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

Gorgeous content

This pod has really helped not only by being so informative, but also Ferren’s mindful delivery, calming manner and great passion for her subject. If there were a best practice for podcasts I think it may be this x

New favourite podcast!

Only recently discovered this podcast and I’m very glad that I did. The episodes are really informative and fun and I’m learning a lot about different areas of art I haven’t touched on before :)
