WRITTEN BY: WIL WILLIAMS, JOSH RUBINO, AND JOHN WESTOVER
PRODUCED BY: WIL WILLIAMS

It’s a very NSFW one, pals! And also, it’s got VALENCE S1E11 spoilers, so make sure you listen to that first! In this episode, I talk to Josh Rubino (Liam) and John Westover (Nico) about conveying “fuck energy.” But also, we talk about modern art, control issues, and how people convey their trauma.

Check out Cornelia Parker’s “Mass (Colder Darker Matter),” the art piece discussed in this episode, here:
