Coffee break’s over and it’s time to get to work — The Mirror Factory is back in business! A very special guest joins host Max Romero in this episode: Mrs. Mirror Factory! Max’s wife Sandy Salinas joins us to talk about one of her favorite short stories, “The Student,” by Anton Chekhov. Together the pair will discuss the author’s brief tale of hope, how it can provide inspiration to artists of every stripe, and the warmth that can be found on a chilly Russian evening. Sandy will then share a passage from what Chekhov himself called both his favorite short story, and his “manifesto for optimism.”
