We're moving on up! This week Kyle, Matthew and Producer Natalie sit down with comedian Ron Babcock to discuss Architecture for FARCH! (Or should we say, Farchitecture?) Ron talks about how growing up in Scranton, Pennsylvania, gave him a lifelong appreciation for architecture and how urban exploring an abandoned hotel almost gave him a torn anus. Other topics include house doilies, immersion blenders, tiny houses, abandoned theme parks, and they go gaga for Googie! Check out Ron's work over at heyron.com!
