Artist and writer Cynthia Girard came by the studio for an interview. We talked about her artistic practice and her recent exhibition at the Parisian Laundry. She also read a passage from her book J'ai percé un trou dans ma tête, an excerpt of which appears in translation in the recent publication The Coming Envelope Issue 8.

The program aired on November 7th. (Note: if you are accessing the show through the archives you must advance to around the 30 minute mark (which is 14h30) as the file starts at 14h00)
