Season 1: Ty Dykema

To close out Season 1 of the podcast, I was lucky enough to spend some time in the childhood home of Grand Rapids artist and activist Ty Dykema. Ty's a writer for Bad Copy, a Chicago-based punk rock zine, a freelance illustrator, an outspoken advocate for accessibility and creator of the Skitchin' zine. Ty's been one of the most influential people in my life in the past couple of years, culminating in his spoken word set as Skitchin' Speaks at BLED FEST 2019.
