves, learn a little about how little we know about trees, and indulge in some meditative chicken listening. Kidding (not kidding.)
Bash-O-Bash is a children's book series in the making, with an emphasis on love of place, heritage, a connection to the land (in Bash-O-Bash stories these will be played out primarily in rural Arkansas, where its creators, the Martin-Moats family live,) and characters who affirm and live out the right to question and explore gender and demonstrate a community where individuals outside gender norms can “just be living their good life,” as one of our fans put it.
Also in this episode is the song "Uncle Junior" by Woods Afire, written by Meredith Martin and performed by Meredith Martin, Rebekah Champagne, Heather Smith, Bryan Brown, Amjad Faur and Bryan Moats. It was recorded in Fayetteville, Arkansas at Listen Laboratories by Dwight Chalmers in 2003 for the album And Still There Is No Sign released by Heartshape Records in 2004.
Every episode is accompanied by an illustration by Bryan. Each episode and illustration will be connected in theme and will sometimes even be a page from an upcoming book or other Bash-O-Bash projects. (FYI, our Patreon supporters have access to sneak peeks and high res download versions of the illustrations.)
See you next time!
