How do you balance wanting to be different and wanting to be liked? My guest this week is Levi Hastings, an illustrator who grew up feeling like an outcast in his tiny religious Idaho town. He could tell he was an outsider, and so he decided to lean into it: embracing anything dark and sinister and brooding.
It felt good to freak the world out with his talk of vampires and Marilyn Manson ... but it was also a little lonely. He knew there were other people like him out there in the world, he just wasn't sure where to find them. At least not until one eye-opening road trip to Seattle.
