There are people in your life you go to for some advice, some perspective, maybe even a little... real talk. Carissa Potter, the brilliant mind behind People I've Loved and a fine artist in her own right, is one of those people. Through a particularly bold vulnerability and honesty, she navigates both contemporary life and art with a sense of questioning, longing and introspection while simultaneously creating a collective sense of community with her audience. This is such a rare feat, and in a year of uncertainty and change, Potter's work spoke volumes.

In 2020, Potter help co-found If You Were Here Now, a platform that gave artists the opportunity to share their process and creative spirit when we all were looking for a little camaraderie. As Carissa and Radio Juxtapoz co-host Evan Pricco worked on a few projects over the last year, they sat down to talk about... well, what they talk about all the time together; drawing connections in art, understanding communication through the arts, those vulnerable moments of being exposed through art and just how the past 12 months have affected both their practices.

The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by FIFTH WALL TV's Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 064 was recorded via Skype in the Bay Area in January 2021.
