Candi Presents...

shiny. crafty. gifty. delicious.

It's art and politics, science and pop culture! 
chat show filled with super opinions and [gasp] real facts!

Join Candi and Noodle as they try to make sense of the world, muse on the human condition, 
and spread a little love.

Warning: So much adult language.

In this episode, Candi and Noodle are joined by Jen of @jennibcreative to talk art! We share some of our favorite book and album covers, talk hangovers at the Louvre, and get a little VHS case nostalgic. Plus, how we're spending quality time in nature. Ducks play an important part.  

Bonus: book noises

Hang out with us. It's fizzy lifting drink for the soul.
