Dragonsongbird ,

Brilliant artists. Lovely stories.

I enjoy every episode of this podcast! Sometimes I make a coffee and sit with a Michelle and her guest, as she suggests. Other times I take them for a walk with me. But I learn something wonderful in every visit. As a “wannabe” visual artist I highly appreciate the humanity and honesty all these artists bring to the table!

Keep these stories coming!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
