The Hickory Museum of the Art presents An Evening with Matthew (Matt) Diffee on March 2nd.  Matt is a well known and popular Cartoonist with ties to North Carolina, whose creations appear regularly in The New Yorker Magazine and Texas Monthly, and has even graced the pages of Esquire. Even if you listen to this podcast beyond the date Matt appeared in Hickory, you'll still enjoy his story, examples of his mostly single panel black and white cartoons, and how his artwork has even connected to Bluegrass Music.  The interview originally aired February 23, 2018.
