On this episode of Timecode Presents, we talk to our longtime friend, still and motion photographer, Todd Taylor. What follows is a fly on the wall recording of photo skate dorks discussing topics that range from dollar movie cinema, Easter eggs, sourcing VHS tapes, to historical New Orleans east skate spots. We talk about why making art and making trash is the point, and usually one and the same. Hosted by Randy Perez and Ricardo Barrosse, prepare to nerd out. Check us out on Apple Podcasts and Spotify!
