But what does innovation look like when you are in the midst of that change? And how do we all feel about it? 

Let's keep it real. Let's kick it old school.

How is it possible that backyard chickens and collecting vinyl have anything in common? Are these old school ways just a trendy bandwagons, or whether something else going on here.

Featuring Eliane Glaser, Hillary Chicken, Hannah Krishner and Tonality Records.
