Chinese skycraperIn this very special one hour episode, Keram interviews his own flesh-and-blood sister Vanessa on a stopover to Los Angeles during the course of an amazing journey that has taken her from a four-day trek along the Inca Trail to the ancient and magical cloud city of Machu Pichu in Peru to the polluted and technologically advanced cities of the Canton province in China and its wonders untold for a series of tech conventions.

Keram and co-host Aimee Lynn Chadwick hear from Vanessa about unlocking the codes of textiles from one region of the world to another, how the loom is the precursor to the laptop, the critical differences between natural and synthetic fibers and dyes, the lake of floating islands in Peru powered by solar panels, the latest subversive street art  from Hong Kong and China, the semiotics of fashion and so much more.

Join the KeramCast on this amazing voyage of discovery and insight.
