Starving Artist is a podcast about art, money, and how to combine those things. If you’re a creative who’s ever wondered “how the hell do I make this work?!” then this podcast is for you. The show is basically an excuse for host and honesty enthusiast Honor Eastly to ask successful artists really nosy questions about their financial situation, and record the conversation.

This is a no-holds-barred exploration of the reality behind the Starving Artist myth, and season one features 12 interviews with some of Australia's most incisive young artists including Frances Cannon, Becky Sui Zhen, Abbey Rich, Wendy Syfret (i-D / VICE) and Steve Roggenbuck. The podcast takes us behind the curtain and into the machine room of contemporary artists, taking on everything from how to make a living from Instagram, how to negotiate a raise in the arts, to how to get out of your private freelancer tax shame.

Excllent!

Honor Eastly's interviews with various successful creatives is part interview, part advice, and a excellent series of stories about creative people. Highly recommended for creatives, fans of Honor's other podcast (Being Honest with My Ex), or anyone who likes listening to interesting people.

Fantastic and relevant to everyone

This podcast is well executed and produced. The subject matter is not only applicable to those who work as artists, but to those who have chosen to follow their passions off the beaten career track and even to those on more conventional career tracks. I especially appreciated the episode about how to ask for a raise. I think that this subject is particularly relevant for women (hello, gender wage gap...). Honor's laugh makes the podcast even greater. You won't be disappointed.
