Episode 12: Doug McCraw and Evan Snow Art and technology.  On the surface, there may not seem to be many similarities between the two. But both bring people together, and in their own way, they make people’s lives better.  Both act as vessels for people to express themselves; through painting and singing or live-streaming to social media.  In essence, they’re both tools we use to engage and express ourselves with each other.
