Podcast #19- Conversation with Taylor Swope- Artist & Owner if Little Hippie
This weeks podcast is an in person visit with Taylor Swope, artist and owner of Little Hippie- an amazing place to find creative Grateful Dead licensed clothes- accessories- artwork – and more for free spirited families- www.littlehippie.com
Taylor and I met up in Hartford CT to both get the personal experience of meeting each other, as well as to get the best sound quality – and it was a good call! We had so much fun, and I think this is the highest quality sound podcast to date.
We get to chat about her days as a young teenager in CA discovering the Dead- her further deep dive upon returning to CT-the call back to the music and community post college & living abroad, and ultimately the inspiration that moved her brightly as an artist, and business owner.
Along the journey we have some laughs, and touch on everything from meaningful lyrics, life on the road, festivals, our warm welcome to John Mayer, & how special the Deadhead community is passing torches from one generation to another for over 50 years.
Thank you for listening- and enjoy!
