Episode 14

We’re joined by Adaja Cooper, an incredibly talented artist based out of Little Rock, AR. Her first ever mural, “Ain’t I A Woman?” (named after the Sojourner Truth speech) — a beautiful piece created in tribute to the adversities women of color face far too frequently — was vandalized twice, and restored twice. We talk to her about her reaction to the vandalism and the community of artists who rallied around her through it, why she hated drawing class in school, and the challenges she faced painting a mural for the first time.

Keith also teaches Adaja a little bit about Little Rock’s cheese dip history.

Guest bartender is Linda Garcia — mixologist, Certified Specialist of (both) Wine and Spirits (CSW, CSS), and former culinary school student. She talks about the virtual happy hours she hosts for La Boudoir, the cocktail mixer company she started during the shutdown, and shares with us an award-winning cocktail she made for Westward Whiskey.
