Chocolate cake & a 10-pound Valium

Set down the politics and restore yourself with this relaxing and adventurous podcast by Renaissance woman, Pat Boddy. As a musician, poet, filmmaker, art doll creator, conservationist, engineer, mom, and [I'm leaving the rest out for the sake of space!], there may be no one better suited to interview the exciting array of talented artists associated with Mainframe Studios and Iowa--whether home grown, transplanted or just visiting. Her voice is butter and her energy is pure celebration of art, artists, humanity and this living on Earth thing we're trying to do. Turn it on. You'll feel better.

Wonderful!

As someone not involved in the art scene, this podcast is so interesting! I love hearing and learning about various artists and their connections to helping build community through their art. Wonderfully done, Pat Boddy!
