Episode 41: We (Re)built this City on Brunch with Erika Johnson

We’re in the Strip talking all things creative with Erika Johnson, Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse. We dig into the culture of makers and builders that have transformed Pittsburgh into a destination for creative personalities, and moving beyond the image of “guys with beards”. Also discussed: The perils of buying vintage, breaking racial boundaries, and a brief history of Dia De Los Muertos.

Recorded on location at Marty’s Market in the Strip District.
