Thank you

This podcast broadened my horizons. Doesn't hurt to have Eddie's beautiful voice deliver this content to my ears.

Love love love it!

Love this show! I live in regional WA, 2 days drive from any capital city, so I rarely get to travel the galleries and shows I desperately wish I could see without serious financial and time cost. The Hub on Art is like an Australian art-pulse that keeps me involved and informed in bite sized chunks. Bless Aunty for delivering this inspiration and insight 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Where’s the whole show gone?

Love the whole program, but what’s happened this week to break the show down to individual segments, it’s going to disrupt my play back experience.
