Podcast: Never Not Run


Guest
The Why’s of Running
2022
“Vasha's background is difficult to sum up. She's lived in many places and possesses many skills. Her website describes her as an adventurer, ideator, and visual provocateur. What we know for sure is that she is incredibly knowledgeable about the current state of running and works with many fitness companies. We were so grateful she took the time to chat with us before her trip to run the Berlin Marathon and covered our widest range of topics yet.”

Undo Ordinary
2022

“I had the chance to sit down with Vasha from Undo Ordinary to talk about her creative path and how she fell in love with running along the way. Vasha talks about how she's developed her skillset throughout her career, became a world class creative problem solver, utilized run-in gas rebellion and how she's been navigating through unpredictable times. Check out her recent tee shirt collab, as well as her personal website linked up in the notes!”

Divided States
2021
A PLAYLIST FOR THE AGES   

As a nation, it can feel like we are polarized on everything from mask-wearing to Hawaiian shirts. But what does a divided states sound like? After all, these fissures run long and deep, but music has the potential to bring us together, in fandom, on the dancefloor, or even as a release valve.

We ask one of our favorite music curators, Naivasha Colette Thomas (seriously check out her Spotify playlists), to put together a playlist of 50 tracks that, for her, brings to life the state and mood of our nation today.

New York
Interview
2012

“California native, now Brooklyn based artist, costume designer, prop designer, set designer, stylist, dancer, photographer, and image consultant, Nai Vasha stays in motion and moves with purpose. She has created for Chromat, Fruition Las Vegas, Stussy, Aegir Boardworks, Xochi Menswear, Defsound, Ana Lola Roman, Rock Jacobs Film, J*Davey, ReInspire Brooklyn, Nicole Medoro, Frankie Presley, Rocksmith and more. We met up at Union Square in NYC to talk life, people, career, and where she's headed. We got to work with Nai at our Summer Soul Sessions July Edition, where she projected images over So Super Sam's set that had the party people and Paperbox and CS staff wondering why we couldn't all just walk around with our own projection artwork around us everywhere we went? Life would would be so colorful and certainly more thought provoking.”
