In s3e5, Ann Shafer talks with fellow podcaster and print evangelist Miranda Metcalf, whose show, Hello, Print Friend, is the internet's most popular podcast about prints and printmaking. Hello, Print Friend’s Instagram account has over 53K followers!

For those of you who don’t listen to podcasts, now is the time. For those of you who do listen but haven’t found many shows about prints and printmaking, that’s because there aren’t many. Like maybe five. It’s a striking and eerie parallel to the place prints hold in the larger art world: it's a pretty nichey place. Miranda and I are changing that through great content, connecting people, and sheer force of will. We are proudly self-described print evangelists and have much to discuss. Listen in as two print nerds geek out about all things print related and more.

As always, any images we discuss (what Miranda chose as her theoretical retirement gift may surprise you) and links to Hello, Print Friend are over in the show notes at platemarkpodcast.com.
