Chasing Mermaids to Find Beauty: Nathanael Lark and Una the Mermaid on The Backpack Show

Episode Description

One of Chris’s favorite artists and philosophers, Nathanael Lark, joins us to talk about art and portraiture, and share his perspective as a cartoonist. For years and years, Nathanael made amazing art with the tag line, “I can see your beauty.” He’s working on new projects now, but what’s true about this hero is that he’s one of the most beautiful people Chris knows. Come fall in love.

Our other guest on Thursday is sure to make a splash! (Sorry.) Una the Mermaid is a professional mermaid who travels the Pacific Northwest (with her own 900-gallon traveling tank)! We’ll talk with Una about opening the International Mermaid Museum, what’s in store for the 6th Annual Portlandia Mermaid Parade, and the documentary film Sirens Call.

When she’s not mermaiding, Una works as a restorative justice educator serving incarcerated populations in the State of Oregon. This episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone will be a deep dive! (Sorry again.)
