Thoroughly researched, and a joy to listen to

Art Matters is hands down my favourite art podcast, and one I’ve recommended many times. It chooses engaging topics, researches them thoroughly and presents the findings in a way that is accessible and listenable! Highly recommended, especially for those who want to start engaging with art history but may be daunted by the field
