Here’s the 11th episode of MAKE‘s podcast, Make: Talk! In each episode, I interview one of the makers featured in the magazine.

Our maker this week is Yury Gitman. Yury’s a toy inventor and product designer who teaches physical computing and toy design at Parsons The New School for Design in New York. In the current issue of MAKE, Volume 29, Yury co-wrote an article about his Pulse Sensor, a wearable heart beat sensor that he created with his colleague Joel Murphy.

Before the interview with Andy, I mention a cool project on our Make: Projects site. It’s a guide on how to harvest and use squid ink, which you can use for cooking or printing. It was written by Instrucatables.com co-founder Christy Canida.
