While the The National Press Club hosted Latvian President Raimonds Vējonis for a barely relevant talk about the situation in Eastern Europe in light of the current migrant crisis and increased military spending in this former soviet satellite, hosts Peri Pakroo and Clarke Condé spoke with an expert, Steven J Westman, at the Albuquerque Press Club to address complex geopolitical questions like who he is and what he has been up to lately.

Steven, who is the longtime author of The Curious Townie column, updates us on the 505 Faces project which he helped photographer Wes Naman organize and execute: a comprehensive collection of photography and interviews taken during a month-long road trip criss-crossing New Mexico. (You can reserve your book and support the project via their IndieGoGo campaign.) We also chat about local publishing in ABQ, Balloon Fiesta and beard combs.

Big thanks to Contributing Editor Jeremy Kinter and Turtle O’Toole for running tech and keeping things afloat.
