Tower Talks from Washington National Cathedral

A Conversation with Chris Budny, Docent and Artist

June 23, 2020

Hello, and welcome back to Tower Talks. This episode of Tower Talks is going to be a little different. If you are part of the Cathedral community, then you have likely heard about the recent changes the Cathedral has had to undertake due to the on-going challenges brought forth by COVID-19. Dean Randy penned a letter explaining the path forward, which can be found here for you to read: https://cathedral.org/press-room/dean-hollerith-covid-19-closures-mean-changes-for-the-cathedral/

Unfortunately, given these circumstances, this will be the last episode of Tower Talks for the time being. No matter what happens in the future, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for listening in to these conversations and for supporting this project that we’ve put so much love into. It has been an absolute joy to bring this podcast to life and to share it with you these past few months.

We could not imagine a more wonderful guest for this episode than Chris Budny, a long-time docent at the Cathedral with a deep love for architecture, building arts and photography. We spoke with Chris about his path towards the Cathedral, what he loves about the building, and the ways in which the Cathedral has challenged him both as a docent and as an artist in the last two decades. Chris is a genuinely kind, funny guy who clearly loves the Cathedral, and we hope you enjoy our conversation as much as we enjoyed talking to him.
